Will McDonald IV NFL Draft photo
NYJ g GB (A Rodgers)
The Jets have built an identity around a stifling defense. Having added Aaron Rodgers and multiple weapons on offense, they add talent to the pass rush. McDonald offers a different look as an edge player, and perhaps there are plans to play him some off the line of scrimmage. A slightly less lauded version of Nolan Smith, McDonald offers excellent athleticism. If the Jets decide to run more multiple sets, including 3-4 looks, McDonald offers interesting options. Still, this is a bit of a strange pick for fit. B-

Joe Tippmann NFL Draft photo
The Jets needed a Center and they added Tippman who plays a scheme versatile game and is "Day One" ready to plug and play. Aaron Rodgers is not a young man and improving his pass protection is critical. Tippman can fill an immediate and urgent need.

JETS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
