After a 4-13 season, the Jets came into Thursday night’s draft with plenty of needs to address on their roster and they chose to help out their 32nd-ranked defense with the fourth overall pick.

Cincinnati cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner was the Jets’ choice with the first of their two first-round picks. He is the fourth straight defensive player off the board to start the draft.

Gardner was a consensus All-America while helping the Bearcats make it to the college football playoffs last season. He should walk into a starting job in a very thin Jets secondary and head coach Robert Saleh will be hoping that he becomes a foundation piece for a major turnaround during the 2022 season.

The Jets are set to add another piece a short time from now. They hold the No. 10 pick as a result of trading safety Jamal Adams to the Seahawks, so should be getting a new teammate in the near future.

    His mouth is a great replacement for Jamal Adams.

    Another busted Jetsie top 10 pick. Ego the size of California. All you had to do was read his pre draft comments and you run away in the other direction from this guy.

    Hilarious stuff.

  2. What was wrong with his ore-draft comments? He provided a candid assessment of his resume. He has been unbelievably good for three years in college. There is zero reason to expect he’ll fail in the NFL.
