2015 NFL Draft: New York Jets land DL Leonard Williams with 6th overall pick
The New York Jets are performing a dramatic makeover on their offense, as they have traded for wide receiver Brandon Marshall and drafted Ohio State wide receiver Devin Smith in the second round.
The Jets continued to rebuild their offense by making a gutsy decision to trade up for Baylor quarterback Bryce Petty, who was considered by many to be a Day 2 or even possibly a Day 1 prospect.
He fell to the fourth round though, and the Jets are clearly wanting to bring in competition for struggling quarterback Geno Smith as they only traded up one pick. Other teams were rumored to have been planning to trade up too though.
Petty was a legitimate Heisman Trophy contender in his two seasons as a starter at Baylor, as he threw 61 touchdown passes and 10 interceptions in that span while rushing for 20 touchdowns.
Petty also led Baylor to a 22-4 record as a starter, although they were unable to win a bowl game with him at the helm.
The Jets have had an excellent draft so far, as they managed to snag USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams with the sixth overall pick despite him being arguably the top overall player in the draft.
They had previously traded their third-round pick to the Houston Texans, who drafted Arizona State wide receiver Jaelen Strong.
The Jets had already drafted Smith, who is expected to be a deep threat in the NFL after averaging 28.2 yards per catch and scoring 12 touchdowns in his senior season at Ohio State, who most recently won the national championship.
Petty will have to hush critics who say that he cannot thrive outside Baylor’s quarterback-friendly offense, but he may see the field sooner than expected if Geno Smith does not improve with the Jets’ upgraded receiving corps.
