Breaking: Jets draft Florida Edge defender Jabari Zuniga with the 79th pick

The Jets decided to address another need with their third pick of the day.

Last year, they drafted a Florida edge defender in Jachai Polite. That didn't go so well, but they'll hope for better luck with Jabari Zuniga.

He didn't put up massive sack numbers in college with 18.5 in four years, but he had some good games in a 2019 season that saw him limited to six appearances due to a high ankle sprain. Whether he has the flexibility to be a constant threat off the edge remains to be seen but he has potential.

Center Matt Hennessy, who had been linked to the Jets throughtout the pre-draft process, had been picked up by the Falcons at 78.

The Jets have one pick later on today at 101 and four more scheduled for tomorrow.

We'll have more analysis on this tomorrow, but let us have your initial reaction in the comments section.
