7. New York Jets (via Seattle Seahawks): DeMarvin Leal, EDGE, Texas A&M
They got someone who can cover the opponent’s top receiver and take the ball away at times in Derek Stingley. Now, the New York Jets are back on the clock just a few picks later, thanks to their trade with the Seattle Seahawks involving Jamal Adams.
No one could have predicted Seattle would have surrendered a top-10 pick in that trade, but here we are. And New York cashes in by now bringing in a top-tier defensive lineman in DeMarvin Leal.
Listed at 6-foot-4 and 290-pounds, Leal has enough athleticism to win on the edge, which is something the Jets can use more of.
8. New York Giants (via Chicago Bears): Kenyon Green, OL, Texas A&M
Earlier, the New York Giants followed the Jets, so why not do it again? After the Jets grab their defensive end — just two picks after their roommates did ‚— the Giants are back on the clock and bring in Kenyon Green from Texas A&M.
Green is an ideal selection for the G-Men due to his versatility. Their offensive line is a mess despite Dave Gettleman promising to fix it and Green can fill in as either a guard or tackle. That will allow them a lot of flexibility in bringing players in to try and become a cohesive unit once again.
