Jets Trade Compensatory Pick to Bucs

Jets Trade Compensatory Pick to Bucs

But this is the first year the National Football League has allowed the trading of compensatories, and that's what the Jets did, trading it to Tampa Bay for two Buccaneers selections.

The Jets made a big decision when selecting tight end Jordan Leggett out of Clemson to finally infuse some quality talent to a position that they probably forgot about over the past few years. A day later, they gave that 160th pick (a fifth-rounder) and No. 224 (a seventh-rounder) to the Browns in exchange for No. 181 (a fifth-rounder) and No. 188 (a sixth-rounder).

After going safety first in the opening two rounds, NY made a run on offensive playmakers.

Stewart joins fellow SEC West rep Jamal Adams of the LSU Tigers as players drafted by the Jets this year as well as Utah Utes DB Marcus Williams. Leggett also completed his Clemson's career the leader in receptions, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns by a tight end.

And the Jets went big - just the way Bowles likes his cornerbacks. He's coming off a torn ACL which limited him to four games last season, but he said he's "about 75 percent healthy" and expects to be fully healthy by training camp.

"They've got size, they've got height, weight and speed, and we'll see how they fit in with the group", Bowles said.

Tom Pelissero of United States of America today piggy backed on a tweet from Ian Rapoport that said the Jets were shopping former first round pick Sheldon Richardson, to add that safety Calvin Pryor is on the block as well.
