Jets took a chance, but Kiper likes class

Mel Kiper Jr. doesn't think taking Christian Hackenberg in the second round was that much of a reach for the Jets. Kiper was impressed with some of New York's other choices. NFL draft grades (Insider)

Jets' best pick: Darron Lee

The outside linebacker from Ohio State, drafted with the No. 20 overall pick, offers rare athleticism. Lee has the ability to cover both running backs and tight ends one-on-one. Todd McShay (Insider)

Terron Beckham, a cousin of Giants star Odell Beckham, Jr, will attend the Jets' rookie minicamp next weekend on a non-roster tryout basis, according to his agent, Mike Celli. Beckham (5-11, 223) is a chiseled running back who has become in Internet sensation. Beckham, who didn't play college ball, reportedly ran a 4.47 40 in a recent pro day before a handful of scouts. The Jets spoke to Celli several times in recent days and extended the invitation.

Aussie punters for Jets: sign Hackett, pick Edwards

The New York Jets added two punters from Australia to their roster Saturday by drafting Lachlan Edwards in the seventh round and signing rookie free agent Tom Hackett.

Rich Cimini ESPN Staff Writer 

It's an Aussie invasion: The Jets signed Utah punter Tom Hackett as an undrafted free agent. He will compete against fellow countryman Lac Edwards, a seventh round pick from Sam Houston State. Should be an interesting battle, mate.

Punter Lac Edwards, drafted by the Jets in the seventh round, grew up in Australia. After high school, he took a year off from school, worked for a brick layer and played Australian football. He punted an American football for the first time in 2012. He put together a highlight film, sent it to American universities and landed at Sam Houston State.

Jets are on the clock in the seventh round. Could they pick a punter?

Jets GM Mike Maccagnan, explaining why he traded a 2017 fourth-round pick to take OT Brandon Shell in the fifth, said he was willing to part with the pick because he expects compensatory picks in '17. That softens the blow. He said they liked Shell so much they almost picked him in the fourth. "We thought the player has a lot of ability and potential," he said.
