Jets Select Iowa State Edge Will McDonald with the 15th Pick || Initial Thoughts
The Jets add to the defensive line.
The New York Jets selected Iowa State Edge Will McDonald with the 15th overall pick.
A bit of a surprise to Jets fans but something the Jets are happy about as the football world saw them celebrated the pick on television.
"McDonald is an outstanding athlete who caused a lot of disruption over the past three seasons for the Cyclones’ defense. He possesses the size and explosion to be used as an edge rusher in a 3-4 alignment, but, at the same time, McDonald has enough athleticism to play in space. McDonald comes with great upside, but he’ll need proper coaching and development to fully complete his game." - Pro Football Network
The Jets were indeed getting some trade interest for the pick but general manager Joe Douglas decided McDonal was too good to pass up.
