Drafting Sam Darnold with the third overall pick left the Jets with five quarterbacks on their 90-man roster, but that number is set to drop to four on Thursday.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports that Latrell Sprewell Youth jersey the Jets will release Bryce Petty. The move will leave Darnold, Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater and Christian Hackenberg on the quarterback depth chart.
Authentic Youth Jonathan Drouin Jersey There was a report during the draft that the Jets were taking calls about Petty, although it seems odd that the team would have chosen to release him rather than get even a conditional draft pick in exchange for moving him off the roster.
Saban is heavily involved in the process personally with his own player evaluations followed by home visits to potential signees. He travels nationally rather than just regionally to land blue-chip players like Fitzpatrick (New Jersey), as well as current and former NFL players such as Indianapolis center Ryan Kelly (Ohio), Washington defensive end Jonathan Allen (Maryland) and ex-Seattle defensive lineman Jesse Williams (Arizona). The usually high-strung Saban will even dance if it helps him land a five-star prospect.
Authentic Youth Russell Okung Jersey Philadelphia’s draft class is made up of second-round tight end Dallas Goedert, fourth-round cornerback Avonte Maddox, fourth-round defensive end Josh Sweat, sixth-round tackle Matt Pryor and seventh-round tackle Jordan Mailata.
Goedert was a prolific receiver at South Dakota State and figures to compete for a similar role alongside Zach Ertz in the Eagles offense. Maddox had a lot of starting experience at Pitt, which should help an Eagles team working to replace Patrick Robinson, and Sweat showed pass rushing potential at Florida State that likely would have led him to get picked earlier if not for knee concerns. Pryor and Mailata, who is making the move from rugby, will try for reserve or developmental roles.
Chicago concluded its near-complete overhaul of the wide receiver position by selecting Miller in the second round on Friday. The Memphis product is 5-foot-11, 201 pounds, isn’t particularly fast and has had struggles with drops (eight last year). On the plus side, he’s a polished route runner with good quickness and post-catch ability. Miller lined up in the slot 38 percent of the time last season and also helped out as a ball carrier and returner.
