Round 1, Pick 16: Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
Overall Prospect Rank: No. 13
Coples is a very talented all-around defensive end with a great combination of size and athleticism. He is coming off of a disappointing senior season, but he has the potential to be a dominant player at the line of scrimmage. He has the size and strength to project well to lining up as a defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. When he is on his game, he is tough to block.
Round 2, Pick 43: Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
Overall Prospect Rank: No. 31
Hill has the potential to be an elite deep threat receiver. He possesses an outstanding combination of size, athleticism and catching ability, giving him the potential to be a superstar.
He only had 28 receptions in his junior season, but averaged nearly 30 yards per reception. He separates well from defenders downfield and will use his size to his advantage. He lacks polish as a route-runner, but could be a star if he lives up to his potential.
Round 3, Pick 77: Demario Davis, ILB, Arkansas State
Overall Prospect Rank: No. 203
Davis is undersized and was not tremendously productive at Arkansas State, but he has tremendous athletic potential. Davis is a great all-around athlete who is a rangy playmaker, and he should find a way to get on the field and be a contributor.
He is not a great fit to play in a 3-4 defense, but he should be able to be a factor in the rotation at inside linebacker and be a special teams standout.
Round 6, Pick 187: Josh Bush, FS/CB, Wake Forest
Overall Prospect Rank: Not in Top 400
Bush is a versatile, athletic defensive back. He converted to free safety during his senior season, the position he is best suited to play, but his cornerback experience helps him. He has good ball skills but needs to improve as a tackler. Bush is likely to spend most of his time as an NFL player on special teams, but he can provide secondary depth.
Round 6, Pick 202 (compensatory selection): Terrance Ganaway, RB, Baylor
Overall Prospect Rank: No. 163
Ganaway is a very solid between-the-tackles runner who had a very productive senior season. He is a big and powerful back, but he is not fast for an NFL running back. He is not particularly explosive, but he should be an effective short-yardage and goal-line back.
Round 6, Pick 203 (compensatory selection): Robert T. Griffin, G, Baylor
Overall Prospect Rank: Not in Top 400
Did the Jets think this Robert Griffin was related to the other Robert Griffin from Baylor, as in the quarterback who was selected No. 2 overall? Griffin is a massive guard, but he is not strong for his size. He is not athletic, was heavily penalized during his time at Baylor and his overall game as a NFL guard prospect is substandard.
Round 7, Pick 242 (compensatory selection): Antonio Allen, SS, South Carolina
Overall Prospect Rank: No. 75
There is nothing spectacular about Allen’s game, but he is well-rounded. He is a solid cover safety with good ball skills, and he is an effective tackler. He was a productive player in the SEC, and he can be a playmaker at the safety position for the Jets.
Allen is not a great athlete, but he is more than adequate. He could develop into a starting-caliber strong safety.
Round 7, Pick 244 (compensatory selection): Jordan White, WR, Western Michigan
Overall Prospect Rank: No. 146
White’s greatest asset is that he is a very polished receiver. He was a tremendously productive receiver at Western Michigan; he led the NCAA in receptions and receiving yards last season.
White has terrific hands and good verticality, but speed is a big concern. He is only 6’0’’ and is slow. That said, his consistency and hands should make him a solid possession receiver and No. 4 or No. 5 wideout.
