Ravens picking Shaun Wade might be nightmare scenario for Steelers by John Buhler.
The New York Jets have had a great 2021 draft, now consisting of 2 gamers out of the very same conference with the very same name.
The New York Jets did as anticipated and prepared BYU quarterback Zach Wilson 2nd overall on Thursday night, then they traded as much as No. 14 to get USC guard/tackle Alijah Vera-Tucker. Early in the second round, with the 34th overall pick, they included Ole Miss pass receiver Elijah Moore.
The trade up in the preliminary with the Minnesota Vikings cost the Jets third-round picks, so they were done till Day 3 on Saturday.
With the 107th overall choice, in the 4th round, the Jets took North Carolina running back Michael Carter. The former Tar Heel appears like a steal there, and the Jets have an opening for somebody to take the lead role in their backfield. With pick No. 146, in the fifth round, the Jets shifted to defense as they chose Auburn security Jamien Sherwood.
8 picks after that, at No. 154 total, the Jets took another secondary gamer with the choice of Duke defensive back Michael Carter II.
Yes, the Jets prepared two guys with the same name.
The 2 Michael Carters, with one fortunately designated as a “2nd” to further assist distinguish them, will both be Jets. Of course the fact they play various positions on various sides of the ball will help fans understand which one is which. But they both came out of the ACC, from rival schools in North Carolina and Duke.
Michael Carter II (the DB) stated he and the other Michael Carter (the RB) have fulfilled, bet and trained with each other.
” Great dude, cool dude.” #Jets.

One Michael Carter, the running back, has a better possibility to make a substantial role for the Jets as a novice. The other might have the ability to stick immediately as a backup and special teamer, with the possibility to earn a real role on the defense.
