The Jets have picked a defensive player with their last three first-round draft choices. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper suspects they’ll do it again this year with the ninth overall pick.
“I still think the front seven on the defensive side is the way to go,” Kiper said Wednesday on a media conference call.
