Jets go back to secondary in round three

The Jets might have reached in round three of the 2014 Draft as they selected CB Dexter McDougle from Maryland, whom most draft websites expected to be picked somewhere in the sixth round. McDougle, 5'10", 196 lbs, missed most of last season, breaking two of his knuckles in a freak practice injury. He was also excluded for medical reasons from the NFL Scouting Combine.

According to the scouting report, McDougle possesses excellent speed, reads and reacts quickly. He also has good balance, agility and change of direction. Additionally, he's a solid tackler who covers ground with the ball in the air and shows burst to close.

Besides the above mentioned durability concerns, McDougle is a bit short for a modern NFL cornerback. He also lacks strength to jam receivers off the line and occasionally bites on fakes.

McDougle did impress during Maryland's pro day when he ran a 40-yard dash between 4.43 and 4.48 seconds, posted a broad jump of 122 inches and a 37-inch vertical leap.
