New England Patriots vs. New York Jets
The games between these two AFC East rivals are some of the best games each season. The Patriots have had more success for a while now but an awesome draft could put the Jets right back in it.
Vote below and tell us in the comments which of these teams helped themselves more in this year’s NFL Draft.
New England Patriots Draft Highlights
The Patriots scored one of the premiere interior pass rushers in the draft by taking DT Dominique Easley.
Then they made the surprise selection of small-school QB Jimmy Garoppolo in the second round. Is he now the heir-apparent to Tom Brady?
RB James White will look to fill the void left by the departure of LeGarrette Blount, while C Bryan Stork and OT Cameron Fleming add depth to the offensive line.
New York Jets Draft Highlights
The Jets first pick, hard-hitting S Calvin Pryor, seems like a perfect fit for Rex Ryan's defense. The Jets showed they are serious about their defense by adding CBs Dexter McDougle and Brandon Dixon as well.
The best addition to the offense is pass-catching sensation TE Jace Amaro, who combined with Jalen Saunders, Shaq Evans and Quincy Enunwa should help QB Geno Smith.
