The Jets added an edge rusher in the first round of the NFL Draft and then another Saturday in the fourth round.
Gang Green selected Texas A&M edge rusher Micheal Clemons as the No. 117 overall.
Clemons had 11 tackles for loss and seven sacks for the Aggies in 2021.
There are some concerns with Clemons. He will be 25 before he plays an NFL game. He had multiple injuries in college that caused him to miss the 2018 season and much of the 2020 season.

In August, he was arrested and charged with carrying a gun, failing to identify himself/providing false information, possessing less than two ounces of marijuana and driving with an invalid driver’s license. He had been arrested three months earlier in May for driving with an invalid driver’s license.
