The Jets added running back help in the sixth round, selecting Virginia State RB Trenton Cannon with the No. 204 overall pick.
Cannon led the CIAA (Division II) in rushing after posting 1,638 yards on 212 attempts (148.9 per game). He also scored 17 touchdowns, which led his Trojan team.
Cannon adds running back depth to Gang Green, who lost Matt Forte to retirement. He joins a running backs room that is led by Bilal Powell and sophomore Elijah McGuire.
