It wasn't a banner year for the Jets in terms of the their rookie picks in 2019.
Still, Pro Football Focus didn't rank the newest Jets players last season that badly, slotting the group in as the 20th best rookie class in the NFL last season.
That ranked as the best rookie class in the AFC East, at least.
Here's how PFF explains their breakdown of the Jets:
"The Jets' first three picks underwhelmed, to put it kindly. Neither defensive tackle Quinnen Williams (67.5 overall grade) nor offensive tackle Chuma Edoga (48.9) looked like impact starters as rookies, and pass-rusher Jachai Polite didn't even make the team out of training camp. The Jets were helped by the play of a few late-round selections and undrafted players, such as defensive end Kyle Phillips, who brought up their ranking."
Of the lot, it was actually the Jets' final draft pick, cornerback Blessuan Austin from Rutgers, that was named the Jets' "best value pick."
Polite was far and away the biggest disappointment for the Jets, but Williams was up there. However, he does have plenty of potential for improvement, too. In 13 games played, he was often injured, playing only 46 percent of the team's defensive snaps while only notching 2.5 sacks and six QB hits.
But as mentioned, the Jets' later picks such as Austin helped their rookie class rise in the ratings. The Jets outranked the Bills (22nd), Patriots (27th) and Dolphins (28th) in terms of their divisional rivals.
