The Jets own the third pick in this year's draft, their highest since 1996. How have they drafted in the first round over the past five years?

2017: Safety Jamal Adams, No. 6

It's too early to tell how Adams' career will pan out, but the signs so far have been promising. He started every game in his rookie year as the Jets' secondary definitely played better than it had in 2016. On the field, Adams had his ups and downs, but he showed flashes of brilliance in a versatile role. Off the field, he's played a big part in the ongoing culture change that has galvanized the team and has also been a useful tool in player recruitment.

The Jets have seen Sheldon Richardon, Damon Harrison, and Quinton Coples depart within the past few seasons. With the departure of Muhammad Wilkerson thought to be imminent, they suddenly find themselves in a position where they lack depth on the defensive interior.

In addition, a potentially promising pipeline of young depth hasn't really materialized. Deon Simon and Claude Pelon couldn't crack the rotation, and spent most of the year on the practice squad, while Lawrence Thomas became a full back. Leonard Williams will be back, but his 2017 season was arguably just as disappointing as Wilkerson's, and he might find that teams can more readily gameplan around him if he's not surrounded with the same kind of talent...

Welcome to BGA Extra, where I draw a line under the previous weekend's game by responding to your questions from BGA during the week which you can read here. After the jump, I respond to your questions about the game against the Bills.

Jeff (via e-mail): Can you post a video of the "near" miracle catch with 17 seconds left? Really trying to see it again, have not been able to find it. Need to torture myself and see just how close we really were to a miracle ending. 

Here's a link if you're still feeling masochistic.

The Miami Dolphins have claimed Quinton Coples off waivers.

The former first-round draft pick was cut by the Jets on Monday.

This season for the Jets, the 25-year-old Coples had appeared in 10 games (two starts) while failing to record a sack.

The Jets play the Dolphins on Sunday.

The Jets will exercise the fifth-year option on?Quinton Coples rookie contract (Mehta, April 11).

Coples, 24, was taken with the 16th overall pick in the 2012 draft by the Jets. He played defensive end at the University of North Carolina?and in his rookie season. Since then he has made the transition to the outside linebacker position for the past two years. Through his first three seasons he has recorded just 16 1/2 sacks.

His fifth year option salary, which will be worth $7.8 million, is determined by the average salaries of the 25 highest-paid players at his position, not including the two highest-paid players.

New York Jets linebacker Quinton Coples has won his appeal for his hit on Tennessee's Jake Locker. ?The week after the Titans game, Coples was fined $7,875 for unnecessary roughness and was surprised by the fine since there was no flag on the play.

While Locker was injured on the play in question, neither Coples or Wilkerson's hits seemed worthy of fining. ?Still, we expected the league to take the latitude it did when it levied the fines ... it's been their prerogative to uphold their new safety conscious mandates in the last few years.

So, it's good to see that the fines for Wilkerson and now Coples were removed as they were both unwarranted. ?Locker's injury came on a bang-bang play that couldn't have been prevented and in which both Jets attempted to pull up on before hitting Locker.

It was good for the Jets to open the season with a dominating win. The Bills, despite Sunday's 48-28 loss, are a good measuring stick for where the Jets stand as they are just in the very start of their hunt for a postseason bid.

Here's some of what?occurred?to us in the aftermath of Week One:

1) ?Ground and pound ain't dead yet -- Don't despair at the notion that the Jets only gained 118 yards on 36 carries (a 3.3 YPC average) just yet. ?The Bills were selling out against the run much of the game and that left players like Stephen Hill in single coverage. ?Hill was able to get open in multiple ways, be it with his speed or physicality. ?Now starts the game of NFL cat-and-mouse. ?Teams will start to dial back the eight-in-the-box stuff and that will only help the Jets running game benefit from the softer defensive front they'll see.
