Jets head into draft's final day with 5 picks

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) The New York Jets head into the final day of the NFL draft with five picks and plenty of options.

They further strengthened their defensive line on Day 1 by taking Southern California's Leonard Williams sixth overall, and then added a speedy wide receiver - Ohio State's Devin Smith - and a pass rusher - Louisville's Lorenzo Mauldin - during the second and third rounds, respectively, Friday night.

Barring any deals, New York has the fifth pick of the fourth round, a fifth-rounder and three seventh-rounders Saturday.

The Jets could add one of the top remaining quarterbacks - UCLA's Brett Hundley or Baylor's Bryce Petty - to compete with Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick. New York could also look at depth on the offensive line and a pass-catching running back.
