Other than moving up a couple of slots in the draft on the final day of the 2017 season to sixth overall, the Jets didn’t have a whole lot to be happy about. As usual, the folks at profootballfocus.com released a snap shot of the best and worst performers for Gang Green, and rookie Jamal Adams may have played his best game as a pro.
Spending time supporting the run and covering all-world tight end Rob Gronkowski, Adams played a big role in holding the big tight end without a catch for the first time in his career, earning an overall grade of 89.1.
