The NY Jets announced that they have signed another draft pick. This time it was their third-round selection, edge rusher Jachai Polite from Florida.

Polite, who was taken with 68th overall selection, racked up 15.5 sacks and 26.tackles for loss while playing collegiately at Florida. The 6’3”, 258-pound Polite broke out in 2018, recording 11 sacks and his six forced fumbles led the FBS and tied a school record.

Listed as a defensive end, Polite had a challenging spring and was limited by a nagging hamstring during the pre-draft process. He is considered an explosive rusher with good bend and the Jets liked the upside of the 21-year-old.
