After spending their first four choices on offense this year, the Jets have now selected their third straight defensive player in University of Pittsburgh cornerback Jason Pinnock.
With the last of their three 5th-round picks (No. 175), the #Jets select:

A 6′ cornerback who had three interceptions last season, Pinnock is willing to mix it up with opposing receivers and he’ll look to compete for a starting spot on a defense that, in its current state, is seriously lacking at the cornerback position.
In his time at Pitt, Pinnock intercepted 6 passes in 30 contests to go along with 19 passes defended.
