With their final pick of Night 2 of the 2022 NFL Draft on Friday, the Jets selected Ohio State tight end Jeremy Ruckert with the 101st overall pick.
That gives the Jets two Buckeyes through the first three rounds, with Ruckert, a Long Island native, joining wide receiver and first-round pick Garrett Wilson on Robert Saleh’s roster next season.
Though he was primarily a blocker in his four years at Ohio State, the 6-foot-5, 250-pound Ruckert did have 26 catches for 309 receiving yards and three touchdowns last season.
His selection also gives the Jets another offensive piece. During the second round, the Jets selected Iowa State running back Breece Hall with the 36th overall pick.
Saturday, the Jets will have two more picks, at Nos. 111 and 117.
