New York Giants running back Ezekiel Elliott is not a household name in the NFL, but he was a star of the New York City Giants’ Pro Day on Friday.
Elliott ran the 40-yard dash in 4.43 seconds, which is a time that most athletes would be able to beat.
He also ran the broad jump, the vertical jump and the 3-cone drill in the 20-yard shuttle.
The Jets are expected to take a wide receiver early in the first round, which would be a major coup for the team.
Elliott was the best player on the field, and the Jets were in need of a playmaker.
They will look for more help at wide receiver, as the team had a top-five pass-catcher class in 2016, but they have a number of players who need to improve.
The draft order in round one is as follows:First-rounder: Ezekiel Elliott, Ohio StateThe second-rounder is wide receiver Laquon Treadwell, who had 1,923 yards and 24 touchdowns as a junior.
The Jets need help at that position, which could be a position that falls to Treadmeth.
The third-rounder was tight end Jake Butt, who caught 55 passes for 634 yards and seven touchdowns last season.
The fourth-rounder, cornerback Darrelle Revis, was among the top five players in the draft.
The fifth-rounder and sixth-rounder are offensive lineman Anthony Castonzo, a 6-foot-4, 285-pound lineman who played in three NFL games last season with the Minnesota Vikings.
He was one of the best pass-blocking offensive linemen in the country, and he is a huge talent.
The seventh-rounder could be an outside linebacker, and if the team does not take a quarterback, they could select a quarterback in the third round.
The ninth-rounder will likely be a cornerback.
The 10th-rounder may be a defensive tackle, or he could go to a linebacker in the second or third round, depending on how much of a need there is.
The 11th-round pick will likely have a cornerback, who is likely a linebacker.
The 12th- and 13th-and-14th- round picks are expected be cornerbacks, and it’s possible the Jets could use a quarterback early in this draft.
