The New York Jets recently traded 2014 first-round pick Calvin Pryor, and one reason was they like rookie Jamal Adams. And Adams has done his part to impress during OTAs.

Adams, taken sixth overall out of LSU, seems all but certain to start this fall, and his running mate at safety could be a former SEC rival. The Jets took Florida’s Marcus Maye in the second round, and Adams and Maye have taken first-team reps together at OTAs.
The Jets’ pass defense was second-worst in the AFC last season, ahead of only Cleveland’s. New York surrendered 3,898 yards and 30 TDs and had just eight interceptions. The picks total was tied for second-lowest in the league.
