After selecting Darron Lee and Christian Hackenberg, the New York Jets turn their attention to Georgia Bulldogs linebacker Jordan Jenkins with their No. 83 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Jenkins is the second Georgia player to be drafted this year, joining first rounder Leonard Floyd who was picked by Chicago with the No. 11 overall pick.

The 'Dawgs now have two consecutive years in which a player was taken in the third round after Chris Conley was picked by the Kansas City Chiefs in last year's third round with pick No. 76.

Best of luck to Jenkins with the Jets!
