What Ohio State TE Jeremy Ruckert Brings to the New York Jets

The Jets didn’t necessarily need to pick a tight end in this year’s draft after addressing the position by signing two veterans in free agency.

Nonetheless, when Jets general manager Joe Douglas found himself on the clock in the third round on Friday night, he elected to take Ohio State’s Jeremy Ruckert with the 101st selection of the 2022 NFL Draft. 

“He’s a really tough-minded individual, a great teammate,” Douglas told reporters after making the pick. “He’s a guy that’s willing to sacrifice for the team. He’s a dynamic athlete, he’s a dynamic weapon in the pass game. He wasn’t always the number one option at Ohio State, but he was a guy that was willing to do the dirty work to help his teammates as a blocker.”
