The New York Jets selected Charone Peake in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 241st overall.
Peake is a former top recruit who has good size and athleticism, but he dealt with a lot of injuries at Clemson and struggled to earn targets his whole career. If not for lead wideout Mike Williams getting hurt and freshman Deon Cain's various disciplinary issues, Peake might have been as low as fourth on the Clemson depth chart for all of 2015.
The New York Jets selected Edwards in the seventh round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 235th overall.
Edwards isn't guaranteed the punter job with the Jets, but as the only punter currently on the roster, he's certainly a leading candidate.
The New York Jets selected Shell in the fifth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 158th overall.
Shell was a tackle at South Carolina but might need to move to guard in the NFL. He's a huge figure (6-foot-5, 324 pounds) with imposing run-blocking potential.
The New York Jets selected Juston Burris in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft, 118th overall.
Burris a big corner who might not have the athleticism to run alongside the league's faster receivers, but college quarterbacks generally declined to throw his way at North Carolina State. The Jets will presumably count on Burris to provide some push in press coverage.
Geno Smith will enter OTAs atop the quarterback depth chart, head coach Todd Bowles said Saturday. "Without [Ryan Fitzpatrick] being on the team right now, Geno's first-team and then we'll go from there," Bowles said. "Obviously we're still working on a deal if we can get Fitzpatrick back. So until that's addressed and we take care of that situation right now, Geno will go into OTAs as a starter."
The New York Jets drafted quarterback Christian Hackenberg in the second round of the draft on Friday, and he'll likely compete for the backup job with Bryce Petty if the Jets are unable to bring Fitzpatrick back. Smith has failed to show any consistent production during his career, and the Jets are clearly still very much interested in bringing Fitzpatrick back, though the two sides continue to be very far apart on money. If Smith does somehow end up starting in Week 1, he'll at least have the best weapons of his career, with Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker on the outside, Matt Forte out of the backfield and a healthy Jace Amaro.
