Jets’ Jason Pinnock could be a late-round starting cornerback (Film)

New York Jets cornerback Jason Pinnock could be a late-round starter in the NFL—something this franchise needs at the position badly.

After selecting Duke cornerback-safety hybrid Michael Carter II with the 156th pick (fifth round) in the 2021 NFL draft, the New York Jets doubled down by selecting Pittsburgh cornerback Jason Pinnock at No. 175.

Cornerback is a big need for the Jets, so throwing darts at the board late in the draft was a great idea. After all, offense was honed in on early and often.
