FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - After adding to their already-formidable defensive line in the first round, the New York Jets head into the second day of the NFL draft with plenty of options.

The Jets have the fifth pick in the second round (No. 37 overall) and the sixth selection (No. 70) in the third Friday.

New York drafted USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams with the No. 6 overall pick Thursday night. Williams will team with fellow first-rounders Muhammad Wilkerson (2011) and Sheldon Richardson (2013) on coach Todd Bowles’ D-line that also includes nose tackle Damon Harrison.

New York could look to add depth at linebacker, offensive line or take one of the top remaining quarterbacks - UCLA’s Brett Hundley or Baylor’s Bryce Petty - to compete with Geno Smith, Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Simms.
