FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets head into the final day of the NFL draft with five picks and plenty of options.

They further strengthened their defensive line on Day 1 by taking Southern California’s Leonard Williams sixth overall, and then added a speedy wide receiver - Ohio State’s Devin Smith - and a pass rusher - Louisville’s Lorenzo Mauldin - during the second and third rounds, respectively, Friday night.

Barring any deals, New York has the fifth pick of the fourth round, a fifth-rounder and three seventh-rounders Saturday.

The Jets could add one of the top remaining quarterbacks - UCLA’s Brett Hundley or Baylor’s Bryce Petty - to compete with Geno Smith and Ryan Fitzpatrick. New York could also look at depth on the offensive line and a pass-catching running back.
