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

They filled a few needs during the first two days, taking safety Calvin Pryor in the first round Thursday, tight end Jace Amaro in the second round Friday and cornerback Dexter McDougle in the third. General manager John Idzik said late Friday night that having nine picks in the last four rounds Saturday is nice because it gives the team some maneuverability.

Their first selection - barring a trade - comes with the fourth pick in the fourth round. They have another pick 11 spots later.

New York could try to add a wide receiver, outside linebacker, another cornerback, offensive line depth and perhaps a quarterback in the later rounds.
