Jets placed CB Dexter McDougle (torn left ACL) on injured reserve, ending his season.
He was the 80th overall pick in May's draft. The good news is McDougle suffered the year-ending injury in training camp, and should be ready for Week 1 next season. The bad news is his loss is a huge blow to New York's secondary depth, and McDougle will now enter his sophomore campaign with a litany of injury red flags after battling a shoulder problem last season at Maryland.

Jets signed No. 80 overall CB Dexter McDougle to a four-year contract.

A quick-twitch mover with a physical playing style but short arms (30 5/8") and sub-optimal height (5-foot-10), McDougle's size limitations may relegate him to the slot for Gang Green. He does offer upside to develop into a quality nickel back or starter. McDougle will likely focus on special teams as a rookie, but his sheer athletic tools give him a chance for more sooner rather than later.

Jets selected Maryland CB Dexter McDougle with the No. 80 overall pick in the 2014 NFL draft.

McDougle (5-foot-9 3/4, 196) lasted only three games as a senior before a year-ending shoulder injury, which should be healed by camp. He finished college with 27 starts and six interceptions. McDougle ran 4.47 at the Terrapins' Pro Day, adding a 37-inch vertical and 10-foot-2 broad jump. A quick-twitch mover with a physical playing style but short arms (30 5/8") and sub-optimal height, McDougle's size limitations may relegate him to mostly slot corner in the pros. He does offer upside to develop into a quality nickel back or starter. McDougle will likely focus on special teams with Gang Green as a rookie, but his sheer athletic tools give him a chance for more sooner rather than later.
