Jets Draft Picks 2012: New York Selects Baylor RB Terrance Ganaway In 6th Round

The New York Jets used the first of its two sixth-round compensatory draft picks by selecting Baylor Bears running back Terrance Ganaway at No. 202 overall. Ganaway teamed up with Robert Griffin III to lead a powerful Bears offense last fall in the air and on the ground. Ganaway, 6 feet and 239 pounds, rushed for 1,556 yards on 250 carries and found the end zone for 21 touchdowns. That was a breakout season for Ganaway, who had rushed for 495 yards over the previous two seasons.

Gang Green Nation, our Jets blog, likes this pick:

I think this helps a lot with our ground and pound philosophy. Terrance is an excellent pick and represents good value here in the 6th.

He joins Shonn Greene and Joe McKnight in the Jets backfield, looking to gain whatever playing time he can get.

Here are the other Jets picks thus far:

Quinton Coples, DE, North Carolina
Stephen Hill, WR, Georgia Tech
Demario Davis, LB, Arkansas St.
Josh Bush, S, Wake Forest
