With the 17th pick in the sixth round of the 2012 NFL Draft, the New York Jets have selected defensive back, Josh Bush, from Wake Forest.

Here's what CBS Sports had to say about Bush in their draft profile:

Strengths: Flexible athlete with good foot quickness and rangy speed to cover a lot of ground. Shows good awareness to watch the eyes of the quarterback, track the ball in the air and go get it. Does a nice job fighting for positioning in coverage, using his body to box-out the receiver. Flashes a tough, competitive drive and gets the most out of his ability. Has versatile experience with experience at both free safety and cornerback - 27 career starts in the secondary. Had a productive senior season, finishing second in the ACC in interceptions with six - totaled 115 return yards on interceptions, averaging almost 20 yards per return. Weaknesses: Bush has only average size and strength, lacking ideal muscle ...

Bush ran a 4.50 40 yard dash at his pro day and recorded a 33.5 inch vertical jump.
