NFL DRAFT 2014: Jets use all 9 picks on final day of draft, grab 3 WRs and QB Tajh Boyd

The New York Jets loaded up on wide receivers on the final day of the NFL draft, taking Oklahoma's Jalen Saunders, UCLA's Shaquelle Evans and Nebraska's Quincy Enunwa.

They also added another quarterback to the mix Saturday, selecting Clemson's Tajh Boyd with the last of their three compensatory picks in the sixth round. While Geno Smith and Michael Vick will compete for the starting job this summer, Boyd will likely go up against Matt Simms for the No. 3 spot.

New York entered the final day with a league-high nine picks and used them all.

Among the Jets' other selections were Furman offensive lineman Dakota Dozier, Iowa State linebacker Jeremiah George, Northwest Missouri State cornerback Brandon Dixon, Louisiana Tech defensive end IK Enemkpali and Utah linebacker Trevor Reilly.
