Mehta’s Top 20 Jets Countdown: No. 4 Marcus Maye has all the tools to be a defensive force

Mike Maccagnan had whiffed on his second-round picks in each of his first two drafts (Devin Smith and Christian Hackenberg) before the third time became a charm with Maye, who has the makings of being a quality player for a long time. Maye, who hit the ground running with splash plays in training camp, and Jamal Adams formed a solid 1-2 rookie safety punch to severely upgrade an area of weakness. Maye was far from perfect, but he limited his growing pains in a solid rookie campaign that included 79 tackles (58 solo), two interceptions and a forced fumble in 16 starts. He was statistically consistent week in and week out. The rookie had seven combined tackles in five games and five or six tackles in five others. Maye and Adams played a remarkable 95 percent of the team’s defensive snaps.
