Jets pick LSU CB Jarrick Bernard-Converse

Jarrick Bernard-Converse has found a home in New York.

The Jets selected the LSU corner in the sixth round of the NFL draft on Saturday. Bernard-Converse transferred to LSU after four years at Oklahoma State. He was all-conference in 2021 and impressed in Baton Rouge last year.

He’s a tall and physical corner that also played safety last year.

His biggest moment as a Tiger came against Alabama: He intercepted Bryce Young on the opening drive to shift momentum in LSU’s favor.

LSU needed corners entering last year and Bernard-Converse proved a valuable asset from the portal. Bernard-Converse was the sixth LSU player drafted this weekend and the fifth on Saturday.

Bernard-Converse benefited from a strong draft process that saw him play in the Hula Bowl and impress at LSU pro day.

He’ll join a good secondary that features Sauce Gardner and D.J. Reed. It’s unlikely he’ll get a chance to start early in his career, but he has the talent to battle for time down the road.
