In the third round on Friday, Gang Green selected the 5-foot-10, 196-pounder with the 80th overall pick.

McDougle had spent time at the Jets facility within the past month.

“They were showing all the different ways that they use their cornerbacks,” said McDougle, on 104.5 The Team with Armen and Levack.

“It’s pretty similar to what we did at Maryland. It would definitely be a good transition when they teach me the defense. I’ll catch on real easily.”

Known for his ability as a slot corner, McDougle said that’s not all he brings to the table.

“I don’t care where it is, on special teams or as a slot defender, I’m ready to do whatever I need to do to make everybody happy and showcase my skills. I’m ready to make a huge impact right when I step in there and that’s my mindset.”

“When we watched [McDougle],” said Rex Ryan, on Friday night, “We saw a guy that we think has versatility, can play outside, can play inside as a nickel possibly. Obviously, we like his cover skills.

“We think he’s a complete corner. We think he can tackle. We know he can tackle. He’s aggressive. He’ll challenge you at the line of scrimmage. He’s got good ball skills. And obviously, we feel good [that] he can run. But [he’s] a very aggressive player as well.”

He had also visited the Giants, Raiders, Eagles, Ravens and Redskins. A shoulder injury during the third game of his senior season knocked him out for the rest of the year. McDougle says he has been 100% for a few months now and is ready to go.
