The team announced Wednesday that he’ll become only the seventh player in franchise history to be selected for the all-rookie team — joining then-Jets prospects Eddie Pasquale (2011-12), Brenden Kichton (2013-14), Sami Niku (2017-18) and Mason Appleton (2017-18), as well as Kevin Bieksa and Eddie Lack from the previous incarnation of the club.
