    general manager Chris Ballard followed the pattern through the first two days of the NFL draft.First Quenton Nelson Color Rush Jersey , he moved back to get more picks. Then he invested heavily in the defense. And finally, he gave quarterback Andrew Luck some help.After trading away Indy’s first-round pick on Thursday, Ballard took cornerback Rock Ya-Sin, pass-rushing linebacker Ben Banogu and receiver Parris Campbell with his three second-round picks and closed out Day 2 by taking linebacker Bobby Okereke in the third round.But it wasn’t just the way Ballard drafted that seemed so familiar; it was who he took and what they sounded like, too.“I only played football in high school for two years so I was slightly under recruited, I feel like,” Ya-Sin said. “I just believed in myself. I felt like I had the talent, I had the work ethic and I had great coaches that were pushing me.”Ya-Sin impressed the Colts so much in his only season at the Bowl Subdivision level at Temple that Indy took him No. 34 — the first time they’ve chosen a cornerback that high since selecting Marlin Jackson No. 29 overall in 2005.Last year, Ballard used the first of his four second-round picks, No. 36 overall , on another overlooked prep player who wound up at a Football Championship Subdivision school, linebacker Darius Leonard. He led the NFL in tackles, was named the NFL’s Defensive Rookie of the Year and became a first-team All-Pro in 2018.This time, with a pick acquired from the New York Jets in 2018, Ballard took the 6-foot, 192-pound Ya-Sin, a two-time George state wrestling champion with a reputation for getting physical.Ya-Sin played his first three seasons at Presbyterian College in Clinton, South Carolina — just 100 miles from Leonard’s alma mater, South Carolina State — before finishing 14th in the FBS with 12 passes defensed last season at Temple. Ya-Sin also earned a single-digit jersey, an honor reserved for the Owls’ toughest players.Could Ballard hit it big again with a defense that made major strides in its first season under defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus?“Gil Brandt said something the other night Josh Ferguson Jersey , he said I’ve always loved guys who transfer up,” Ballard said. “Why do they do it?Because they know they’re good. Rock did that, Ben did the same thing. They have a high level of confidence they can play. That was one of the neat things about Darius, he stepped on that Senior Bowl field and he belonged. These kids believe they belong.”In the meantime, Ballard continues to collect talent and picks.After sending the No. 26 overall pick to Washington for two second-rounders Thursday, Ballard dealt the first of the two picks, No. 49 overall, to Cleveland, moved back three spots, found another pass-rusher in the 6-4 T.J. Green Color Rush Jersey , 249-pound Banogu and added a fifth-round pick to his draft weekend arsenal.Banogu played primarily defensive line in college and after transferring from Louisiana-Monroe to TCU in 2016, recorded 8 ½ sacks in each of his final two college seasons. The Colts envision using him all over the field.“I’m ready to do just about anything. With the coaching staff and my football I.Q., I feel like I can pick it up pretty fast and be effective,” he said. “Doing some of the linebacker stuff at the Senior Bowl really opened my eyes to all the neat ways you can kind of create plays and turnovers for your team.”Then Ballard got some help for Luck — taking the 6-1, 208-pound Campbell at No. 59. Campbell and Andy Isabella were tied for the fastest 40-yard dash time (4.31 seconds) among receivers at February’s scouting combine. Campbell caught a single-season school-record at Ohio State with 90 receptions last season. He also had 1,063 yards and 12 TDs.Ballard closed out the day by adding the 6-3, 239-pound Okereke from Stanford. The fifth linebacker selected by the Colts since 2018 recorded 182 tackles and 7½ sacks in his final two college seasons.And the Colts may be just getting started. Ballard has two picks each in the fourth and fifth rounds and six picks total on Saturday.“We’re playing a lot of teams with very good quarterbacks this year and you’ve got to be able to run them down,” Ballard said. That’s always going to be a priority for us.” NEW YORK (AP) — The Jets could be without two of their top playmakers on offense and defense for a while.Safety Marcus Maye has a broken right thumb that could sideline him for a few weeks, and leading wide receiver Quincy Enunwa has a sprained right ankle.Maye was injured in the third quarter of New York’s 42-34 win over Indianapolis on Sunday. He was seen wearing a cast on his right hand after the game.Coach Todd Bowles had no immediate update on Maye’s status during a conference call Monday. Terrence Brooks filled in for Maye opposite Jamal Adams against the Colts. The Jets also have Doug Middleton at the safety spot.Rontez Miles is on the physically unable to perform list and eligible to begin practicing, but Bowles was not sure if the veteran safety would do so this week.Maye’s injury is the latest to a Jets secondary that is already without cornerbacks Trumaine Johnson (quadriceps) and Buster Skrine (concussion). Maye had been sidelined the first three games of the regular season and most of the preseason while recovering from ankle and foot ailments.The Jets also have some concerns at the wide receiver position with Enunwa and Terrelle Pryor (groin) leaving the game against the Colts with injuries.The New York Daily News reported Monday that Enunwa has a high ankle sprain , which would mean he would be out a few weeks.Enunwa has established himself early as Sam Darnold’s favorite target, leading the Jets with 22 receptions and 287 yards receiving with one touchdown. The veteran receiver had just one catch for 9 yards — and was injured on the play in the second quarter when he had the ball knocked out of his hands by Darius Leonard. Al-Quadin Muhammad recovered for the Colts, and Enunwa limped off the field in noticeable pain.Enunwa was seen leaving the stadium wearing a walking boot on his right foot after the game.Bowles had no immediate update on the status of Pryor, who tweaked his groin against the Colts. Pryor had five catches for 57 yards, including a go-ahead 7-yard touchdown in the second quarter.
