FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) -- The New York Jets picked a pair of wide receivers in the fourth round of the NFL draft, selecting Oklahoma's Jalen Saunders at No. 104 and UCLA's Shaquelle Evans 11 spots later.

New York entered the final day of the draft Saturday with a league-high nine picks.

The Jets addressed a few key needs during the first three rounds by taking safety Calvin Pryor, tight end Jace Amaro and cornerback Dexter McDougle, but needed depth at wide receiver.

Saunders is a short - 5-foot-9, 165 pounds - but speedy receiver and punt returner who caught 123 passes in two years at Oklahoma after transferring from Fresno State.

The 6-1, 213-pound Evans had nine touchdown catches for UCLA last season. He spent his first college season at Notre Dame.
