NEW YORK -

The New York Jets are involving the five surviving sons of an EMT killed in the Bronx with their 2017 NFL draft.

Last month, Yadira Arroyo died when someone stole her ambulance and used it to run her over, police say.

Arroyo's sons range in age from 8 to 23 years old. They will announce the Jets' selections on Saturday -- day three of the draft -- from the FDNY EMS Station 26 in the Bronx.

Each son will receive a Jets jersey, in addition to making the picks. MTA Police Officer Daniel McDade, who stopped Arroyo's accused killer, will also be a guest.

The Jets have the sixth pick in the draft’s first round.

The main part of the draft will be held in Philadelphia this year for the first time since 1961.
