With several key areas within the team requiring an injection of quality and depth, it’s hard to see the Jets addressing the situation at WR until after the first two rounds (addition of pass rush, safety and RT spring to mind).
Throw into the equation the possibly return of fan favourite Braylon Edwards, should his knee check out in May. This could also prove to be a cap friendly move.
Tommy Streeter 6ft 5” 219lbs Miami
Passes a genuine Red Zone threat due to his size and leaping ability, has the speed to stretch the field, strong blocker, goes after the ball at its highest point, raw talent, and needs to improve his mental strength. During 2011 Streeter had 46 receptions for 811 yards, scoring 8 TDS.
T.Y Hilton 5ft 10” 183lbs Florida International
Straight line sped is extremely impressive, agile, has the ability to stop and go on a dime, up to full speed quickly, has great vision, versatile – has featured as kick returner. Needs to bulk up. During 2011 59 receptions for 848 yards scoring 5 TDS.
Nick Toon 6ft 2” 215lbs Wisconsin
Son of Jets all pro WR Al Toon, passes great hands, hardly ever the drops the ball. Blocks well, very polished in his running of routes, lacks initial burst, and has some injury concerns. During 2011 64 receptions for 926 yards scoring 10 TDS.
Marvin McNutt 6ft 3” 216lbs Iowa
Very strong, able to gain those important extra yards after initial contact, breathtaking catches, constantly made big plays throughout college, quick. Not explosive off the line, has struggled against the more physical corner backs. During 2011 53 receptions for 861 yards scoring 8 TDS.
Dwight Jones 6ft 3” 230 lbs North Carolina
Great athleticism, physical, gains yards after initial contact, very effective blocker, sells his route, fakes well, tendency to catch balls into the body rather than go after the ball which leads to the odd dropped pass, raw talent that needs coaching. During 2011 62 receptions for 946 yards scoring 4 TDS.
Having watched plenty of tape, read numerous scouting reports these last few weeks I really don't feel the need to address the WRposition until the latter rounds due to the more important team needs and the abundance of talent is glaringly obvious, of which I've barely scratched the surface of, with the above mentioned. As always I'd loveyour feedback on the above mentioned or any potential late round stars I’ve missed.
