FULLBACK:Johnny Hector-By far, the best threat the Jets have had in this spot during my time. He played with Freeman McNeil in the 1980s, and could do it all. From 1985-1988, Hector had a nose for the endzone, averaging nearly 9 TDs rushing per season. He also recorded over 1,600 yards receiving out of the backfield. You had to be weary of him every time he was in the game, because he was just as likely to get the ball as Freeman McNeil. The best at this spot by far.

WIDE RECEIVER:Al ToonThis choice was tough. Wayne Chrebet earned a lot of consideration here, but even though Toon’s career ended prematurely due to injury, he edges out Chrebet. For his career, he averaged 64 catches per season versus Chrebet’s 52. Both were great possession receivers, but from observation, Toon was a bit more explosive, so he earns the spot.

WIDE RECEIVER:Wesley WalkerWalker was the best deep threat the Jets have employed in my time, by a lot. He tops the Jets receivers in average yards per catch for his career, with a whopping 19.0 average over his 12 year career. He actually averaged over 20 yards per catch six different times. He was tough to stop, and all of this was done while being blind in one eye. No other choice here.
