Markus Wheaton – WR, Oregon State
A WR that can run the ball out of the backfield and one that excels after the catch is something the Jets are lacking right now and Oregon State’s 6’1 185 pound speedy WR would be just the player to fill that void. Oregon State benefited greatly from Wheaton’s YAC abilities as the loved to get him the ball in space where he can make plays with his quickness, speed, and field vision. He has good, reliable hands and is a solid route runner. I think in the NFL, he could be a really valuable slot receiver type, with the ability to also make plays on the outside. He reminds me a little bit of DeSean Jackson and Mike Wallace, the fast shifty WR that CBs has problems sticking with down the field.
Jack Doyle TE – Western Kentucky
The 6’6 255 TE led his team in receptions with 47 and 530 yards and excelled in the Hilltopper’s West Coast Offensive system of play action and multiple TE sets. What stands out about Doyle is his awesome size but he’s insanely athletic for a big guy. Has very soft and reliable hands and utilizes them very well as he’s very good at making tough catches in traffic. He’s simply an outstanding receiving TE with great awareness. Has great football IQ in that he’s for the most part cognizant of blitzes when blocking. Does a nice effort of getting to the 2nd level when blocking. Shows good lower body strength when driving opponents. He is a solid prospect but he must prove that he can become a better more consistent blocker on the next level and no better place to start than this Saturday when he has to block for RBs that will be running in the NFL next season and D-linemen/Linebackers that will be playing in the NFL next season as well. I love Doyle’s upside and considering Dustin Keller’s uncertainty this off-season, I’d say Doyle would make a great replacement for Keller and considering the Jets have hired an Offensive Coordinator that specializes in the West Coast offense, Doyle’s experience in that offense should at least have him on the Jets radar.
Ezekiel Ansah DE - BYU
The 6’6 270 pound out of BYU has drawn comparisons to Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul but with less production on the collegiate level. He’s an extremely raw prospect who is fairly new to the game of football but one that has insane ability. He will need someone with patience and a high defensive football IQ to coach and lead him and Rex Ryan might just be the guy to turn his raw ability into something QBs will consistently fear off the edges. Ansah can certainly help himself with a great outing on Saturday by showing scouts his game is more complete than off of luck and raw ability.
