FRED DAVIS, TE: The Jets are going to be in the market for a tight end. Despite the fact that I am a fan, I don’t see them bringing Dustin Keller back, with the injury trouble that he had in 2012. People talk a lot about Anthony Fasano, but what about Fred Davis? He’s a young guy, only 27 years old. Again, Fred’s stats don’t jump off the page, but when he has started more than 10 games in a season, he has actually played quite well. He started 10 in 2009, and caught 48 passes for 509 yards and 6 TDs. In 2011, he started 12, catching 59 passes for 796 yards and 3 TDs. If given the chance, which he would get if playing with the Jets, he performs well. His grade was a 2.1, which was far higher than Keller’s (-0.5). The Jets will need an active player in the passing game from the tight end position, and if they don’t hang onto Keller, Davis might just be the guy. Make the call.

MICHAEL JOHNSON, DE: This is a name that I didn’t even recognize, but I am glad I looked him up. He just finished his fourth season, and came into his own last year. He came off the edge last year to record 52 tackles and 11.5 sacks, which we all know would have led the Jets by quite a wide margin. At 6’7″, 270 pounds, he is a huge body, and could potentially be stood up at an outside linebacker position. He is a guy with good straight line speed and can close. Like we said earlier with Bennett, an impact player off the edge will make Coples and “Beastmo” that much more effective. Make the call.
