The Fansided NFL Mock Draft returns this week and like always I’ll briefly analyze their selection for the Jets.
#14 – New York Jets – Marqise Lee – WR – USC
Rex Ryan is on his way out. Could Geno Smith join him? It’s hard seeing the New York Jets give up on him that fast, especially since he’s not very well armed. So they go get him help. Marqise Lee is fast, agile and plays the receiver position like a technician.
Sign me up. Make the deal. Make it happen. Call it in….
In the Las Vegas Bowl, Marquise Lee appeared to be a man amongst boys out there snatching seven receptions to go along with 118 receiving yards and two touchdowns. He looked as fast as I’ve ever seen him and just a deal of swag and confidence to go along with those numbers. The Jets desperately need a play-making WR that can separate from defenders and Lee is one of few WR prospects this off-season that are capable of being that type of player for the Jets. Jets rookie QB was his own worst enemy a lot this season but lets not sit and act like if Geno had better weapons around him, he and this Jets team as a whole wouldn’t be in a better position right now. I love the Lee pick here and hope Jets GM John Idzik sees the same things in Lee that I see and make the move to help his QB next season whomever that may be.
For those that are unfamiliar with Lee, here are some Marquise Lee highlights. Enjoy…
