While most of us are still digging out from the major snowstorm of yesterday, let’s look ahead at the NFL draft.
The Jets need weapons on offense. We have heard chapter and verse on the big weapons from early in the draft like Marqise Lee, Mike Evans, and Eric Ebron. But, what about players after the first round? Who are some of the players that could help AFTER the first round?
Take a look at Jared Abbrederis from the University of Wisconsin
Here are his stats from his college days:
Receiving & Rushing
He measures in at 6’2″, 190 pounds.
Here is some footage on this player:
PROS: First things first, Jared has terrific hands. He uses them to catch the football like a pro, he doesn’t let the ball into his body like Stephen Hill does. He also runs excellent routes, it’s visible on the tape that he gets consistent separation and can turn cornerbacks the wrong way. He also can go get the ball at its highest point.
CONS: The biggest question with any young receiver coming out of school is whether he can get off of press coverage. Nobody plays it in school, so the kids unfortunately don’t get the experience. Learning to play against the press coverage will be key for Jared Abbrederis to succeed.
Other than that, this kid clearly has talent. Abbrederis would be an interesting 2nd/3rd round choice this May.
