Time to navigate another 2014 NFL mock draft.
Bucky Brooks is one of the many draft specialists for NFL.com. We know that this is the time of year that everyone is writing their own mock drafts, trying to decipher who will get chosen when, come the first round of the 2014 NFL draft.
A couple of days ago, Brooks released his second mock draft of the season. Who does he have for the Jets at number eighteen?
MARQISE LEE, WR, USC
The Jets desperately need a playmaker on the perimeter to help Geno Smith take his game to the next level. Lee is super explosive with the ball in his hands.

As we know, the Jets certainly couldn’t go wrong by making this selection. The Jets need down the field weapons to accelerate the progress of Geno Smith, and Marqise Lee would fit that bill like a glove.
The only question I have is the fact that Jace Amaro is still available. There are a lot of impact wide receivers available in this draft, but not very many impact receiving tight ends.
The Jets might be better served going with Amaro here, and looking for a wide receiver in the next round. That being said, they certainly wouldn’t be “wrong” by making the pick of Lee here.
