Time for another mock draft evaluation. This one is from our very network.
Our friends at NFL Mocks have done their first post-combine mock draft. It included some trades this time, but not a trade for the Jets, keeping them at number 18. So, who do they have for the Jets?
MARQISE LEE, WR, USC
A solid combine merely affirmed that Marqise Lee is a dynamic weapon at wide receiver. His speed-agility combination, along with good route running skills make him a big play threat. The New York Jets badly need such weapons. Adding Lee could give Geno Smith that go-to guy he didn’t have last year.

He measured in at the combine at 6’0″, 192 pounds. His 40 yard dash was a quick 4.52 seconds, and he showed some explosion with a top broad jump performance of 127 inches.
Marqise suffered through injury problems last season, which will always be a risk. But, nobody will be upset if this is the choice for the Jets. The Jets need a playmaker, and Marqise Lee is a playmaker.
