Jets add big-time weapon on offense in ArDarius Stewart
By Michael Pallas
The New York Jets have finally drafted a huge weapon for their offense, wide receiver ArDarius Stewart.
The New York Jets are getting a physical wide receiver in their newly drafted wide receiver, ArDarius Stewart. He’s is a solid blocker in the run game, and will not allow a defensive back to jam him at the line, fighting it off with his hands.
In addition to that, he has great route running skills and speed. Stewart will be able to run after the catch, and he will be a dangerous weapon.

When it comes to challenging defenders, he does that well, too. He will make it a nightmare to cover him.
Defenders won’t only have to worry about Stewart’s speed, but his head games as well. He can sell defenders on route concepts by varying speeds and turn his head to make the defender think the ball is on its way.
Heading into training camp, he will compete early with wide receiver Jalin Marshall for the slot role. Stewart will also compete early on the kickoff return team.
The combination of Robby Anderson and Stewart might turn into a problem for opposing defenses, especially if they start Bryce Petty for the whole season. Having two deep threats with run after catch ability opens up the field for others.
The best way to describe Stewart would be a poor man’s, Hines Ward. He’ll do the dirty work in the run game, and give you his best effort in the passing game as well. Stewart will do just enough to make his presence felt. He will easily be a significant piece in the future of the Jets.
