NFL Mocks of the FanSided network recently had a list which power ranked the top wide receivers heading into the upcoming season as Robby Anderson of the New York Jets made the cut.

Oh yes New York Jets fans, next season should be a better one than what we’ve been experiencing the past two seasons. Well, hopefully. From a new franchise quarterback in town to some nice upgrades to the Jets defensive secondary, it’s expected they should be even more competitive this upcoming season. It all comes down to how well the young players of the team develop towards a brighter future.

At least in the eyes of NFL Mocks of the FanSided network, the Jets have such a young player worth watching in 2018. Erik Lambert of NFL Mocks recently power ranked the top 32 wide receivers that should post some serious numbers next season with wide receiver Robby Anderson making the cut.

Yes, he was No. 32 on Lambert’s list but it’s great to see a member of the Jets get some recognition based on their previous impact and potential. It goes to show that he’s on the radar of many and easily a future impact player ready to separate himself from the rest.

Here is what Lambert had to say about Anderson and why he was selected among some of the top wideouts of next season:

What a find this kid is turning out to be for the New York Jets. He came almost out of nowhere as an undrafted free agent from Temple in 2016. Then this season he emerges to become their most effective pass target with 941 yards and seven touchdowns. This despite Josh McCown being his primary quarterback. Would somebody care to explain how teams missed this kid?

Despite having several offseason distractions, no one can ever knock Anderson when it comes to his raw talent and everything he brings to the table. Anderson has been participating in organized team activities and even in mandatory minicamp ready to put the past behind him and focus on being an even better wide receiver for the Jets.

Could this be the year that Anderson breaks out and delivers his biggest season yet? It could very well happen and especially if, at some point, quarterback Sam Darnold gets to begin his NFL career in his rookie season. Both young players would undoubtedly progress faster thanks to a new and special connection that could blossom for many years if everything falls into place.
