I kind of disagree and think he may be better then Kerley. Not in 2014 but beyond that yes.
I agree. He's faster than Kerley. And at the same point in their career Jalen has been light years more productive than Jeremy Kerley. Kerley never had a 100 yard game in college, Jalen has 10 with 5 of those going for 150+ yards. Kerley has only scored multiple TD's in his collegiate career twice both in his senior season, Jalen did it 6 times though out his years. Saunders least productive years rivals Kerley's most productive year (yards wise). Kerley caught 12 TD's in his college career, Saunders caught 12 TD's in his sophomore year alone.
This is purely a comparison of collegiate stats. I think we scored huge on Kerley so Im not trying to come off like he needs to be replaced. What I'm saying is that Saunders has the looks to be a guy who could legitimately fight for that #2 spot and most definitely can produce in the slot. Also, if the Jets find a serviceable #2 WR (David Nelson or Shaq Evans???) and Saunders is held to slot service then having Decker and Nelson (or Shaq) on the outside with Kerley and Saunders on the inside during 4 WR sets sounds much more respectable than what we were putting on the field last year. Heck, imagine that with Jace Amaro in-line? its not the best line-up in the league but I do believe that Saunders is making this team and Shaq & Quincy could show more than the depth WR's we currently have.
