Little dude is a beast. 165LBs yet is a fearless blocker for both the run and pass and will continue until the whistle. He finds a way to contribute to the play even if the play isn't designed for him. Also, he forces penalties on the defense with his quickness and shiftiness. Damn good punt returner.

We'll have to see. I hear he's now up to 175lbs. It was stated at Idzik's day 3 press conference.

He's kerley insurance. He's a punt returner and a shift receiver. I kind of think this pick means we aren't resigning kerley next year. Evans wasa replacement for hill, saunders a replacement for kerley

what I like about him is he is fearless AND he knows how to catch a football WITH HIS HANDS. This kid looks like he's going to force that stiff that we drafted in the 2nd round to a nice managerial position at the local Burger King...Stephen Hill that's the guy-he is done as a Jet...and as Green Day once said: GODD RIDDANCE

I think he's got a chance. He's a backup slot and legit returner.

 

Pros: Good hand catching and good in space. He is a willing blocker despite his size, albeit against Alabama it looks like his size is going to hurt him there.

 

Cons: Looks like he's going to have trouble with high balls because of his height and I don't like that if his initial route is covered he just kind of gives up on the play and doesn't try to help his QB out that much. He had a couple bad fumbles as well and I don't know how durable he's going to be.

 

I think I would've preferred a higher upside guy, but I don't hate him as a player. He's pretty talented but with a big flaw and looks like he was probably worth being a 4th-5th rounder guy.

Remember that time a few months ago when I said I had blue balls, and you, well, you gave a brother a hand?

That would be it for me..

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Not necessarily. It for sure means that Kerley won't hold us hostage. But kerley can produce on the field. Hill for sure is in trouble because all these WR's can't make the squad. I'll be rooting for Hill though. If competition will allow Hill to put it together than his 6'4 frame and sub 4.4 speed will be much needed. He needs to earn it though.

I kind of disagree and think he may be better then Kerley. Not in 2014 but beyond that yes.

On the other hand, it gives him a better shot at catching Geno's bounce passes.

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.

I see it playing out next year like Austin Howard's situation. Idzik will give kerley a number and will not budge. If kerley likes it he'lm resign, if he gets a better offer he's gone

I think I would've preferred a higher upside guy, but I don't hate him as a player. He's pretty talented but with a big flaw and looks like he was probably worth being a 4th-5th rounder guy.

I noticed the 2 high balls that went off his hands as well. Not the biggest of catching radius. His hands aren't big.

 

I see what you mean with the higher ceiling type player, however I feel that when you are already super thin at the position and already have a 6'4 developmental player in Hill then you get guys who have a higher floor because after all, you need production now. Once production is somewhat respectable then I feel that we can take a chance on another developmental guy. We'd be pissed if we drafted a guy like Martavis Bryant which has much more upside potential, but if he doesn't put it together then we're stuck with Decker and Kerley being our only productive WR's for the entire year while having Hill and Bryant who look like beast sitting on the sideline on I.R. towards the end of the season on our way to another 8-8 type record. 

 

Seems like Idzik felt that we needed to get those "what you see is what you get" type players so we at least know that we're adding something immediately for the short term.
