As the NFL Draft approaches, I will be highlighting certain players I believe the New York Jets may select with the 29th pick.
Strengths: Very athletic…able to make acrobatic catches…extremely competitive
Weaknesses: Poor route runner…lacks elite speed…not a good blocker
Analysis: Many online mock drafts have the Jets taking Tate at their draft position, but I’m not so sure about that. He is a smallish possession receiver with average speed who can make the occasional nice play. That description sounds an awful lot like Jerricho Cotchery, so they really don’t need another guy to play the same role.
