Shortly after Jarius Wright is Iowa's Marvin McNutt.
McNutt accounted for 1,315 receiving yards and scored 12 TDs on 82 receptions in 2011 despite being in a run-balanced offense with a new quarterback (James Vandenberg) under center.
The previous two seasons, McNutt's solid production went under the radar quite a bit, as Derrell Johnson-Koulianos and Ricky Stanzi stole the spotlight.
In 2009 and 2010, McNutt caught 87 balls for over 1,500 yards and scored 16 TDs. Not bad for a No. 2 receiver in the Big Ten. Add in his 6'3", 215-pound frame and Marvin's ability to stretch the field, he will be welcomed addition to the New York Jets.
Plaxico Burress is old and while still a great fade route receiver, he's not much more than that right now. Santonio Holmes has attitude problems thus leaving Mark Sanchez with one consistently reliable target, tight-end Dustin Keller.
Well, bring in McNutt and the field is stretched opposite of Burress thus leaving the middle open for Keller. Not to mention that takes pressure of Sanchez as well as the ground game.
And with the disappointment of Braylon Edwards from 2009 and 2010, Sanchez has never really had a legitimized deep threat receiver. In this draft, Marvin McNutt can be that guy.
