Tight end Dustin Keller is likely going to be Mark Sanchez's go to guy this season.
If there's any one on the team that could revive the Jets offense, it's tight end Dustin Keller.
Keller led last season's offense with the most receptions on the team with 65. Those 65 receptions added up to 815 yards—good enough for about 12.5 yards per reception.
In each of his last three seasons, the tight end has increased in both receptions and total yards. His rookie season, Keller had 45 receptions for 522 yards and two touchdowns. To go from 45 receptions to 65 in just three seasons is incredible, and you can bet that he'll have more catches and yards than last year in the upcoming season.
According to a scouting report over at FFtoolbox.com by Randall Weida, Keller is a premier tight end with an extremely high ceiling, which he has yet to reach. Weida writes,
He has good speed for a tight end and Keller has one of the best hands in the country, wide receivers included. What makes him hard to cover for most linebackers and safeties is his ability to go up and get balls high over the middle.
We've seen Keller display his talents numerous times by grabbing receptions and turning them into positive gains.
With Dustin just entering his prime, you should expect this guy to have a breakout season and perhaps carry the New York offense.
