Despite getting Santonio Holmes back from injury and Stephen Hill gaining a year of experience, the Jets need receiver depth in the worst way. So they could look into taking one of these players with their first couple of picks.
Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech: Patton was not able to show off his athleticism in Louisiana Tech's offense, but he was one of the most impressive players during the week of practice. He had great technique and made contested catches.
For the Jets, the only problem with Patton is that his stock may be rising so much that he may be too expensive for them, even in the second round.
Ryan Swope, Texas A&M: Swope has the makings of a slot receiver, with great hands and good lateral quickness, but he lacks elite speed.
The Jets already have a slot receiver in Jeremy Kerley, but they need to add as much depth as possible.
Chris Harper, Kansas State: Harper has excellent hands, dropping just one pass in 2012. He also made a handful of contested catches in Senior Bowl practice, showing great body control.
He lacks ideal size at 6'1, but he has good quickness and would fit the Jets' new West Coast-style offense.
Terrance Williams, Baylor: Another year, another Baylor receiver taken early in the draft. CBS Sports went so far as to call him the best receiver in Mobile this week. He showed plenty of quickness and the ability to make adjustments on the ball. He even impressed in his willingness to block.
Williams will likely command at least a second-round pick, but he has a chance to sneak into the first round if he continues to impress on Saturday and throughout the draft process.
Markus Wheaton, Oregon State: Wheaton has good speed and runs solid routes, and he showed the ability to make adjustments on contested catches during the practices.
Wheaton is a bit undersized at 5'11", but he has plenty of talent and should be at taken in the second day of the draft.
