The Jets used a 4th-round pick on Miami TE Chris Herndon. He tore his MCL in last year's regular-season finale and wasn't able to workout pre-draft, but Herndon looks plenty athletic on tape. He was a 3-year starter for the 'Canes and left school with a 12.2 yards-per-catch average. This landing spot is as good as it gets. Herndon's competition for 2018 snaps and targets consists of Clive Walford, Jordan Leggett and Eric Tomlinson.
The Jets used a 5th round pick on Clemson TE Jordan Leggett. A 4-year player, Leggett racked up 40 catches in 2015 before tallying 46 -- averaging 16 yards per catch -- in 2016. He looks the part at 6'5, 258 pounds but isn't a polished blocker. The Jets provide a great landing spot, at least for immediate opportunity. While New York TEs combined for only 28 targets last year, note that they're now under the direction of new OC John Morton -- formerly the Saints' WR coach.
