Bottom Line

Corley was a fun college player.

He dominated as a short-range, broken-tackle specialist. The raw numbers were unquestionably impressive.

While we have concerns over his one-note profile, there’s a defined path to earning slot snaps – and designed targets – for an Aaron Rodgers offense.

Corley’s in the mix as a late-round pick and WR6/7 stash.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Corley produced eye-popping numbers at Western Kentucky.
    • From 2021-2023, he tallied 253 catches, 2,970 yards, and 29 TDs.
    • He hit 100+ targets in all three campaigns.
    • Most impressively, Corley flashed as an after-catch asset. He forced 77 missed tackles over that stretch – second most in the country, per ESPN.
  • Corley’s usage was lopsided, though.
    • Rarely used downfield, the 5’11, 210-pounded tallied a career aDOT of only 6.3 yards.
    • 51.4% of his career catches came on screens.
  • Corley suffered a foot fracture in high school, but he exits college without a notable injury.

What to Expect in 2024

  • The Jets used a Round 3 pick on Corley, trading up to land him.
    • He was drafted as the WR12 in a loaded class.
  • He joins a WR corps with question marks beyond target hog Garrett Wilson.
  • Mike Williams signed a one-year deal.
    • His resume includes a pair of 1,000-yard seasons. However, he's coming off a Week 3 ACL tear, so it's no guarantee he reaches pre-injury form.
  • Allen Lazard remains under contract, but he’s coming off an ugly 23-311-1 campaign.
  • The rest of the depth chart lacks competiton for Corley’s slot role.
  • Aaron Rodgers called Corley his “favorite” rookie WR in May.
    • “Now, he might not have been the best on paper in the draft,” Rodgers said, “but I really felt like he was going to fit in with what we’re trying to do -- his mindset, his ferocity.”
  • Corley’s ‘24 upside is directly tied to the health of Rodgers, who’s coming off a Week 1 Achilles tear. He’s on track to be 100% for the opener.
  • Corley brings the potential to contribute as a returner.

Xavier Gipson ahead of Malachi Corley

Multiple Jets beat writers have WR Xavier Gipson ahead of WR Malachi Corley on the depth chart heading to training camp. Those two are battling for the slot role between boundary WRs Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams.

Jets QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to be a full participant in OTAs later this month, HC Robert Saleh said. Rodgers is about eight months removed from his torn Achilles. "Once phase three hits, we're not anticipating any restrictions from what we can and can't do with him," Saleh said. It's been a smooth rehab for Rodgers by all accounts, and he should be ready to roll come Week 1. It's excellent news for WR Garrett Wilson, RB Breece Hall, and the rest of New York's skill-position players.

The Jets used a Round 3 pick on Western Kentucky WR Malachi Corley. Corley has commonly drawn comparisons to Deebo Samuel for his after-catch skills. The 5’11, 215-pounder averaged a huge 8.2 yards after catch per reception over his four-year career, including 9.2 over the last two seasons. Corley boasts an impressive combination of power, acceleration, and agility. He forced 55 missed tackles over his final two seasons. There’s not much else to his game at this point, though. In fact, 133 of Corley’s 259 receptions at Western Kentucky – or 51.4% – came on screens. He did very little work downfield, with a minuscule 6.3-yard career average target depth. Corley totaled just 20 catches on 47 targets 20+ yards downfield over the past four years. He has enough athleticism to develop into a more complete receiver. But, at least in the short term, Corley will need heavy volume and designed touches to be a real fantasy factor. He projects as the third or fourth target for a Jets squad that’s expected to remain pass-centric.

Corley has commonly drawn comparisons to Deebo Samuel, and it’s no mystery why. He’s built like a house and runs with purpose post-catch. There’s not much of a deep element to his game, but that doesn’t figure to limit his PPR potential in the pros.
