New York Jets 2013 NFL Mock Draft, Week 2: Third Round Projection Analysis
In reference to this week’s latest mock draft of the New York Jets, produced by Jon Presser, the third round pick is a tight end with tons of potential. He might be the fifth best tight end in the draft, but Travis Kelce has the opportunity to come into the league as a starter right away.
The Jets appear to be thin at this position, with the loss of Dustin Keller to the Miami Dolphins. The Jets have Konrad Reuland and Hayden Smith on their depth chart at the tight end position. Reuland is not a first string tight end; he isn’t even a second string tight end. Smith just started playing football last year. If this doesn’t give it away, let me tell you; the Jets desperately need help at the position.
Kelce is a good, balanced athlete, who accelerates quickly to an impressive top speed. Kelce has instinctive skills at the receiving position, possessing good hands, the ability to work back to the ball, and deceiving quickness after the catch. Kelce has strong hands and he is an aggressive, feisty blocker who picks up his blocking assignments very well.
Kelce needs to control his movements, as he will occasionally move too fast which hurts him in the long run. There is a big question on his character, as he missed all of the 2010 season due to a violation to team rules. However, with comparisons to Brandon Pettigrew from the Detroit Lions as a big receiver who can block, Kelce as a bright future in the league.
