AFC East's best: No. 23 Dustin Keller
The countdown of my top 25 AFC East players continues, one weekday at a time ...
No. 23 Dustin Keller, Jets tight end
About the choice: Keller's speed and athleticism makes him one of the NFL's most dangerous tight ends. He can go long stretches without posting big stats because the Jets don't implement him consistently, but he led them with 55 receptions last year and was third with 687 yards and five touchdowns. He also led the Jets with 14 catches in the playoffs.
Key fact: In a three-game span during Santonio Holmes' suspension, Keller had 17 catches for 241 yards and five touchdowns.
Hint about No. 22: Before he turned 23 years old, he had played in 44 NFL games and started 31 of them.
