Top Offseason Question: Jets
By ESPN.com staff
To help prime you for what promises to be an action-packed offseason, we polled Insider's experts -- Bill Polian, Mel Kiper, Todd McShay, Herm Edwards, Louis Riddick, Ron Jaworski and Mike Sando -- on the 50 most pressing questions facing the league in the months ahead. Ranging from league-wide issues to nitty-gritty roster fixes, there's something for each and every one of the league's 32 teams.
Who is the best playmaker the Jets could take in the first round (No. 18) to make this offense more dynamic in 2014?
Todd McShay: It all depends on who is available when the Jets are on the clock, but three guys in particular jump out at me as good options for the Jets at No. 18. 1.) Clemson's Sammy Watkins is the most talented and has the best skill set of any wide receiver in this draft. 2.) USC's Marqise Lee isn't the biggest receiver, but he has big-league speed both as a route runner and after the catch. 3.) Texas A&M's Mike Evans is the third-ranked WR on our board, so he could slide to the Jets, but he's so impressive on tape that it wouldn't surprise me if he is the first receiver off the board. No receiver in this class is better at going up and getting the ball than Evans.
