Lee brings a lot to the table Dan Leberfeld
When the Jets are on the clock at 18, they are going to have to take a long, hard look at USC wide receiver Marqise Lee.
If they pick him, what will they be getting?
“Pretty much everything they see on film,” Lee said. “Somebody who is going to go out there and get it, to honestly tell you the truth, give it your all, 120 percent, just go out there and make plays.
“I’m going to compete, 24-7, no matter what vet is there, who is coming in, what free agent they got, I’m always going to compete and bring a positive mindset to the game. No negativity, not going to question anything, just going to get the job done.”
While Lee brings a lot to the table, he knows he needs to display more consistent hands. Why the drops at times?
“Loss of focus as far as not looking the ball all the way, not looking the ball all the way in before I make a run, running before catching the ball, things like that,” Lee said.
Another question about Lee is durability. Last season, he dealt with shoulder, knee and leg injuries.
But when healthy, he’s a dynamic talent, who runs very good routes and is very skillful at running after the catch. He’s also a talented kick returner.
He’s a bonafide #1 wide receiver who could really help the Jets.
