Scouting the draft episode 1






Over the next few weeks and months i intend to post my thoughts on players i think could make an impact on this team at a position of need . For my 1st effort i have chosen a TE . Keller is a FA this off season and might be looking for money the team can't afford to pay .


Zach Ertz Stanford Ht 6'6" , 250lbs , projected 40 4.6

Well what can i say about this guy ? Well for a start he has 66 catches (the most of any TE in the country )so far this year for 837yards and 6 TD's , all without Andrew Luck .

As the footage shows , he can line up anywhere and is a mismatch for defences . He has great hands and also looks well above average blocking . He also isn't afraid of contact and regularly looks to lay a hit on any tackler . He also seems to do a good job of finding space when the QB is keeping the play alive . Zach has a good wing span and a very good vertical but what impresses me the most is how quick he can get down to balls thrown low .

At the moment he is seen by many as a mid round pick but i can see him moving up on draft day . He has everything scouts now look for from a TE . He is the type of player that can start from day 1 although he still needs to improve his blocking for the NFL. This guy would be a great replacement for Keller and come a lot cheaper . Only problem is we would probably have to use our 2nd round pick to get him .

At the moment i see Zach Ertz as the best TE in this years draft ahead of Tyler Eifert and also a great match for what this team needs . If we re sign Keller then TE is no longer a massive need but until then we need to look for a guy who not only can match what Keller gives us but gives us more . I my eyes i think Zach Ertz is a guy that can over time , be an upgrade over Keller . I think he has Pro Bowl potential if drafted to the right team .

Would you like to see the jets draft this guy ? What round would you be happy to draft him in ?
