Kelvin Benjamin in the AFC East..

NFL.com published a piece today about the Jets' interest in Kelvin Benjamin:

We know Idzik and Rex attended the FSU pro day, and that Sith Lord Belichick worked Benjamin out privately:

What I'd like to ask is - why do so many of you dismiss the notion of us drafting Kelvin at 18? What I saw last year and on tape is a true NFL #1 receiver - massive catch radius on slants, a breaker of CB tackles, a back-shoulder mismatch on sideline rail shots, a red zone beast, a winner on go-routes. But most importantly I see:

A guy I do not want Tom Brady throwing to. I don't see how we would defend him.

I respect Cooks and Lee, I like Odell Beckham and Donte Moncrief too - but fast, small corners can defend those guys. If Kelvin Benjamin developed his hands (college drops seem to be the only knock), he could truly dominate. With us set at #2 and #3 with Decker and Kerley, isn't a 6'5" 240lb+ national champion #1 a giant windfall with the 18th pick? What am I missing? Appreciate your comments and insights.
