Jets TE Dustin Keller has made the NFL.com list for breakout players in the AFC and with good reason. Keller has the ability to be a game changing pass-catching TE as he showed last year during the 34-31 win over the New England Patriots where he caught four first down passes to help win the game.

The Jets currently have a lack of firepower at the WR position, so having a dangerous receiving weapon in Keller will greatly help whoever is throwing the ball this year, be it Kellen Clemens or rookie Mark Sanchez. The TE has become a favorite safety net for QBs and having a talent like Keller at the position will be a life saver.
