Ian Rapoport says the Jets tried to move up to take USC wide receiver Marqise Lee in the second round.
And there it is, the #Jaguars take USC’s Marqise Lee. The Jets tried to trade up for him, couldn’t make it happen.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) May 9, 2014
Lee would have been a very nice fit in green and white. Without knowing the specifics of what the Jets offered and what the other team demanded, it is impossible to judge whether the team did enough, not enough, or too much to get the prospect.
The bottom line is the Jets liked Lee, but they did not like him enough to make it happen.
