The New York Jets don’t have a real top number one talented receiver. However, they do have some talent in that Wide receiver room. They’ve brought in several other veterans to compete for a time along with likes of Ty Montgomery the strongest two returns will be Quincy Enunwa and Robby Anderson.

Anderson has built himself into a reliable target, and at 6’3 with blazing speed and above average route running he will benefit significantly from Adam Gase’s desire to stretch the field vertically. Darnold will be allowed to push the limit vertically, and with additional run support from Bell, Darnold will probably see more one high safety looks.

This Quote came from the newyorkjets.com Via Coach Adam Gase, “I was very impressed with Robby’s speed. You don’t see a whole lot of guys that have what he has,” the coach said. “And the way he tracks the ball downfield, I don’t think I’ve been around a player that does it as smooth. When he sticks his hands out, and at speed, he’s running, you see him pluck the ball and keep on going.”

The Rookie and second-year players will have to grow up quicker than expected with the need for production from players not named Robby Anderson. J.J Jones and Charone Peake should make for two exciting targets for Darnold

The Rookie additions of Jeff Smith and Greg Dortch make for two solid young players who could find themselves being used on the field more than they anticipated in their first season out of college.

The most intriguing thing that about this group of receivers is that the team as built a wide variety of skill sets across the board, adding some large targets and some traditionally more speedy slot receivers that can easily be traded in an out for one another.
