Drafting Jeremy Kerley and signing Patrick Turner are the lone examples of the Jets going young. Kerley arguably showed the most potential for growth in the 2011 season, and Turner has shown flashes when given the opportunity. Fast forward to 2012 and the Jets have finally addressed this issue. Enter Stephen Hill, the second round pick that Tannenbaum traded up four spots to get (from 47th to 43rd). The signing of free agent Chaz Schilens may also fit the mold of an unproven veteran and thus an impressionable WR. Sanchez will be entering his fourth season and for the first time he will have a receiving corps that will be younger than him spare Holmes. Both Manning brothers have done this for years along with Green Bay QBs. Take athletic WRs in the draft and let them form to the system in place. The Jets might not be a great team this year but one thing is for sure, the consistency of Jets passing game will improve greatly with this diverse cast of young role players. The Jets might have finally turned the corner with this one but we’ll have to wait until September to find out.
