At 6'6, 255, Hayden Smith has all the size you want when you are looking for a great tight end. while his football skills are still developing, he is a great athlete. In order for a guy like Mark Sanchez to succeed he will need a good tight end. In all of his previous seasons he had the reliable Dustin keller, but this season he does not know who he will be throwing to. If Hayden Smith emerges from the pack and shows he can be a starting tight end in the NFL, it will open up a lot for the Jets offense.
I truly believe Hayden has the work ethic to thrive in the NFL. In a recent interview with Eric Allen of newyorkJets.com, Hayden said it's "night and day" with making the transition to football. Watching some of the catches he can make during practice, really makes me think Hayden Smith can be a key to the Jets offense.
