The New York Jets have had no offensive weapons to speak of for a long time, but they’re looking to change that this offseason so that whoever is under center in 2014 has a chance for once.
The addition of Eric Decker from the Denver Broncos is a nice first step, but the Jets need more than one receiving threat, and with free agency drying up, the deep draft class is the next best option. According to New York Daily News reporter Manish Mehta, the Jets are interested in drafting Kelvin Benjamin and are seeking out more information about him.

It has also been reported that the Jets have interest in USC wide out Marqise Lee, which seems to further tip their hand in the first-round. They’re not a lock to draft a receiver, but the Jets clearly are doing their due diligence anyways.
