Cotchery (6-0, 199LBS) is a two time first team all ACC selection who broke school records with 200 career receptions and 15 career 100-yard receiving games, both previously held by current Rams WR Torry Holt. He is also the only ACC WR history besides Peter Warrick to catch 200 career receptions and have 3000 career receiving yards. His scouting report lists Cotchery as a quick WR with an athletic frame, long arms and good lower body power. He’s a bit raw but has a lot of upside potential. His speed is not great (4.66/40) but he makes up for it with precise moves and good leg drive after the catch.

Jones (6-4, 296LBS) has talent but is a project. He was converted from TE his senior year at Kansas and added close to 40 Lbs of muscle in the process. He’s a quick physical player with a lot of potential that will undoubtedly be spending a lot of time with Jets OL coach Doug Marrone to develop into an NFL caliper lineman.

Coleman(5-10 200LBS), was the leader of Washington State’s defense. His scouting report touts him as a “smart and instinctive player who quickly reads and diagnoses the plays and makes all defensive calls and adjustments”. He is also a stellar special teams player who can cover well on punt and kickoff returns. He can also handle kickoff returnss as well. On the negative side, Coleman needs to work on his deep coverage and has had a history nagging injuries.

The Jets next pick is in the sixth round (Pick 178).
