Player Dustin Keller, TE, Purdue
Team New York Jets
Pick Round 1, Selection 30 (30 Overall)
Stats Ht: 6-2   Wt: 251   40: 4.70  
The Jets need a tight end who can stretch a defense, and Keller can certainly do that with his 4.55 speed. He is a Dallas Clark threat in the passing game with his ability to get down the seam. Another factor in this pick was probably the team's starting tight end, Chris Baker, demanding a trade over his contract. - Dan Leberfeld, Jets Confidential
The Jets have been looking for a pass catching tight end for a while and they've found one with Keller who could push veteran TE Chris Baker for playing time right away.
