|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.|
