The Jets are sorely in need of playmakers. Trade rumors are swirling around the dynamic Percy Harvin from Minnesota. Gang Green tried to trade back into the first round in 2009 after taking Mark Sanchez to grab him. Should the Jets jump in now?
The Jets absolutely need somebody like Harvin. He is the kind of explosive homerun hitter this team does not have. He is a threat to score from anywhere on the field. Harvin leaves few yards on the field. He had one of the lowest drop rates in the league, catching 62 of 63 catchable balls according to Pro Football Focus. He caught 76.5% of passes thrown in his direction. He also had the fourth highest yards gained per route run of players who appeared in at least 25% of their team's pass plays and caused the most missed tackles for a wide receiver.
He is fast and elusive. Harvin is not a traditional deep threat. He's probably too small to be a great vertical threat on the outside at 5'11" and 185 pounds, and the Vikings did not use him in that way. He is a guy who is a playmaker you can move all over the field from the backfield to the slot to create mismatches. You get him the ball in space, and watch him go to work.
