2015 NFL Draft: New York Jets Select WR Devin Smith

With the fifth pick in the second round (No. 37 overall), the New York Jets have selected Devin Smith out of Ohio State.

Position: Wide Receiver

Measurables: 6’0”, 198 lbs, 31” arm length, 9” hands


If you’re looking for a pure deep threat with home-run potential every time he streaks down field, Smith is your guy. If you blink you’ll miss Smith streaking off the snap, and his ability to absolutely rip the top off any secondary is a key attribute. However, his hands need work and he may need a hands-on, no-nonsense wide receivers coach/offensive coordinator to rid him of his glaring concentration lapses.
