5. Khiry Robinson

One of the primary reasons the New York Jets were able to trade for Chris Ivory three years ago during the 2013 NFL Draft, was because the New Orleans Saints had too much talent in their backfield at the time. Now, three years later, Ivory has left the Jets in favor of a fat contract and warmer weather, and another talented New Orleans Saints running back is hitting the open market–Khiry Robinson.

Robinson is the odd man out in the Saints backfield this time around as the team has elected to stick with the thunder and lightning duo of Mark Ingram and C.J. Spiller, and has elected not to bring back the 26-year-old Robinson.

At 6’0″ 220 pounds, Robinson has the build of a three-down back and will surely be an absolute steal for whichever team signs him. He’s only played in 28 career games, rushing for just 766 yards and eight touchdowns in three seasons, but he has a career average of 4.1 yards per carry and has shown flashes of greatness.

His lack of production and current identity as a back-up will bring his price tag way down, which is exactly why the New York Jets should sign him. He’s cheap, and the upside is sky high. If the top four guys elect to sign elsewhere, Robinson would not be a bad contingency plan.
