Marlon Humphrey – Cornerback – AlabamaCornerback is a monstrous area of need for the Jets this offseason. “Star” corner Darrelle Revis is constantly calling himself old, and the tape proves him right. It’s very likely he’s gone after the season, as his contract is not worth his play anymore.
Step in Alabama cornerback Marlon Humphrey.
Humphrey is a big defensive back, standing at 6-foot-1, 198 pounds with good strength to come up and make the tackles on receivers and running backs alike. He has shown good turnover-causing ability, garnering five interceptions, a pick six and three forced fumbles the last two seasons combined – an ever important statistical area in need of improvement for the Jets.
If Jets’ brass see Humphrey’s name still on the clock during their pick on draft day, it would be tough for them to pass him up, shoring up their secondary significantly in the process.
But Jets fans must try not to get horror flashbacks of also Alabama CB Dee Milliner if Humphrey does get picked by the Green and White on that fateful night next April.
