DALLAS – With the departure of Austin Seferian Jenkins this off-season, adding depth at the tight end position was a priority. The Jets addressed the need by drafting Miami TE Chris Herndon with the 107th pick in the 4th round.
Herndon, at 6’4″ 253 Lbs is a big target with excellent hands. He suffered a season ending MCL injury last season that required surgery but is expected to be ready for training camp. If he had not had the injury he likely would have been a much higher pick.
Last year, Herndon had 40 catches for 477 yards and 4 TD’s despite missing the last two games of the season. The Jets will try to get him involved in the offense as soon as possible.
