One of the Jets biggest needs in the 2008 draft was a tall reciever, and they were able to add one in the sixth round with Marcus Henry.

Henry is a 6-4, 207-pound target out of Kansas. Aside from his great height, he also has very long arms, which makes him excellent in jump ball situations. Henry has little fear going over the middle and has good body control.

While he doesn't have eye-popping speed (in the 4.6 area), he plays faster than he times. And he has a very good work ethic, which is a must if you want to play for the Tangini Jets.

And one other factor that made him appealing to the Jets is his nickname - "Mute." The Jets don't like players who have a lot to say.
