Terrific late-round value for Jets Dan Leberfeld

I know it’s still early, and the Jets haven’t played any preseason games yet, but rookie WR Charone Peake looks like a potential late-round steal.

Watching him in mini-camps, and for a couple weeks of training camp, to me, he looks more like a second-third round prospect than a seventh-rounder.

He’s got a nice combination of size (6-2, 209) and speed (4.37), and also has very long arms, so he can beat cornerbacks downfield with his wheels, and win jump balls as well.

He’s also a very good blocker, and looks like he should be a factor on kick/punt coverage with his speed and toughness.

In retrospect, Peake probably should have gone higher than the seventh round.

He has a lot of talent.
