Former Oklahoma Sooner WR, Jalen Saunders, Agrees To Terms With NY Jets

Rich Schultz

With the 104th pick of the 2014 NFL Draft, the New York Jets selected former Oklahoma Sooner wide receiver, Jalen Saunders. On Friday, it was announced that the 5-9 165-pound Saunders had agreed to terms with the franchise becoming the ninth of twelve draft picks to do so.

This is one tough little guy. He gets after it. He averaged like 16 yards a punt return and you see that burst, that quickness, the acceleration, the flat-out speed that he has. He's small, but I don't think we need to tell him that because I don't think he realizes it. He goes out there like he's 225 pounds. - Rex Ryan via NewYorkJets.com

During his collegiate career, Saunders averaged 15.2 yards per catch while totaling up 26 touchdowns. However, it was in the return game that the talented receiver added a spark fans had been looking for after the departure of Ryan Broyles. Averaging 15.4 yards per return, Saunders took two to the house during his senior year at Oklahoma.
