Player Outlook
The Jets traded up to draft Corley in Round 3 of the 2024 NFL Draft. If all goes well, he could be the WR2 for Aaron Rodgers and the Jets as soon as this season. Corley has a very specific skillset, he's incredible after the catch, but there are questions about the rest of his game. The fact that he led the FBS with 2,068 yards after catch over the past three seasons earned him comparisons to Deebo Samuel and the moniker "YAC King". That skillset could work very well next to Garrett Wilson, but Corley will have to master a more complete route tree to be a Fantasy starter. In redraft, view him as a dart throw in the double-digit rounds. In Dynasty, starting considering him in the middle of Round 2 of rookie drafts.

  • Jets' Malachi Corley: Exits practice early

    Corley left Wednesday's practice early with an undisclosed lower-body injury and returned without a helmet, Connor Hughes of SNY.tv reports. Hughes notes that Corley walked with a limp after the incident, giving another hint that the rookie won't return to practice Wednesday. The injury doesn't sound especially serious, as a player typically would stay inside rather than joining his teammates to watch the rest of practice if there were concern about a major health issue. With Mike Williams (knee) unavailable for offseason practices, the Jets seem to have a wide-open depth chart at receiver behind No. 1 option Garrett Wilson. Coming in as a third-round pick, Corley should get some first-team reps and may eventually win a role as the team's No. 3 receiver behind Wilson and Williams. Jets quarterback Aaron Rodgers apparently is a fan, having recently said that Corley was his favorite wide receiver in the 2024 NFL Draft, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.com.

  • Jets' Malachi Corley: Big Apple bound

    The Jets selected Corley in the third round of the 2024 NFL Draft, 65th overall. Corley adds depth behind the Jets' star power out wide behind Garrett Wilson and Mike Williams. He posted remarkable production during his time at Western Kentucky with 29 touchdowns over the last three seasons. He was the engine of one of the most explosive offenses in the country, taking on workhorse target shares upwards of 143 in one season (2022). He never saw fewer than 103 targets in any of his final three seasons. As for how his game translates, Western Kentucky maxed him out with short passes and screens, trusting him to make plays after the catch. With Corley's 207-pound frame and 4.56 speed, it remains to be seen if he can have that same YAC success at the next level. Even with questions about how his college role will translate, the Jets could prove a nice fit -- he has a path to working out of the slot right away as an intermediate target for Aaron Rodgers.
