In a statement about what the team feels about new change of pace back Joe McKnight, and probably what they feel about Leon Washington’s agent Alvin McKeels, now locked in contentious negotiations regarding Leon Washington for more than a year, the Jets sent Washington to Seattle today, just minutes after selecting McKnight #113 overall.

In the trade, the Jets received Seattle’s 5th round choice for Washington, and the Jets 7th round selection in today’s portion of the draft.  McKnight played in a pro style offense at USC, and ran a 4.4/40 yard dash at the combine, but has been clocked closer to a 4.3 at some of his other recorded times.  McKnight scored 8 touchdowns in his junior season at USC and had two 2 touchdown games. 

McKnight is leaving USC as a junior, and just turned 22 last week.  Also, he did not fumble or lose a fumble in 2009.
