Now that the 2014 NFL Draft is over, it's time to see just how much each draft pick the New York Jets made will contribute this upcoming season. Take a look at these predictions for the impact of every single draft pick once the season starts.

IK Enemkpali is a utility kind of football player with the majority of his playing time as a defensive end, but he is entering the NFL poised to be a linebacker. The transition isn't an easy one as he'll need a few years to develop to NFL standards. Don't expect to see him starting anytime soon, but he should do well on special teams coverage.

11. LB Jeremiah George

Jeremiah George is too undersized to fit in the type of defensive schemes the Jets like to use, but he has an incredible work ethic. Keep in mind many said the same thing about Ray Lewis and look how his career ended up. I'm not saying George is on that path, but he's the kind of player who will never give up and is always willing to learn how to improve. Expect to see him be a part of the team as depth.

10. WR Quincy Enunwa

Dexter McDougle is incredibly fast and has potential to be an incredibly good cornerback for the Jets provided he's healthy.

Expect to see him make the team and contribute immediately on the field in various defensive packages.

Brandon Dixon has a ton of potential to be another defensive anchor in the Jets' secondary. He's a very tough competitor but needs some more development since he tends to have issues covering top receivers thrown his way. Expect to see him be used primarily as depth as he develops into being a better cornerback.
