You can’t teach size and speed and that’s something Quincy Enunwa already has. The New York Jets drafted Enunwa out of Nebraska thinking he would be a project receiver with the ability in a few years to be a special player. At 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, Enunwa passes the eye test. Add in the fact that he has 33″ arms with a 34″ vertical and it is easy to see why Enunwa has a ton of buzz surrounding him.
Obviously Enunwa needs to work on his route-running and his hands, but the talent is there for him to be a special player for the Jets. After failing to get consistent production from their receiver group last year, the Jets made it their goal to bring in the top receiver in free agency in Eric Decker. The Jets also brought in Chris Johnson to help the running game and Jace Amaro to improve the passing game.
Whether it will be Michael Vick or Geno Smith, the talent is there for this offense to be much better than the one fielded in the 2013 NFL season. As I said earlier, it might be a few years before Enunwa plays a big role in the offense, but he can be a special player in the redzone for the Jets in 2014. Enunwa has elite size and that will be his calling card. Enunwa is a good fit in the “West Coast” offense and that’s the type of offense he will play in with the Jets. With coaching, Enunwa’s ceiling is a player like Michael Floyd.
