So The New York Jets Drafted Quincy Enunwa.....

Bruce Thorson-USA TODAY Sports

With the 209th pick of the NFL Draft, the New York Jets drafted Quincy Enunwa in the sixth round.

So, the first thing you notice about Quincy Enunwa is that he's a physical specimen. You see it when he catches passes, but more so when he blocks. Quincy is the guy who gets out on the edge and can either take out the Cornerback pretty well, or even pinch in downfield and sweep out a pursuing Linebacker or Safety.

Catching footballs, however, is what Quincy did better than any other Husker last year. For all the talk of Allen Robinson and Cody Latimer and such, Enunwa was the man who led the B1G in Touchdown Receptions for the season, and that is with a season that no Husker QB was in the top 11 in the Conference in Pass Efficiency.

Enunwa can be a man who keeps the drive alive and you can throw that bubble screen to his side, he'll make the play. The 99 yard touchdown reception against Georgia in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl was perfect Quincy: 9 route, made the catch under duress of a hit coming from the Safety, and just enough speed to pull away to make the big play.

College History:

2010: Freshman, played in 10 games. 1 reception for 10 yards. 
2011: Sophomore, played in 13 games, starting 7. 21 receptions, 293 yards, 2 TD's. 
2012: Junior, started all 14 games, 42 receptions, 470 yards, 1 TD. 
2013: Senior, started all 13 games, 51 receptions, 753 yards, 12 TD's.

Totals: 50 games played, 34 starts, 115 receptions, 1526 yards, 15 TD's.


Quincy will be a guy that will have to show his chops early on Special Teams, and hope that he can wear into the WR core of whomever he gets drafted into with 4 and 5 wide sets. Some teams will love his physicality while others won't. NFL scouts say his hands will need help catching more footballs, however there's a usefulness to Enunwa to nearly every NFL team out there. He could be that H-Back type of guy, but can flourish either out on the edges.
