Ranking The New York Jets First-Round NFL Draft Candidates

5. Kevin Dodd, DE, Clemson

Prior to 2015, the only big time bookend defensive prospect at Deathy Valley was Shaq Lawson.

Once 2015 concluded, Kevin Dodd had made his presence felt.

Dodd is a player who fits the Jets edge rushing need, but isn’t the fleetest of foot in comparison to some of the other guys.

He played DE at Clemson, which means he’s a little bigger at 277 lbs. This sure can fit the OLB role in a 3-4, but it’s something to note.


His competitive desire is off the charts and compares a lot to Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett.
