Evaluating & Ranking The 2016 New York Jets Weaponry

9. Kenbrell Thompkins, WR

  • AGE: 27, 6’0”, 195 lbs.
  • 2015: 7 G, 33 TGT, 17 REC, 165 YDS, 0 TD

Kenbrell Thompkins was one sensational catch away from turning his ordinary name into something special in the history books of the New York Jets.

Just look at the reaction of the sideline. They understood how close the Jets were to achieving a miracle, an 11-5 record, and an NFL Postseason berth.

But alas, it was not to be.

This is a catch a starting NFL wide receiver should make. The ball was right in Thompkins’ hands and only a brief brush from the safety jarred it loose.

Though he’s not a starter, Thompkins does bring some veteran depth to the table. As an undrafted rookie free agent signing with the New England Patriots in 2013, he could be as high as a No. 4 guy with New York.
