5. Quincy Enunwa, WR/TE
- AGE: 24, 6’2”, 225 lbs.
- 2015: 12 G, 46 TGT, 22 REC, 315 YDS, 2 TD
First of all, what is he? At 6’2” and 225 lbs., is Quincy Enunwa a big wide receiver or a smallish more modern NFL tight end?
Honestly, it doesn’t matter.
The way Chan Gailey operates, what Enunwa is, becomes irrelevant. The only thing the Jets care about is how defensive coordinators get headaches from worrying about such a guy who makes a far from large statistical dent in the box score.
And this is the key: Enunwa changes the formation advantage in favor of the Jets.
If he’s out there with three other wide receivers and the defense matches with a dime, Enunwa will do major damage in the run blocking game. If he’s out there and the defense considers him a tight end and throws a backer or a safety on him, Enunwa then becomes a plus matchup in the passing game.
He can also run with the best of them as seen in overtime of Week 16 against the New England Patriots:
He’s a guy who’ll serve as the No. 3 or 4 WR while also serving as the No. 2 TE in passing situations.
He’s a beautiful option to always have at your disposal. As long as he doesn’t drop critical passes – like we saw in Week 17 in Buffalo last January – he’ll be a valuable piece to the offense.
