Rex Burkhead, RB, Nebraska
Height: 5-10. Weight: 214. Hand: 9.68
Really love this guy . He is an absolute baller . Had a bad combine that really hurt his stock along with an injury the cost him to miss 7 games of the season . He have very good numbers averaging 6.9 yards per carry on his way to 675 yards and five touchdowns last season . In 2011 Rex was an All-Big Ten selection for his 2011 season averaging 4.8 yards per carry with 1,357 yards and 15 touchdowns . His fulls college stat can be found on the link below.
I have been on the Burkhead bandwagon for a while now , and had him in my 1st mock of the year .
Burkhead has recently been in the news but for all the right reason . His relationship with little Jack Hoffman , the poor kid with brain cancer has honestly restored some of my faith in mankind. He is a great football player and and even better human being . We could really use a guy like that in our locker room.
Should this be the type of guy the Jets draft ? I would have no problem using our 6th round. He has got the heart this team could use a little more on . Thoughts
