Jets Select IK Enemkpali With 210th Pick in 2014 NFL Draft

Bradley Leeb-US PRESSWIRE

The Jets used the 210th pick of the Draft and the third of their four sixth rounders on IK Enemkpali, a defensive end from Louisiana Tech.

At 261 pounds, Enemkpali will likely be converted to outside linebacker in Rex Ryan's defense. This marks the first time the Jets have used a Draft pick on an outside linebacker in Ryan's six Drafts with the team.

The word you hear about Enemkpali's game is physical. He seems to like contact a lot. He doesn't necessarily have the kind of explosion you want at the position. He is purely a developmental player. One could assume Rex Ryan and the defensive coaching staff loved the violence with which he plays. I'm just spitballing here, but maybe they think he could shed a little weight and move inside at linebacker, perhaps as another Bart Scott. We'll have to wait and see.

This was the second of two consecutive picks the Jets held.
