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


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.
