Jets Roster Analysis: Can Quincy Enunwa Develop Into a Pass Catching Threat?

Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

As we approach the 2016 season, we are going to profile the players on the roster. Today we look at Quincy Enunwa.

Number: 81

Year With Jets: 3rd

Projected Role: H Tight End

His 2015: Enunwa started training camp on the roster bubble. After a position change to tight end and Jace Amaro's injury, he ended up having a fairly big role on offense, playing just under half the snaps. He was one of the more unheralded parts of the offense as a run blocker. His mobility put extra blocking schemes on the table. The Jets could line him up on one side and pull him at the snap to block somebody on the other side. Sticking Enunwa in this role was one of the most inspired coaching moves the Jets made. He came from a run heavy option offense in college so he knew how to block. While Enunwa did not contribute for much of the season as a receiver, he started to come on near the end of the year with some huge catches in wins against Dallas and New England.

2016 will be a success if: Enunwa provides the same value as a blocker as he did in 2015 and then develops into a decent receiver. He doesn't need to be a great option as a target. Becoming a reliable fourth or fifth option on offense would be a big help. It also seems like the difference between Enunwa being a valuable player for somebody on a sixth round rookie deal and Enunwa being a valuable player period.

Odds of making the roster: Lock (>99%)
