Jets Roster Analysis: Will Tommy Bohanon Improve?

New, comments
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 Tommy Bohanon.

Name: Tommy Bohanon

Number: 40

Year With Jets: 4th

Projected Role: Competing for fullback job

His 2015: Bohanon recovered from his 2014 broken collarbone and played in all 16 games after beating out Julian Howsare in training camp for a roster spot. He wasn't necessarily effective, though. Bohanon has never been a stellar blocker, and he provided little as a runner (2 carries) or as a receiver (4 receptions).

2016 will be a success if: Bohanon makes the team and develops into a quality blocker. It probably would be too much to ask him to become a weapon as a runner or a receiver. He could conceivably at least provide help in the instances where the Jets decide to have a lead blocker in the backfield

Odds of making the roster: Probable (75-99%)
