New York Jets NFL Draft Deep Dive – Jabari Zuniga

James Kuntz with a deep dive on New York Jets third round pick, Jabari Zuniga

Perhaps the most unpopular Jets Draft Pick of Day 2 is Florida Defensive Lineman Jabari Zuniga. Zuniga is simultaneously an intriguing and confusing prospect: despite being listed as an EDGE Rusher, Zuniga is far more effective on the interior. Adding even more complexity to his evaluation is the fact that, when lined up as a 4-3 end, Zuniga’s above-average explosiveness is often nullified by his inability to consistently react to the snap on time.

Finally, although Zuniga possesses the strength to consistently cave the pocket with his bull rush, he rarely sacks the Quarterback. The question is inevitable: how should we view a player with such anomalous versatility and evident physical talent, who consistently fails to show up on the stat sheet.

First, it’s worth examining how he performs in the two most important phases of play for defensive linemen: pass rush and run defense.

New York Jets NFL Draft Deep Dive – OL Cameron Clark

Joe Belic with a deep dive on New York Jets 4th round pick, OL Cameron Clark

The Jets had some question marks in terms of run blocking going into the draft but addressed the issue with two absolute maulers: Mekhi Becton and Cameron Clark.

Clark, the 129th overall pick in the fourth round of the NFL draft, played left tackle all four seasons for the UNC Charlotte 49ers, but it’s widely believed he’s best suited to play guard at the next level.

One part brain and one part brawn, Clark is the perfect combination of smarts and down-right nastiness; his sheer will to dominate defenders is at the heart of his game.  A natural-born leader, his stacked resume includes Dean’s list, offensive MVP, and team captain.  Extremely durable to boot, Clark started 31 straight games during his collegiate career.
