New York Jets NFL Draft Deep Dive – 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

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.

New York Jets UDFA Profile – DB Shyheim Carter

Much like he has with the offensive line, Joe Douglas has been busy overhauling the team’s secondary. Pierre Desir, Quincy Wilson, Bryce Hall, and Ashtyn Davis are just some of the new faces brought into the unit previously known as New Jack City. The Jets will need much improved play from this unit as the Duck Hodges and Matt Barkley’s have been replaced with Russell Wilson and Patrick Mahomes’ on the schedule in 2020. After that draft, Douglas went to the NFL talent factory that is the University of Alabama and brought in Shyheim Carter as a UDFA to see if he can help this unit.

New York Jets NFL Draft Deep Dive – La’Mical Perine

Running back La’Mical Perine proved Gators don’t sweat as he tweeted “Patience”­—a virtue he possesses both on and off the field—while awaiting his turn to be chosen in the NFL Draft.

Many suspected Gang Green would address the position due to lack of depth and Le’Veon Bell’s questionable return for the 2021 season.  With their first pick (No. 120) in the fourth round, the New York Jets selected the bruising runner out of Florida.

The position of edge has been a decade long need for the Jets.  With Jordan Jenkins the only pulse they have currently and him likely walking in 2021, the Jets have to exercise all kinds of dart throws to fill the position. Bryce Huff is an intriguing UDFA that could have shot to make the roster…
