NFL Draft

Jets select nine players in last four rounds

Admin - May 10, 2014

Despite having plenty of ammunition to trade up, the New York Jets decided to stay put with their draft selections and picked nine more players on Saturday.

In the fourth round the Gang Green selected two wide receivers - WR Jalen Saunders from Oklahoma and WR Shaq Evans from UCLA. The third pick in the fourth round was OT Dakota Dozier from Furman. Saunders, 5'9", 165 lbs, is a small speedster who might be the team's next punt returner. Evans, 6'1", 213 lbs, has good size and hands but lacks speed. He could be a decent possession receiver for years to come. Dozier is a raw prospect who could also play center.

LB Jeremiah George from Iowa was added in the fifth round. George, 5'11", 232 lbs, is undersized for a linebacker but very strong. He could become a solid special teams player.

Then, in the sixth round, the Gang Green drafted CB Brandon Dixon from Northwest Missouri State, WR Quincy Enunwa from Nebraska, DE IK Enemkpali from Louisiana Tech and QB Tajh Boyd from Clemson. Dixon, 5'11", 203 lbs, has good size and speed (4.41) but is very raw. He could turn into a late round steal or be cut pretty soon. Enunwa, 6'2", 225 lbs, also has good size but poor route running. He could become a decent fourth or fifth receiver on the roster. Enemkpali, 6'1", 261 lbs, is projected to play at linebacker in the NFL and could be a good fit for the Gang Green's 3-4 defense. Boyd, 6'1", 222 lbs, is small for a QB but has a strong arm. He could be #3 quarterback.

The Jets concluded their draft, selecting OLB Trevor Reilly from Utah. Reilly, 6'5", 245 lbs, is big but lack athletic abilities. He could play outside linebacker in 3-4 or DE.
