Why Quincy Enunwa is now an indispensable Jet

As the Jets get close to training camp, I am going to examine the roster and give you my top 25 players. Each weekday, we will reveal another person on the list, leading right into camp. I am not including rookies on this list because I do not feel it is possible to fully evaluate them before they play a game. I also am not including Ryan Fitzpatrick on the list because he is not technically a Jet at this time.

Last year’s ranking: Not ranked

Position: Wide receiver

Age: 24

How acquired: Selected in the sixth round of the 2014 Draft

Years left on contract: 2

2016 Salary Cap figure: $525,000

Looking back at 2015: The 2014 draft pick was an afterthought entering training camp last year. Even wide receivers coach Karl Dorrell admitted recently he was unsure Enunwa even would make the team. But offensive coordinator Chan Gailey fell in love with his 6-foot-2, 225-pound size and the flexibility it gave the offense, and Enunwa gained a big role in 2015.

The only skill players to play more on offense last season were Brandon Marshall, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Eric Decker and Chris Ivory. Enunwa was in on 45 percent of the Jets’ offensive snaps. He finished the year with 22 catches for 315 yards, and had a huge role in the running game as a blocker, sometimes working as a tight end and an H-back.

After serving a four-game suspension in mid-year, Enunwa really came on at the end of the season. He had four catches for 49 yards in a win over the Cowboys in December, including a clutch 24-yard catch on a third-and-14 in the fourth quarter that set up the go-ahead touchdown for the Jets. He followed that up a week later with 48-yard catch against the Patriots in overtime that set up the game-winning touchdown.

Outlook for 2016: Enunwa earned himself more playing time in 2016 by the way he played last year. He figures to start off the season in the same role, playing in the slot with some time as H-back and tight end.

When Devin Smith returns from ACL surgery, that might cut into Enunwa’s playing time if Gailey wants to get Smith on the outside with Decker in the slot. But Gailey is very creative with his personnel packages and surely will find a way to work Enunwa into games because of his value as a blocker.
