Jets Draft Spotlight: Marvin McNutt


This afternoon, we take a look at a wide receiver that the Jets met with at the Senior Bowl. He’s a big target, and could be an interesting mid-late round value, in a very deep group of wide receivers. Spotlight, WR Marvin McNutt, University of Iowa.

For a full scouting report, visit our friends at nflmocks.com

He measures in at 6’3″ 216 pounds.  He ran a 4.54 40 yard dash.

In 2011, he recorded 82 receptions for 1315 yards and 12 TDs

Pros: He makes a lot of clutch catches.  As a former QB, he has good awareness as to what is going on out in the field, sits well in the zone, gets open on broken plays, that type of thing.

Cons: He struggles at times when running routes over the middle, as well as running routes when he is a decoy as opposed to the intended target.  He is also an inconsistent blocker.

Take a look at the highlights, and you be the judge:

He’s clearly got talent. He’s big and he has good hands. Marvin McNutt could be a good value to the Jets in the mid to late rounds.

    I think you aren’t giving him a chance. I think late round is an insult.

     Maybe.  I think mid-late rounds if he is going to be Jet, because I don’t see them going WR early.
     
    Thanks for reading

     @AlanSchechter I don’t either. I think they need to address their LB(pass rush), Safety and O-line spots first. I think their O-line gets pushed around too much.  Even the D-line does too… they may wanna think about getting a big DT so that the LB can get through to the QB. They didn’t seem so consistent last year, and if their is no pressure, you can bet that their secondary is going to get lit up.

     Totally agree, pas rush first.  Safety and O-line too, but it sounds like they aren’t going to look o-line, at least not early.

     @AlanSchechter Seeming as how we are talking about guys from Iowa, Mark Zusevics may be worth trying out at OT in late round 5-7. He tore his pectoral at the combine, but if he can make a good recovery, I think he has potential. He is 6-5 and 303 lbs

      I’ll have to read up on that guy, maybe we can write him up here at the Jet Press. Suggestions are always welcome..thanks!
