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.

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.
