After watching him play last season with the New York Jets, there’s no question that Quincy Enunwa is one of the best upcoming receivers in the NFL. Can he keep getting better?

Last season, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa showed off a lot of talent and proved that he’s got the skills to compete with the best defenses in the NFL. However, some wonder if this was just a one-and-done year or the start of something special with the New York Jets.

At 6-2 and 225 pounds, Enunwa has the build to play tight end or wide receiver, and he’s got the skills to match. This is a great feature because if an injury were to occur that made him slower, then the team could just switch him over to tight end. Also, the team needs a tight end, and if they can’t find a good one in the next two years, then they could just put him there.

Last season, he totaled up 58 receptions, 857 receiving yards and four receiving touchdowns, and these stats did not come easily. The Jets had a lot of poor quarterback play in 2016, and with that, it is pretty hard to get anything positive at the wide receiver position.

Enunwa was able to jump pretty well for overthrown passes, and since he was so big, he was also able to box out defensive backs and make some phenomenal receptions over them. These abilities don’t usually go away in just a year, and unless he gets an injury, there should be no reason for this talented receiver to get any worse.

This guy is set to get a whole lot more attention next season, and if he keeps building on his strengths, he should be able to move up to a 1,000-yard receiver in the next year or so. You can expect to see Enunwa in multiple Pro Bowls in the coming years.

For next season, however, he will put up an even better season considering the Jets can go nowhere but up. No matter who is his quarterback, Enunwa’s stock is going to rise in what could be his best season yet.
