When the Jets took Jabari Zuniga late in the third round of April’s NFL Draft, it was to address a need for an edge rusher. In free agency, general manager Joe Douglas did not pursue a high-end pass rusher, even though the Jets were linked with the likes of Jadeveon Clowney.
“Very few rookies are able to make an immediate impact as a pass rusher at the NFL level. While Zuniga gained a handful of experience playing on the edge at Florida, he is expected to be utilized more in a hybrid type role that will require him to play inside/outside,” Serritella told Sports Illustrated’s Jets Country.
“However, due to the lack of personnel that currently exists on the roster, New York will need to find mismatches in certain pass-rush situations that can take advantage of his strength and burst off the ball snap.”
