FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- The pick: Quincy Enunwa, wide receiver, Nebraska

My take: This makes three wide receivers on the third day of the draft. Enunwa (pronounced: uh-NOON-wuh) has terrific size at 6-foot-2, 225 pounds, ideal for a West Coast offense. He's solidly built and has long arms (32¾ inches). His production in college was modest, although he scored 12 touchdowns last season. That includes a 99-yarder against Georgia. He set career highs with 51 receptions and 753 yards, finishing his career with only 115 catches. Enunwa ran the 40 in the mid-4.4s at his pro day. Like most of the Jets' picks, he's known for strong character. He was a 2013 team captain and a leader in the community.

Sending a message: You can bet there are uneasy feelings in the homes of Clyde Gates, David Nelson, Greg Salas and maybe even Stephen Hill -- the veteran receivers not named Eric Decker and Jeremy Kerley on the Jets' roster. By drafting three wideouts, the front office has sent a clear message. This hardly comes as a surprise. At the league meetings in March, Rex Ryan all but guaranteed they'd select multiple receivers.
