    NY Jets 2013 7th Round (215) Pick: FB Tommy Bohanon

    Tommy Bohanon
    6'1 - 246 lbs
    Wake Forest

    STRENGTHS - At 6'1" and 246 pounds, Bohanon is well built with good size and bulk for the position. He is a highly competitive player who has been a very productive blocker at Wake Forest. He is not used as a running back. As a blocker, he has consistently shown the willingness to attack the linebacker in the hole and can deliver punishing hits at the LOS. When he plays low with good pad level and leverage, he can eliminate the linebacker from the play. He is a very effective blocker in all areas of the field. He has been a productive lead blocker from a fullback alignment, making blocks in the middle of the line, on the edge and down the field. When he blocks with good technique in pass protection, he can stand up blitzers and stop them in their tracks. He has very good hands catching the ball out of the backfield and is an instinctive runner with the ball who follows his blockers well. He does a good job of securing the ball first, and then turning up the field. Bohanon is an all effort player who keeps his legs churning until he is on the ground.

    WEAKNESSES - Even with his great size, Bohanon is not as consistent a blocker as he has the ability to be. He has a tendency of standing upright when he delivers the initial blow while lead blocking, and it causes him to struggle to stay on and maintain blocks through the entire play. While he has tremendous functional strength, he does not consistently show it on his lead blocks and often just ties his man up instead of blowing them out of the hole. There are times when he tries to keep hold of man so to negate that player. As a pass blocker, he doesn't play with a lot of consistency because he struggles to be technically sound with his base. When he gets away from his technique, he doesn't move laterally well and reaches and lunges with straight legs. While he is a good pass catcher, he will never be an impact player with the ball in his hands and isn't going to be a weapon in any area other than as a blocking fullback.

    SUMMARY - Bohanon has developed into a solid, productive fullback at Wake Forest. He is a thickly built fullback who has the body and physicality to be a punishing lead blocker in the NFL. In order for this to happen, he must play with a strong, athletic base. Bohanon must play with good pad level and leverage to take full advantage of his physical tools. He has good ability to effectively block out in space, both via cut-blocks and straight on lead blocks, when he stays over feet and under control. He has shown the ability to be an asset catching the ball out of the backfield, and it allows him to contribute in other ways other than lead blocking, although he will never be a big play guy with the ball in his hands. Overall, Bohanon warrants fifth-round consideration by a team that uses a traditional fullback and if he can improve his consistency of technique he should develop into a solid starting fullback fairly quickly.

    36 bench reps at the combine, can line up at tight end. I don't know much about him but he can't be worse than Lex Hilliard. Hopefully this means Hilliard is released.

    He reportedly played a ton of H-Back for Wake Forest for whatever it's worth.

    Well... he sounds like a pretty good player from the write up.

    Makes sense to replace Hilliard with somebody cheaper who probably will be at least as good.

    The fact that the Jets didn't draft a WR is a clear indication they want to go into the season with Holmes and Hill starting on the sides and Kerley in the slot.

    Offensive linemen, a big back in Ivory and a big bruiser of a FB... Pretty clear that the Jets want to get back to their ground and pound ways isn't it?

    Idzik's son plays WR for Wake Forest if that means anything.

    For what it's worth, the ESPN guys loved the pick. They love his versatility and said he can do it all. Pollion really like it.

    Reminds me, a little bit, of the old 49ers FB - Thomas Rathman - great blocker, good hands out of the backfield, and can get some tough yards.

    GO JETS!!!

    I like his versatility. Plus, he is an upgrade over Hilliard.

    Not a big fan of this pick considering, he could've gone undrafted and Jets could've signed better players at position of need. Oh well. Maybe he'll be a folk hero like Kuhn from the Packers getting tough yards and making the right plays.

    I can understand some people wanting to go other positions, but I love this pick. This kid is the goods.

    He wasn't much of a runner but I always thought he could be used more on short yardage.

    The best part is he can block,something our backs have not been able to do in recent years.

    And it gives us another check down option. Something we haven't had at all other then LT. And you saw how much that helped even with LT being old. This is important because its a safety valve, and because it allows our other check down option (the RBs) to go out on routes and still have a safety valve.
