    Clueless idiots that have no idea who this prospect is. Calling it a Rex Ryan pick? ROFL. It's a Marty pick for sure.

    About time. We need blockers, we got them in spades in this draft and to get a FB who can catch passes out of the backfield is something we haven't had in a while, good job.

    What would you rather have in the 7th round, a FB that can be an immediate starter or a WR or TE that probably won't even make the roster?
    The latter, which would've at least been a position of need.

    Lol @ people b*tching about a 7th round pick.

    I like Bohanon. Nice choice. Now get to work on figuring out who were pick up as UDFA's.

    Looks more like an Idzik pick than Rex:

    Jake Steinberg ‏@Steiny31 1m
    #Jets have selected FB Tommy Bohanon from Wake Forest. John Idzik's son played with Bohanon at Wake. #nyj

    Sounds powerful at least - at the combine:

    35" vertical

    and 36 reps on the bench at 6 1" and 246

    AND he can catch?

    If the goal this draft was to get start-able players to fill the numerous holes on our roster, this pick is a smart move.

    23 receptions 5 TDs last year. This is a Marty FB.

    Really wanted the kid from Harvard but the Ravens took him way early.

    Can't argue with the pick. Obviously some TEs and WRs will fall out of the draft so we will probably have a decent choice among UDFA. I think this guy can add to the receivers out of the backfield. Lots of reps on bench too, pretty impressive.

    how about you address a need, such as OLB or S when you already have a fullback on the roster? majority of teams in the NFL don't even use fullbacks. this is the problem with this team, all they want to do is run the ball. that's not how it works in the NFL these days.

    i'm 100% certain this guy would have been available as a UDFA in an hour.

    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.

    Hopefully there are some TEs and WRs. Maybe the kid from Rutgers, Harrison will want to stay close to home if he is not drafted.

    We just invested in two speed backs this offseason.

    Who the f*ck wants Hilliard paving the way?
