New York Jets sign 6'8" monster with 'freakish ability' to play with Aaron Rodgers.

Zach Kuntz, a superb tight end, fell to the final round of the NFL Draft.

The New York Jets gambled on his upside with one of the penultimate picks, adding him to Aaron Rodgers' loaded receiving core.

Kuntz played little at Penn State before moving to Old Dominion and suffered a knee injury that restricted his last season.

Despite being 6'8, Kuntz set position records in the vertical jump, broad jump, and three-cone drill at the Scouting Combine a few weeks ago.

While that's a nice profile, his lack of collegiate output dropped him to the fourth round, but the Jets are enthusiastic about him.

Kuntz began training with head coach Robert Saleh this weekend after signing his contract. "Always take the freak that loves ball," Saleh added. Usually they work. He's freakishly talented and loves football, so we simply have to work with him."

"He tested through the roof," said general manager Joe Douglas. "The size, speed, length, jump, just everything and another guy who may have been drafted a little sooner if not for the injury this year."
