JetNation Prospect Preview: Central Michigan CB Sean Bunting

A few weeks ago the Jets brought in Sean Bunting for a visit, he was a topic of conversation on the last episode of JetNation Radio.  Bunting fits a necessary role that every NFL team is looking for as a man cover style defensive back.  Gregg Williams likes to dial-up his blitz schemes so acquiring a corner with sticky man to man skills certainly fits a role in his various defensive packages.

Name: Sean Bunting

Position: Cornerback

School: Central Michigan

HT/WT: 6′ 195 LBS.

Hands: 9 5/8′

Arm Length: 31 3/4″

NFL Combine Results:

40 Vertical Broad jump Bench
4.42 41.5 126” 14

 

Strengths: Exceptional man press skills, can mirror his opponent and stay in the receivers back pocket.  Tracks the ball well while in the air and positions himself correctly to defend 50/50 balls.  Shows quick feet and fluid hips in his back pedal.  Perfect fit for man to man and cover 3 zone.  Sean prides himself on being a student of the game, as he prepares for his opponents he makes time to study film and have his own mental game plan.  Bunting filled up the stat line with 104 tackles, 9 interceptions, 4 Forced Fumbles and 15 Pass deflections in his career.

 

Weakness:  Thin body style who struggles against bigger more physical Wide Receivers and could have a difficult time shedding blocks in run support.

Current Draft predictions:

CBS Sports: 51st overall

Bleacher Report: 41st overall

NFL.com: 105th overall

PFF.com: 79th overall

Chad Reuter’s NFL.com mock that has Bunting going 105th overall is in fact to the Jets, as was the case in our JetNation.com mock draft in which we had Bunting going to the Jets with pick number 68.

Grew up in North Jersey about 20 minutes away from the stadium. Residing in Suffern, Ny. Patiently waiting for our next Lombardi trophy. Go Jets!
