While the offseason can be a tough time for fans, it can also afford some great chances to interact with players. With that in mind, we're proud to announce that on 1:30PM ET Friday, TheJetsBlog will host our second in a series of "Ask Me Anything" Q&As right here on TJB with Jets Defensive Tackle Kenrick Ellis. After discussing this with Kenrick, Kenrick is thrilled to come on the site and answer your questions.
Kenrick was drafted by the Jets in the third round of the 2011 NFL Draft out of Hampton University. In the last two seasons, Ellis started twice in 2012 and accumulated 17 tackles and his role has gradually increased as he's honed his game against the run, with his one of his best games coming against the Steelers in replacement of the then-injured Sione Pouha.
Alongside new teammate Antonio Garay, Ellis now stands to be a major contributor in the center of the defensive line and will work with fellow emerging linemen Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples to make the group a force to be reckoned around the NFL in 2013 and beyond.
Again, we're very excited and hope to see you right here tomorrow on TJB for a Q&A with Kenrick Ellis. We'll be using CoverItLive to run the event so you can submit questions for Kenrick and he will answer as many as he can in the time allotted.
