Ricky Sapp Set to Visit Today
Clemson OLB Ricky Sapp is meeting with the Jets today, and he is writing for his hometown newspaper about his draft experience. Here’s what he mentions about the Jets prior to flying this morning to Jersey.
On Tuesday morning, I am flying out to go visit the New York Jets. I am very excited because I have never been to New York and I am ready to see what all the talk is about. I leave from the Jets and fly straight to Arizona to visit the Cardinals. I’m extremely excited, but as quietly as it’s kept … I HATE flying. I HATE airports, but it’s something I’m going to have to get over real soon.
Rich Cimini of the Daily News spoke to a scout about Sapp.
Spoke to an NFL scout today who believes Clemson DE/OLB Ricky Sapp (6-4, 252) would be an ideal fit in Rex Ryan’s 34 defense. Said the scout: “He’s a pass-rushing son of a gun.” The Jets are picking 29th, and that might be a little high for Sapp, but he has the ability to drop and cover. That has to be appealing to the Jets.
