He sounds like our new rob turner.

Considering Howard is in on a 1-yr deal and the fact that Colon and Peterman are old we are going to need to solidify the line for the future. Hard to argue considering that other skill players will still drop into the 6th.
One thing about every Jets pick thus far, they have all been rated pretty highly by CBS Sports. I see other teams picking players who around the 65.0 rating and Aboushi has a 78.0 in the 5th. You can't argue with a good line because if you win the battle up front then your QB/running game is set.
key here is versatility. he can play RT or guard. that's huge. also said he's smart. high character. that's the theme of this draft. they clearly are trying to remake the culture of the lockerroom.
i could easily see them getting rid of sanchez and holmes, eating it this year and basically starting with an entirely new dymanic.
That is true. All of the Jets draft picks, with the possible exception of Richardson, were of high value at the time they were drafted.
I remember early in the college season, he was being projected in the 1st round. Now he was never 1st round good, but could be a quality lineman. Plus the last LT from Virginia the Jets took worked out.
High graded, versatile lineman in round 5. Smart pick by Idzik. By taking guys like this who can possibly start it helps us focus on taking weapons next year instead of reaching on one now.
Idzik is the man
So far, we've added two bluechip talents to the defense, the consensus #1 QB in the draft and two polished OL with versatility, a mean streak, and the potential to challenge for a starting job immediately.
And there's still the possibility that someone like Swope, Washington, Kasa, Rambo, etc will be there in the 6th round.
Sweet ass haul so far
CBS pegged him as the #141 prospect...Nailed it!
STRENGTHS: Naturally large man with good overall weight distribution. Experienced at both left and right tackle. Shows at least adequate initial quickness off the snap. Gets a strong initial punch onto the defender and possesses the heavy hands to latch on and control his opponent. Extremely physical and aggressive player. Looks to dominate his target and will pancake or drive him deep downfield whenever he can. Rolls his hips into contact and keeps his legs churning to knock defenders off the ball. Good effort blocking at the second level. Solid week of practice at the Senior Bowl. Voted a team captain in 2012. Mentally tough individual, as demonstrated by the fact that he grew up a Muslim American in Brooklyn, NY.
WEAKNESSES: Relies more on his size and physicality to compensate for a lack of ideal athleticism. Lacks the light feet and balance to remain at left tackle in the NFL, struggling a bit with speed rushers and counter moves. Will over-compensate to the outside and leave open cut-back lanes between he and his guard. Will get fundamentally lazy, at times, leaning into his opponent and standing up rather than playing on the balls of his feet and with proper knee bend. Plays to and through the whistle, drawing needless penalties, at times. Less than ideal arm length for a potential tackle (32 and 7/8") and has no experience playing inside over his career.
Compares to: Breno Giacomini, OT, Seattle Seahawks -- Just as Giacomini was downgraded by some as too upright and slow-footed when he left Louisville, Aboushi has his critics. His physicality and aggression, however, will help him find a niche in the NFL if he can keep his temper from drawing too many flags.
Vlad ****ed Turner up don't forget - whiffed on a block and sent a guy crashing Turner's leg.
