    How about Ricky Sapp as an OLB for the Jets?

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Defensive End | Clemson | SR Ricky Sapp
    Height: 6-3⅞ | Weight: 252 | 40-Time: 4.70

    Official Bio

    Strengths:
    Outstanding athleticism --- A lanky frame with really long arms --- Fast and explosive with a burst --- Agile with great change of direction and balance --- A terror bending off the edge --- Excellent range --- Does a terrific job in pursuit and closes in a hurry --- Uses his hands well --- A reliable tackler and powerful hitter --- Smooth with fluid hips and is comfortable in space --- Offers both positional and schematic versatility.

    Weaknesses:
    Doesn't have the bulk that you look for --- Inconsistent and motor runs hot and cold --- Obvious strength deficiencies --- Does not hold up well against the run --- Struggles to disengage from blocks --- Can be too aggressive --- Questionable instincts --- Doesn't have much experience dropping in coverage --- Wasn't overly productive --- Durability issues.

    Notes:
    Was a three-year starter for the Tigers --- Named 2nd Team All-ACC as a senior, the first time he garnered all-conference notice --- Was also a track and basketball standout in high school --- 2008 season ended prematurely when he tore the ACL in his right knee and was hampered by other injuries throughout his college career --- Backed up the late Gaines Adams early on and was expected to follow in his footsteps but never quite lived up to that potential --- Talented prospect who may be a better athlete than football player --- Classic 'tweener whose best fit might come as an outside linebacker in a 3-4 front --- Could be better pro than college player if the light comes on and he is utilized properly.
