    Rutgers Anthony Davis holds private workout for 11 teams including Jets

    The Jets have been checking out a few of these top lineman haven't they?

    Less than three weeks after Anthony Davis was a no-show during Rutgers’ pro day drills, the offensive tackle flashed his skills for NFL representatives on Tuesday. The projected first-round pick held a private workout for 11 teams, including the Jets and Giants.

    The 6-5, 323-pound Davis, who pulled a disappearing act on March 10 because he wasn’t feeling well and had a tweaked hamstring, ran through all the requisite positional drills and took part in one-on-one meetings with team reps, his agent Sunny Shah said.

    “He did all the things that the teams wanted him to do today,” Shah told The Star-Ledger. “He’s 100 percent healthy. A sore hammy was the reason he wasn’t able to work out (three weeks ago).”

    Shah confirmed that Davis, who worked out at an indoor facility a few minutes from campus since the Bubble was down, has “a number of meetings and visits set up” in the run-up to the NFL Draft April 22-24. Davis, who declared for the draft after his junior year, isn't expected to slip past the top half of the first round.

    Shah also dispelled the notion that his client needed to make amends for not working out for scouts during Rutgers’ pro day.

    “I think that was overblown,” Shah said. “It was something that we planned on doing the whole time. Anthony’s athletic ability, agility and mobility are tremendous at that size. This is what we planned on doing the whole time. And (missing positional drills) had no bearing. Not at all.”

    Doak Walker Award winner Toby Gerhart held a private workout for the Jets Monday, according to a report in the National Football Post. The 6-1, 235-pound former Stanford RB, who was a Heisman Trophy finalist, worked out for Jets' RB coach Anthony Lynn at Stanford.

    Very funny and very true!

    I'd be happy with Davis at #29 if he somehow fell but I don't see it happening.

    Thought he lived in south Jersey and that was why he had a moustache and why he was allowed to work from home as GM rather than go to Hofstra every day. Also why he always looked a little molester and was intimidated by any other team and never called a bluff, like when the Bears made him trade up the night before the draft to get D-slob and then he tried to move from that spot #4 to #2 because Belicheck feinted he was moving up to #3. Guy is an excellent scout but was a god-awful GM, Mike Nugent, Doug Jolley fiascos every single year.

    I love you Tanny.
