    List of Draft Prospects That Have Visited Jets

    By Rich Cimini

    Here is a partial list of draft prospects that have visited the Jets. Does this mean the Jets will use their first-round pick (29th overall) on one of these players? Not necessarily.

    A year ago, the Jets didn't bring in QB Mark Sanchez for a visit. They spent a lot of time with him out in California about a month before the draft, but they did reconnect with him until draft day. I remember interviewing Sanchez about 10 days before the draft, at a promotional appearance in Manhattan, and he remarked that he hadn't heard from the Jets in what seemed like ages.

    In 2007 and 2008, the Jets did visit with their eventual first-round picks, CB Darrelle Revis and LB Vernon Gholston, at their facility. GM Mike Tannenbaum likes to tell the story about how, by chance, he met the limo driver that transported Revis to the facility, and how the driver praised Revis for being polite and friendly. Considering how that pick worked out, I'd say Tannenbaum needs to talk to more limo drivers.

    Anyway, here's the list of visitors, accumulated through various sources (in no particular order):


    TE Mickey Shuler, Jr., Penn State
    CB Patrick Robinson, Florida State
    CB Devin McCourty, Rutgers
    DT Terrance Cody, Alabama
    DT Corey Peters, Kentucky
    OLB Ricky Sapp, Clemson
    DE Jared Odrick, Penn State
    C Maurkice Pouncey, Florida
    S Major Wright, Florida
    RB Ryan Mathews, Fresno State
    OT Anthony Davis, Rutgers
    RB Montario Hardesty, Tennessee.

    The Jets have been doing their due diligence by bringing in serious draft prospects to Florham Park for a visit. (NFL teams can bring in as many as 30 non-local prospects).

    David Reed, WR, Utah
    Corey Wootton (added)
    I added Wootton....


    Corey Wootton figured to be a versatile player when it came to the draft and that's proven to be true if the list of teams the Northwestern product is visiting is any indication.

    Clubs that run 4-3 and 3-4 defenses are interested in Wootton with the draft now 13 days away. Wootton has visited Buffalo, Kansas City, New England and the New York Jets so far, according to Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post. He has trips upcoming to Cleveland and St. Louis.

    Wootton projects as a left end in a 4-3 scheme or as an end or rush linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. He's done alternate positional drills and at 6-6, 270 pounds, he has a frame where he could add weight if needed. Most impotantly, Wootton is open to doing whatever a team asks him to do.

    "I was playing with my hand on the ground but (at Northwestern) I was able to drop (into coverage) a lot," he said. "I had four interceptions in my career, so dropping into the flat with the curl is not a big issue for me and I've expressed that to teams that may be interested in me as a 3-4 linebacker possibly."

    Wootton projected as a first-round pick a year ago before tearing his ACL in an Alamo Bowl loss to Missouri. One national scout said he was shaping up to be a Top 10 selection. Now, it looks like he will be drafted in the second round, but all it takes is for one team to like him and he'd come off the board in Round 1.

    I kinda assumed Wootton would play 3-4 DE rather than 3-4 OLB.

    There's more runningbacks on that list than I'd expect. Don't know what that would say about how the team views Greene if they sign Tomlinson and then take a RB with one of our first two picks

    What 1 position that most Jet fans here think the Jets lack is missing?

    WR (except for Reed).....

    Jets being coy and in the WR stealth mode?

    The Jets are certainly high on Greene BUT we have to remember the team's scouting report on him.

    During the playoffs there was a Daily News story on how the Jets drafted him. The article quoted the scouting report which stated that because of Greene's running style there would be durability issues and potentially a short NFL career.

    It would be kind of cool to have Mickey Jr. play on the same team as his dad. Is he a better blocker and receiver than Hartsock?

    Well he has had a few injuries already. However I think that has less to do with the fact that they are working out RBs in the 2010. I think more has to do with this dominant offensive line and how great/reliable/effective the run game was. Also, having a fresh back to close out the season seemed to really work. Greene getting inured in the AFCCG had to raise a few flags. Between the 31 year old LT and question mark Leon Washington--I think its the jets due diligence to be scouting another RB.

    I think we know the Jets are going to try and get something vs nothing for Leon. With that said...LT and Greene is just not enough ammunition. We need one more stud to unleash toward the end of the season or help throughout the season as a committee back to keep everyone fresh.

    Tanny's just checking to see if he should hedge his bets at RB. Greene is in injury prone, LT's old and Leon might not even be on the team next and is coming back from a big injury.

    No our Coach aint a big believer in a WR at the top. in the mid rounds

    CB , Dline, RB ,Oline. is where he wants his talent.

    how often do we actually work out the player we end up drafting? i don't believe we ever worked out revis but we were targeting him the whole time.

    Personally I think it says a lot about how the team views LEON. Broken leg and an assh*le for an agent. Leon might be a distant memory by time our first regular season game comes around. That leaves Greene, LT, a Draft pick, and the project Chauncey Washington who might not make final cuts.

    I'd have no problem with Matthews or another "name" - LT won't have more than two years here in all likelihood, and may be replaced with young talent gradually over the span of year two. At that point it would be Greene, Draft pick from this year, and who else???

    RB will be a need sooner than later. LT isn't the "future" and Leon will probably leave. Chauncey is a project. Greene may overcome this reputation but for now he's an injury worry. If they really like someone in this draft, why not take him!

    +1 GJ: I honestly think the Jets, if the player falls to them in round 2, etc they will drop the hammer!

    They did work out Revis. Tannebaum likes to tell the story he asked Revis limo driver how Revis acted after leaving the Jets workout.
