    Ryan attends Gabbert's pro-day...why?

    Coach Ryan attended Gabberts (Missouri's) pro-day. While Aldon Smith DE is also ranked as a top 20 pick, I am not sure if he worked out or not but it would be interesting because several mocks have him listed as a top 15-16 selection, which means the Jets would have to move up to get him without trading players or other years picks.....

    So the next thought I had was - well maybe he's scouting a WR - like the Jets did with Cotchery when Rivers had his pro-day. But Missouri doesn't have any WR's in this years draft..see below:

    Scouting the competition?

    Rex was probably there for Gabbert's teammate LB Aldon Smith who apparently looked sensational.

    probably because there was a dominant front seven defender named Aldon Smith also working out...

    no doubt about it

    the jets are looking at defensive players with their early picks.q.b. is not on their agenda.

    Gabbert will not be a backup in the NFL. Most likely scenario: Rex was there for other reasons, ie - Aldon Smith

    As for the backup QB situation, this makes more sense:

    Possibly. But right now, as with Mallett and Newton - he's got nothing but potential :rolleyes:

    Question for Bit

    Rex at Mizzou...we don't need a Qb,and Smith will be gone by time we pick. Who are some other Missouri players that he may be looking at? Not familiar with their personnel.

    we'd have to mortgage the draft to get up high enough to get smith who i think doesn't make farther than 12 at best.
