    Are there serious character concerns with Washington or something?

    these are the rounds you can get quality offensive linemen. this is why you don't take warmack in the first round. the jets got 2 pretty good linemen in rounds 3 and 5. they really needed a backup tackle. the line has needed fresh blood for years.

    And people have to realize the Jets WR corps is not as bad as people think. They get Holmes and Hill back, they have Kerley. I have a feeling they will bring back Braylon Edwards

    I like mean OL. Both Winters and Aboushi play with a little bit of a mean streak.

    Exactly.. give me a high graded OL like this who has a great chance to contribute now instead of an average WR who probably wont be good. Now we take stud weapons next year early.

    From Nov 2012:

    Rising Players:

    Oday Aboushi Offensive Tackle Virginia Senior
    6050 (Estimated) 315 (Estimated) 5.25 (Estimated) Potential 1st / 2nd Round Pick
    Rarely do I have the chance to write about a legit NFL prospect from Brooklyn, New York, so being able to include Aboushi on this list brings me great pleasure. Beginning his third season as a starter for Virginia in 2012, Oday was viewed as a smart and competitive blocker with a chance to be a fourth or fifth round pick. However, Oday’s play has improved dramatically. Displaying better feet and athleticism than previously, he has made it look easy pulling and lead blocking effectively on outside runs this season. His ability to pass block with great base combines with his feet so that he can slide and shuffle easily to protect the edge vs good pass rushers. With Aboushi’s feet, athleticism, ability to block with base and strength he has everything it takes to become a quality starting left tackle in the NFL.

    NFP Final report:

    SUMMARY - Oday Aboushi received a strong amount of media hype heading into the Senior Bowl, but film study makes it clear that his struggles in Mobile were more an accurate depiction of his abilities as a player than they were a huge disappointment. He has a thick frame and the measurables to play inside and out, but is clearly more suited to play guard because of his general stiffness and lack of foot quickness. He does possess excellent strength at the POA, but often neutralizes his own strength by being late to attack with his hands and playing too upright. Although he is able to consistently lock onto his man with his hands inside, he tends to grab the defender's jersey and leaves himself susceptible to penalties. While he clearly doesn't belong in day one or even day two discussions, he should be off the board by early day three as teams will love his size and natural power. If he can become quicker getting his hands out and more efficient with his footwork and leverage, he could develop into a starting guard at the next level.

    another good value pick at the spot in the draft by our new GM that appears to actually have a plan and know what he is doing...

    his predecessor would have already awarded this pick to Rex and the next two to Westy as trinkets with no value

    Good job by Idzik

    Agreed. But I would still like to see a large TE who can block AND catch. That may have to wait until next year, though.

    And we drafted Jordan White last year and have a couple of other undrafted rookie FA WRs from last year (and will get some this year).

    and thanks to JI for having this thread so I can see who the Jets select without having to watch Rich "the Retard" Eisen dredge up SAR-like comedy material about Geno Smith

    I thought Hayden was killing people in practice.

    Tony Pauline's analysis:

    Oday Aboushi
    School: Virginia
    Position: T
    Bio: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors as a senior. Primarily lined up at left tackle, though he spent time on the right side as a sophomore.
    Positive: Terrific pass blocker with nice size. Agile, bends his knees and gets leverage on opponents. Effectively uses blocking angles and displays good range off the edge. Fluid sliding out, keeps his feet moving, and stays square. Works well with teammates. Keeps his head on a swivel and easily anchors at the point of attack. Plays with balance and body control and seals pass rushers from the action.

    Negative: Does not block with a killer mentality. Average run-blocking strength and struggles to finish the play. Gets lazy with his hands and slow getting into defenders.

    Analysis: Aboushi has been a consistent left tackle for Virginia the past two years and is one of the better pass protectors in the 2013 NFL draft. He needs to pick up the intensity as a run blocker, but Aboushi comes with upside and has starting possibilities for the next level.

    We have Reuland for that! He did well without a camp for us last year.

    But let me ask you draftniks - would someone like Swope or D'arick Rogers at WR been more impactful there?
    They will be there in rd6. Dont wish for players you will be disappointed. Wish for BPA. We got one who will be a starter for us in the future. If you can o that in rd5 thn that's a success.
