NFL Draft

Jets go offense in later rounds, sign UDFAs

Admin - April 27, 2013

The Gang Green kept bolstering their offensive line in later rounds, as they drafted two more linemen. OT Oday Aboushi from Virginia was selected in the fifth round (#141 overall) and OG William Campbell from Michigan was chosen in the sixth (#178 overall). In the final round, the Jets picked FB Tommy Bohanon from Wake Forest.

Aboushi, 6'5", 308 lbs, was a 3-year starter at Virginia, the first year at right tackle and the latter two at left tackle. He projects as a right tackle because he lacks the necessary athleticism to play the left side, yet you wonder if he has the strength and run-blocking ability to excel as a strong-side tackle for a team who aren't usually favourites at

Campbell, 6'5", 318 lbs, played at defensive tackle in college but will switch to the offensive line in the pros. Campbell is just another body who will be tried to replace the departed OG Matt Slauson.

Bohanon, 6'1", 246 lbs, was selected because of his versatility and pass-catching ability. He made 13 starts at fullback last season, but he evolved into an H-Back. He caught 23 passes for 208 yards and 5 TDs last season.
