The New York Jets Select Oday Aboushi with the 141st Pick of the 2013 NFL Draft


The first selection by the Jets on day 3 is in, and it is Oday Aboushi, guard from Virginia. The Jets brought him in for a visit during the days leading up to the draft.

We profiled Aboushi a few days ago, take a look at what we had to say about him by clicking here.

If you look at my profile, I talk about how he might not be the most “NFL ready” lineman that I have ever seen, and I stick by that.  But, how long have we been talking about depth issues on the offensive line?  We have had pee-wee leaguers to come in if any starters were injured.  Depth on the offensive line is like having pitchers in baseball.

You can never have to much depth.  For that, we have to give John Idzik credit for this move.  Excellent job, and I would actually give it an A-.  Drafting for a need is important in my book, and that is what the Jets did today.

What do you guys think of the pick? Grade below.

    i thought between colon, winters, the new fa (peterson?) and ugly we had enough depth. i expect schladwhatever is history and ugly may well be gone too. we’ll see. i guess he’s strictly going by bpa, even at this point. i woulda thought they’d go wr or safety before another lineman

      I was a little surprised too, but like I said in the piece, depth is depth to me.
