Murphy on Schlegel

JC draft insider John Murphy on the Jets first of two third round picks - Anthony Schlegel:

"Schlegel is a near perfect fit for the Jets new staff, new scheme and new attitude or approach to players," said Murphy. "He is a blue-collar kid that is tough as nails, a throw-back type that will run through walls and be a great special teams player until he earns a spot in the starting lineup. He brings it every day, and every practice. You have to love this kids attitude, character and intangibles. If you can be the captain of the team at Air Force and then switch gears and earn the respect of the Big Ten with his all-out effort approach. The Jets new linebacker coach Bryan Cox loved this kid at the Combine."
