Cross this propect off the Jets list

One of the Jets off-season needs is clearly running back. However, one top tailback prospect has probably been crossed off their draft board.

According to a television report, Cal running back Marshawn Lynch has been accused of sexual assault and domestic violence by an Oakland woman. The Oakland DA is looking over the case.

According to KCBS, the woman, who was reportedly Lynch's former girlfriend, as been granted a restraining order. The woman claims that Lynch beat her up and sexually assulted her on December 13 in Oakland.

Lynch is considered one of the top running backs in the draft, and could have been a consideration for the Jets with their first round pick. But now, it's not likely. Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum refuses to pick players with these kind of backgrounds. But in all fairness, he these are just allegations at this point, and he wasn't been indicted of any crimes.

But the Jets chances of picking Lynch seem slim.
