Jets setup private workout for OLB

The Jets continue to do their due diligence on 3-4 outside linebacker prospects in the draft. They have set-up a private workout for an ACC linebacker from New Jersey.

Wake Forest defensive end Jyles Tucker, who hails from Morristown, New Jersey, will conduct a private workout for the Jets.

The 6-3, 268-pound Tucker, was moved around on the Demon Decons defensive line, including a stint at tackle, but the Jets project him to the 3-4 outside linebacker.

Expect the Jets to add a couple of 3-4 pass rushing outside linebackers in the 2007 draft, and perhaps Tucker could be one of them.
