Jets tryout guard Eric Young

The Jets brought in former Tennessee Volunteer guard Eric Young for a tryout. Here is what Scouts Inc. had to say about him when he came out of school -

"He has longer arms and does a good job of using them to steer pass rushers," according to Scouts Inc.. "He displays adequate initial pop with hand punch and has a strong upper body. Young possesses the short-area quickness and upper body strength to develop into a solid all-around starting guard in the NFL, assuming he fully recovers. Young is a good value if available in the fourth round."

Young blew his knee out during his senior season, and this led to him going undrafted last year. He signed with Cleveland as an undrafted free agent, but didn't make the team.
