- Oday Aboushi: 5th Round Selection
The NY Jets went back to an area in need of depth in the 5th round of the NFL draft, offensive line. They selected Virginia left tackle Oday Aboushi.

PICK: Fifth round (141st overall)
PLAYER: Oday Aboushi
POSITION: Offensive tackle

Aboushi was a three-year starter at Virginia, the first year at right tackle and the latter two at left tackle. He graded out at 90 percent last season, according to the Virginia coaches.

- W2W4: Day 3 of draft
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets have only three remaining picks — fifth round (141 overall), sixth round (178) and seventh round (215). Barring something crazy, the storylines on the final day of the draft won’t focus on the actual selections. See:

- May need more chairs in QB room
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — The Jets have so many quarterbacks on the roster that it’s easy to lose track. On Friday night, GM John Idzik joked he may add one or two more. The fanbase isn’t laughing.
As a public service, we’re here to provide a refresher. So let’s run down the depth chart, including the contract situation for each:
Mark Sanchez — He’s due a fully guaranteed base salary of $8.25 million, plus a $500,000 workout bonus. The bonus is pro-rated daily, meaning he makes approximately $12,500 every day he shows up for a workout.

- OL Winters has something to prove
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Brian Winters has always lived by the motto, “I still have something to prove.”
“Where I’m from, we weren’t spoon-fed, we fed ourselves,” said Winters, a versatile offensive lineman out of Kent State who was selected by the New York Jets in the third round (No. 72 overall) of the 2013 NFL draft. “So I guess I do have a chip on my shoulder.”
Winters, who grew up in the small town of Hudson, Ohio, played tackle in college, but is expected to move over to guard, where he’ll push Vladimir Ducasse for the starting spot on the right side.

- Smith will need to improve rushing skills
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — New York Jets GM John Idzik said that one of the reasons he drafted Geno Smith in the second round was the West Virginia quarterback’s ability to run read-option plays.
“Certainly when you have someone with his athleticism, his elusiveness, that is certainly a fine trait for a quarterback, so that comes into play, yes,” Idzik said Friday night.
The numbers, however, show that Smith is going to need a lot of improvement in that area.

- New suit, new beginning for Smith
No, Geno Smith did not bring two suits to New York. So after what might have been the longest night in his life, his mother Tracy Sellers woke up, went out the morning after her own birthday and bought her quarterback son another outfit nice enough to wear to Round 2 at Radio City Music Hall.
“Obviously it’s tough to sit in the green room and deal with all those emotions,” Smith said. “But we were able to clear our minds and kind of regroup and get back here today and just enjoy the moment.
- Third round: G Brian Winters
PICK: Third round (10th in round, 72nd overall)
PLAYER: Brian Winters
SCHOOL: Kent State
WEIGHT: 320 pounds
What it means: The Jets needed offensive line help — desperately. They like his versatility. Winter started 14 games last season at left tackle, but he probably will be moved inside to guard. We’re not talking about Chance Warmack or Jonathan Cooper here, but he’s regarded as a safe pick with decent upside — assuming he can make the transition to guard.

PLAYER: Geno Smith
SCHOOL: West Virginia
WEIGHT: 218 pounds
What it means: There’s a new quarterback in town, casting immediate doubt on Mark Sanchez’s future. This is a game-changer, with GM John Idzik putting his stamp on the organization.
