- Draft close-up: OL Oday Aboushi
Previewing this weekend’s rookie minicamp, we continue to look at the Jets’ draft picks:
Player: Oday Aboushi, fifth round
Position: Offensive line
Projected impact: Aboushi played left tackle at Virginia, but another UVA alum — D’Brickashaw Ferguson — mans that spot for the Jets. Aboushi projects as a right tackle and, possibly, a guard. This will be a learning year for Aboushi, who should be able to compete for playing time in 2014.
- Draft close-up: G Will Campbell
With rookie minicamp approaching this weekend, we’re taking a closer look at the Jets’ draft picks not named Geno Smith, who already has received a ton of publicity.
Player: Will Campbell, sixth round
Projected impact: This could amount to a red-shirt year for Campbell, a defensive tackle for three-plus years at Michigan. In fact, he hasn’t played guard since his sophomore year, 2010, so there will be growing pains.

Ditka chided the Broncos for trading Tebow (last season’s playoff appearance with Peyton Manning must have slipped his mind) before turning his aim on the Jets, who released Tebow last week after one disastrous season.

- A stunner: Woody pleads for patience
Woody Johnson dropped the ‘P’ word on a group of reporters Tuesday at an NFL symposium in Philadelphia.
Playoffs? Yeah, right. Not even the ever-optimistic owner would attempt to feed that jive to the masses.
No, Johnson called for patience as his new man in charge — John Idzik — attempts to rebuild the organization after two straight seasons out of the postseason.
Frankly, it was stunning. Johnson always has been a win-now owner, fond of saying he goes into every season thinking Super Bowl.
