Jets selected Virginia OT Oday Aboushi with the No. 141 overall pick.
Aboushi (6-foot-5 3/8, 308) made 32 starts for the Cavs, including his final 32 at left tackle. While blessed with left-tackle height and arms (33 7/8"), Aboushi is a so-so athlete, struggled with edge speed in the ACC, and isn't a power blocker. He ran 5.45 at the Combine and managed just 17 reps on the bench. Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris has suggested Aboushi may need to move to right tackle in the pros, while others believe he'll play guard. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 02:27:00 PM

Virginia T Oday Aboushi is visiting the St. Louis Rams on April 15.

Aboushi is a talented prospect that has experience at left tackle but there are questions whether he'll stay at the position when he comes to the pros. He's struggled with speed rushers in the past, which could lead him to playing offensive guard. Overall, he needs to improve at the point of contact and getting off the snap in timely fashion.

Virginia T Oday Aboushi's forty topped out at 5.44 seconds, unofficially.

Aboushi played left tackle at Virginia and had his struggles against speed edge rushers, namely against Florida State in 2011. However, once in good position with his hands inside, Aboushi can control the opposition very well.

The NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah believes Virginia T Oday Aboushi looked like a mid-rounder during Senior Bowl week.

"Most clubs believe he will be better suited to slide inside and play offensive guard at the next level," Jeremiah wrote. Aboushi consistently lost on first contact in Mobile and was one of the worst edge blockers during practice. Still, his tape showed a player likely to be drafted on the second day.

Virginia's Oday Aboushi "has all the tools to be a good starting left tackle in the NFL," according to former NFL scout Russ Lande.

Lande loves Aboushi's size, especially when it combines "with his smooth athleticism, good technique and competitiveness." There were times when the cavalier looked excellent on the blind side and others where he was abused by edge rushers with speed. We think his natural fit is on the right side, but Aboushi could prove us wrong in Mobile.

Virginia senior T Oday Aboushi has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Aboushi is a wide bodied left tackle for the Cavaliers that tends to struggle against pure speed rushers. However, if he latches on with balanced footwork and proper posture, Aboushi can dominate with a strong grip and powerful push. We project him to the right side in the NFL.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler tweeted that Virginia senior T Oday Aboushi has "played well so far" in 2012.

Brugler admits that Aboushi is not "exceptional in any one area" but he is steady, and in a weak senior tackle class "that's not bad." Aboushi is currently playing left tackle, but we think he projects best on the right side because of his difficulties against speed edge rushers in 2011. However, once the massive blocker gets his hands latched on in good position, it is over.

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper lists Virginia's Oday Aboushi as the second best senior tackle prospect in the country.

Aboushi trails only Wisconsin's Ricky Wagner on Kiper's list. At 6'6/310 pound, the Cavalier boasts an ideal frame and can really move defensive tackles when crashing down in the running game. However, we are skeptical if he has the quick twitch mirroring skills to stay on the left side in the NFL. Aboushi certainly flashes strength on first contact, but too often it is generated from a stiff posture.
