Jets OL Oday Aboushi received reps with the first-team offense at both guard spots during minicamp.
With Willie Colon (biceps, knee) sidelined, Aboushi and Brian Winters were the Jets' starting guards at OTAs. The Jets expect Colon to be ready for camp, but his effectiveness coming off two major injuries is a concern. Aboushi is a candidate to start over one of Colon or Winters this season.

The New York Daily News reports second-year OL Oday Aboushi "has opened eyes" at left guard during Jets OTAs.

Aboushi and Brian Winters are running as the starting guards at OTAs while RG Willie Colon rehabs a torn biceps and recovers from a knee scope. One of the two is going to be a starter this season. If Colon doesn't return to form, both Aboushi and Winters could line up on opposite sides of C Nick Mangold. Aboushi was a college left tackle at Virginia. He's 6'5/308 with 33 7/8-inch arms.

ESPN New York reports the Jets hope either second-year OLs Oday Aboushi or William Campbell can step into a starting role at guard in 2014.

That would seem to be awfully wishful thinking on the Jets' part. Aboushi was a fifth-round pick out of Virginia, where he played left tackle, last April, while Campbell played defensive tackle at Michigan and was converted to offensive line after being drafted in the sixth round. Neither played a single snap in 2013. The Jets would be better off re-signing RG Willie Colon to another one-year deal.

Jets agreed to terms with No. 141 overall pick T/G Oday Aboushi on a four-year contract.

At 6-foot-5, 308 pounds with 33 7/8-inch arms, Aboushi has left-tackle size, but struggled mightily at the Combine. He wheezed to a 5.45 40-yard dash while posting just 17 reps on the bench. He projects as a versatile backup as a rookie. With RT Austin Howard ticketed for unrestricted free agency next offseason, Aboushi could position himself for a starting job if he shows well in 2013.

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.
