Jets Draft Virginia OT Oday Aboushi in 5th Round


April 27, 2013

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - The New York Jets have drafted Virginia offensive tackle Oday Aboushi in the fifth round Saturday.

Aboushi was a standout with the Cavaliers as an athletic and agile lineman. He was a first-team all-ACC selection last season and was an early roster selection to the Senior Bowl. The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Aboushi will add depth to the Jets' offensive line, like at right and left tackle, as well as potentially guard.

The Staten Island native, who went to Xaverian High School in Brooklyn, was back home in December helping victims of Superstorm Sandy.
