    Can anybody shed some light on how Will Campbell has been looking and how you see his future with the Jets?

    The Saints were very high on Campbell and drafted a smilar player at pick 183. I'm not sure Campbell makes it past 183 if the Jets don't take him at 178. The Lions were also big on him (he went to HS in Detroit, too) and had a pick at 199. I hear what you are saying, but if the Jets wanted Campbell, they probably had to take him at that spot.

    Well he is not a convicted felon, he was charged with a joke of a felony charge that was dropped. So you agree with me, I presume?

    Out of curiosity, what is the state of your offensive line? Do you think Campbell has a decent shot at landing on the 53 man roster? You guys are more likely to use him at guard than tackle, I assume?

    I don't know if that is sarcasm or not, but regardless, Campbell is not a felon.

    Will Campbell
    I know most of you probably don't know much about Campbell, and I wouldn't expect you to. I have watched every Michigan game for the past umpteen years and have some ties to the Michigan Footall program. That being said, this is my breakdown of your 6th round pick.
    Campbell has 1st round size and strength. He has 1st round talent. He has had 6th round production. He dominated high school by simply being stronger than everybody and found out, the hard way, that doesn't fly in college. He needed to be worked with and taught fundementals (stance, pad level, etc.). The problem is, as most of you know, Rich Rodriguez completely neglected the defense. Take a look at the turn around Campbell has had under and NFL D Coordinator (Mattison). He has completely transformed his body and attitude and the results followed suit.
    Don't be fooled by the felony charge he had last year. You won't find a better personality. He was one of the most liked guys on the team last year. He tried to pull a Duke's of Hazard esque hood slide as a joke, but 340 pounds doesn't tread car hoods too well. There was no chance that felony charge was going to hold, and it didn't.
    Campbell's biggest issue in college was technique. He was not good at "playing low". A switch to offensive line might be huge, because 50% of the time you aren't trying to be low. If he plays guard for you guys, then that number increases (leverage isn't needed when you pull). He moves pretty well for a guy his size, so I think he will be fine with a transtion to guard.
    Lastly, he is very young. He was an early enrollee at Michigan and also graduated a semester early. He graduated with a 4 year degree from them Universtiy of Michigan in 3 1/2 years, at the age of 21.
