Dakota Dozier could become a starter as a rookie for the Jets
The New York Jets stole Dakota Dozier when they selected him in the fourth round, and it might turn out to be their best selection.
On Wednesday the Jets lost a key starter. Jets coach Rex Ryan announced that guard Willie Colon will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his knee after suffering an injury during a workout.
“Safe to say, it’s going to be a while,” Ryan said.
Colon was a 16-game starter in his first season in New York last season. He stayed with the Jets on a one-year, $2 million deal in March.
Dakota Dozier will compete with former Michigan defensive tackle converted O-Lineman Will Campbell.
Dozier was a dominate force for Furman last year and could come in and open gaping holes for CJ2K. I am loving this fit.
