While we had news of the Jets going down to Texas to work out quarterback Andy Dalton, the team brought in a few prospects to Florham Park for workouts.

Jets' FRI Prospect Visits: Dontay Moch, OLB, Nevada, Jeff Tarpinian, ILB, Iowa and Jimmy Smith, CB, Colorado

What is interesting there is reading the positions. We profiled Moch a few months ago. He mainly played defensive end in college. His pro position is unclear. He weighed in at an all-star game at 229 pounds, probably too small to play outside linebacker effectively. It might have been a case of him dropping weight before the game to improve his burst for scouts. It also might have been a case where his college was inflating his weight on its reports. Perhaps it is reading too much into things, but it is worth noting that the Jets have him listed as an outside linebacker. I have seen some projections of him moving inside or even to safety.
