Here's all...our most of the good NT prospects in this year's draft. There's a relatively large amount of NT's this year as compared to the last couple of drafts so I would imagine the Jets would be looking strongly at picking up one of them.
6'4" - 275 lbs.
Mount Cody is a Junior College transfer...and as a result hasn't been on the radar until recently. Simply put...this is one huge dude. He is also dominating as a NT in a 3-4 down in Alabama...under Nick Saban. This really is the dude to get...if you want a NT. If he comes out, a first rounder. This is just a quote I read in an article about Cody that is just too funny. --- Against North Fort Myers High School during his senior season, Cody grabbed tailback Noel Devine in the backfield. "Terrence got ahold of his jersey, spun him around like a top and fell down on him," Jones said. "He came to the sideline and said, 'Coach, I made Devine throw up.' I said, 'Good for you, Terrence.'" ---
6'1" - 334 lbs.
Most of you remember him from last year. Well...he obviously didn't enter the draft...and returned for his senior season. Raji is a prototypical 34 NT, and the only real question is his character and work ethic. He's got the size and the skills...but can he use them? Has first round talent, but he could fall in any number of the middle rounds.
6'0" - 310 lbs.
A 3 year starter who, in my mind, will only ever be a decent backup. But hey, depth is half the battle. Still a good player, but not a superstar. Mid rounder.
6'2" - 325 lbs.
A hard worker who has overcome a few obstacles in his life, Dixon has been a force on Miami's line. He doesn't get a lot of press, but you can apply a lot of that to Miami's struggles these past couple of years. He is inconsistent, but I feel with more coaching and support he can improve tremendously. He too is probably a career backup, but he should still serve great depth at the NT position, which considering our starter and backup are both 29 years old, is pretty damn important. Late round pick/UFA.

I've seen Cody play both in Jr. college and at Alabama and I believe he is legit. He has an established weight problem and I am afraid when he comes off his injury he will be in the 400-450 range which is the weight he played at in juco. If this is the case I think he will opt to come back for another year of college rather than crash diet for the combine.
