The Jets run defense sorely missed Damon “Snacks” Harrison last season after he signed a deal with the New York Jets. The Jets could use another run stuffer on the interior defensive line and could find that from a Brooklyn native.
At 6’6″ at 310 pounds Coward has the versatility to line up in multiple spots from inside at most tackle to even outside as a 3-4 end. With the Jets using the 3-4 base Coward might be a project to be the eventual nose tackle, but could be use as a versatile backup allowing Wilkerson and Leonard blows in certain packages.
While the lack of competition at Conference USA could make for a steep learning curve, the raw talent and ability to be a versatile defensive lineman should warrant a section.
Seaton has been one of the few offensive linemen the Jets have coveted. He is the only lineman to have the team visit both his pro day and invite him for a private workout during this year’s draft process.
At 6’7 and 310 pounds, the Bronx native has shown that he can use his size in both the run game and holding up against the bull rush. His lateral quickness can be an issue though which is why he projects as a right tackle in the NFL. His durability in college of starting three straight years is also an attractive quality given the amount of injuries New York’s offensive line sustained last year.
With the possibility of developing into a solid left or right tackle Seaton is a prospect that not only provides depth on the line, but could compete for a starting job within a year or two.
