What do Oakland Raiders Coach Dennis Allen and New York Jets Coach Rex Ryan have in common? They both had to see Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel during pro day.
While most of the 32 teams in the NFL sent their scouts and personnel directors to College Station, Texas, on Friday, Allen and Ryan made the trek themselves to watch the 6-foot-6, 310-pounder that many think is the top player available in the draft on April 25.
“I think he was impressive on the tape and just watching him out here and getting a chance to visit with him, I think not only is he a good football player, he's an impressive young man,” Allen said after the pro day. “I think that's the thing that when you look at him, that's the thing that says this guy is going to make it in the National Football League.”
