This pass rusher at Senior Bowl should be on Jets radar Dan Leberfeld

Mobile, Alabama – It’s no secret the Jets could use a dynamic edge-rushing outside linebacker.

From what I’ve seen at the Senior Bowl practices this week, Illinois’ Carroll Phillips should be on their radar.

He’s has a great burst off-the-snap and has a terrific motor.

The Miami-native had 56 tackles, 20.0 TFLs, 9.0 sacks, 3 QB hurries, 1 forced fumble, 1 fumble recovery as a senior.

Phillips has good triangle numbers for the 3-4 OLB position at 6-3, 240 with 4.6 speed.

He’s just the kind of guy the Jets need.
