Jets sign offensive lineman Dakota Dozier

The Jets have signed yet another draft pick.

The club said Wednesday it had reached a deal with offensive lineman Dakota Dozier, a fourth-round selection from Furman.

The Jets are listing Dozier (6-4, 313) at guard, though he has collegiate experience at tackle, too.

“He has some position flexibility, which is attractive about Dakota,” Jets G.M. John Idzik said after the draft, according to the club.

Dozier is the second Jets draft pick to sign. Earlier Wednesday, the club announced an agreement with outside linebacker Trevor Reilly, a seventh-round pick from Utah.

    They see him as a road grater for the running game. “Bull” Dozier.

    With the rookie wage scale, teams should have all their picks signed with a few days of the draft.

    He was clearly destined to be a football player or a lumberjack.

    “With the rookie wage scale, teams should have all their picks signed with a few days of the draft.”

    No, no, no. Most of these kids are well served to have plenty of consoling, advise and conversation with agents, veterans, coaching, front office staff and at the very least have attended the rookie symposium before being handed a check larger that their wildest dreams especially those with big guarantees. Get them to the facility and talk to them about the real world first.

    Glad to see a team start signing their draft picks early instead of waiting for the 11th hour in July. That never made sense to me considering the time between the draft and training camp and the rookie wage scale. Plus players are protected in case of injury during mini camps and OTA’s.
