The Jets have signed their fourth-round pick OL Dakota Dozier, the team announced.
Dozier was the third fourth-round pick by the Jets.
Dozier is a 6-foot-4, 313 pound first-team AP FCS All-American who started in all 14 games during the 2013 season. He was also unanimously named to the All-Southern Conference first team in both the 2013 and 2012 seasons. Dozier spent most of his college career playing at left tackle, but spent time practicing at guard and played at the position late in the 2013 season.
Scouts have pointed out that Dozier has ideal size and a strong base, but they also point out that he does not have clean footwork. CBSSports.com’s draft profile projected that Dozier would be selected in either the third or fourth round.
