Brad Seaton,the Villanova offensive lineman who is quickly gaining momentum on draft boards, is set for another visit with an NFL team.
Fresh off workouts with the Buffalo Bills and the Houston Texans as well as the New England Patriots in recent days, a source tells Sporting News that Seaton was scheduled tovisit the New York Jets on Thursday.
MOCK DRAFT: Jets go defense early
Given that the Jets have hemorrhaged offensive linemen recently with last year’s retirement of left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson and the offseason cuts of center Nick Mangold and right tackle Breno Giacomini, the need to shore up the trenches is likely to be a focus for them this draft.
A three-year starter at tackle for Villanova, Seaton impressed at his Pro Day last month, including running a 5.22in the 40. He moves comfortably in the open field and slideswell.
Seaton was an All-Conference selection last year, his senior season with the Wildcats.
