Holmes says Jets need O-linemen

Santonio Holmes believes the Jets need a few good men -- on the offensive line.

Holmes, who created a firestorm last season by publicly criticizing the offensive line, said in a Disney interview at the ESPN Wide World of Sports complex that the Jets needs to bolster the line and the receiving corps in the draft.

"We're looking for a few offensive linemen, some guys that are ready to come in and play right away," said Holmes, who works out at the complex. "We need a few more receivers to give Mark (Sanchez) more weapons to throw the ball to. And, hopefully, our defense comes around.

"Guys are ready to go, man. We're looking forward to a big season this year and, hopefully, make it to the playoffs, finishing off with the right things, holding that trophy."

It wouldn't be a shock if the Jets draft a right tackle, widely regarded as the weakest position on the line. They also could use some depth at guard, but to say they need a few linemen to play right away is a stretch.
