Jets source tells Sal Paolantonio that Alabama TE O.J. Howard looks like "an immediate Pro Bowl level player." Howard, Jets coaches believe, can make an impact in the offense of new offensive coordinator John Morton, who came from the Saints, who featured former TE Jimmy Graham. Howard could be the pick at 6, Paolantonio reports.
