Jets coach Rex Ryan said former Illinois standout Brandon Moore deserves to play in his first Pro Bowl this season.
The former college defensive lineman from West Side High in Gary, Ind., is anchoring the Jets line from his right guard position.
"He really should go," Ryan said. "It would be a shame if he doesn't make it this year. He started over 100 straight games for us so he's a great leader but he's a talented guy. He benches like 600 pounds. He's just a strong, tough guy, tougher than a boot. He's kind of a throwback guard, he can pull, trap, base block, good in pass protection.
"If I would've been here, he probably would still be a defensive lineman. I'm glad he's not though because he's been a tremendous player for us at guard."
