The Jets are in serious need of a dynamic playmaker opposite David Harris at inside linebacker.
Vontaze Burfict was looked at as a potential first-round pick for the Jets earlier this year, but after a subpar combine, he seriously hurt his draft stock.
Burfict's anger problems have been questioned since his debut at Arizona State, but his athleticism has always been considered elite.
However, a 4.93 40-yard dash has teams running away from the Pac-12 star.
Burfict may slide down a few rounds in this April's draft as a result of the poor showing at the combine.
The Jets will be looking in the other direction until at least the middle rounds.
