Brian Winters terrific prospect Dan Leberfeld

Florham Park – Jets left guard Brian Winters will get his first career start on Monday against the Atlanta Falcons. He will replace Vladimir Ducasse in the starting lineup.

“It’s a good feeling,” Winters told Jets Confidential on Wednesday. “I feel I have been working hard. It’s a blessing.”

Winters was the Jets’ 2013 third round pick out of Kent State.

He played offensive tackle in college, but was drafted to play guard.

“He has a physical playing temperament,” said one talent evaluator. “He possesses the toughness, desire and explosion to make an immediate impact. He’s a low-risk, high-reward pick.”
