Ryan Takes in Illinois Pro Day

No word on who exactly caught his eye while there, but Rex Ryan took in Illinois pro day, and most seem to think that it was DT Corey Liuget that was the apple of the coaches eye at the workout.

What does a head coach do during a lockout? If you’re Rex Ryan, you get out of the office to do some scouting.

The Jets’ coach was in Champaign, Illinois, Wednesday to attend the Illinois Pro Day. Why Illinois? The school has three potential first-round picks — DT Corey Liuget, RB Mikel Lishoure and LB Martez Wilson.

Presumably, Ryan was there to check out the defensive players; it will be an upset if the Jets don’t go defense with their first-round pick (30th overall). Ryan apparently made quite an impression on Liuget.

“I love coach Rex,” Liuget told the Chicago Tribune. “He asked me if my last name was Ryan. He definitely is a comedian. He is a funny guy.”
