We know the Jets are showing interest in the big run stuffer, but has he done enough to hear his name called? The Jets have been showing a fair amount of interest in Tupou. I managed to speak to someone who was at the Colorado Pro Day who specified that the Jets were spending a lot of time with the big nose tackle. Something that Tony Pauline confirmed later that day.

Josh Tupou: Unsung hero of the Buffs defensive brilliance

BOULDER — Nobody thanks the defensive nose tackle, football’s most thankless job. He wears No. 58 for Colorado. Josh Tupou is the unsung hero of this surprising Buffaloes team.

It's been more than a year since Josh Tupou last suited up for the Colorado football team, but the defensive tackle has been plenty busy during his time away from school and the game.

  Colorado’s key defensive tackle Josh Tupou “will not be a member of the team this fall.” As my colleague Ryan Koenigsberg pointed out, Tupou was one of the most important players on the defensive side of the ball. In 2014 Tupou lead the team’s D-Linemen in both snaps taken and total tackles, but he will not be an option for new defensive coordinator Jim Leavitt in 2015...
