FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — The New York Jets have selected Michigan defensive tackle William Campbell in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Campbell was durable during his time at Michigan. He played in 51 straight games for the Wolverines, even moving to the offensive line in 2010. The Jets could see him more as a prospect on the offensive line, where Campbell worked out some and a move New York once made successfully with Brandon Moore, who was a college defensive lineman.

Campbell was an All-Big Ten honorable mention last season after having 44 tackles and a sack.
