Jets grab Muhammad Wilkerson with No. 30 pick

One of the best moments of every draft is hearing the reaction from the Jets fans at the draft.   They approved of New York’s selection of Muhammad Wilkerson, although it was a little lukewarm.

The defensive tackle from Temple should be a defensive end in Rex Ryan’s defense.

Gang Green came into this draft having to address their lack of difference makers and age in the front seven.  Even if Shaun Ellis returns to the team, Wilkerson should be a valuable piece to add to the mix. Wilkerson could possibly play inside as well when the Jets move to a four man front.

    This was a steal for the Jets. This guy was pegged as a top 15 talent and is a beast. Perfect 3-4 DE. Excellent value at 30.

    Just kidding.

    And man, is his footwork nice. Rex can’t wait to check out those size 14 puppies in action.

    I’m happy with the pick because it addressed an area of need, but as always we’ll have to wait and see how it all plays out.

    Last year we (and the coaches) penciled Kyle Wilson in as “starting” nickel back, and then the starter while Revis was holding out..he barely contributed last year at all..

    it seems like when you read these boards everyone that took a player from 20-32 this year got top 15 talent.

    dreadpiratesteve nailed it. I couldn’t be happier that the Jets got this guy. He’s gonna wreak havoc.

    Played at a small school against weaker talent. I’ll wait and see.
