New York Jets Select Muhammad Wilkerson With 30th Overall Pick

With the 30th overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, the New York Jets selected Temple DE/DT Muhammad Wilkerson.

Every year, a smaller school player rises to the first round. Wilkerson is that guy this year. With Kris Jenkins almost always injured and Shaun Ellis getting older, the Jets needed to invest in their defensive line - especially in Rex Ryan's defensive scheme. Wilkerson has all of the physical tools to be a dominant lineman. Long arms, quick speed for a 315 pound man, strength to hold the point of attack, and overall a great physical specimen. Can he play with elite competition? Rex Ryan thinks so. I am unsure of what to make of Wilkerson, but a lot of people are high on him and the Jets are happy with him.
