Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri Tigers (6-4, 295 pounds)

The Jets needed pass rush help so they went out and grabbed the most explosive off-the-ball interior defensive lineman in the draft.  Richardson plays with a passion and intensity that is hard to find and constantly makes plays chasing down ball carriers all over the field.  Not only productive making plays against the run, his ability to get into the backfield so quickly allows him to consistently disrupt plays.  Richardson's athleticism and competitive nature will enable him to play both defensive end spots in the Jets 3-4 defense.
