With the 30th pick, the New York Jets select…
Muhammad Wilkerson, DT, Temple
6-5, 305 pounds
The Jets needed to infuse some youth and talent into their defensive front seven and Wilkerson will certainly do that. He's raw and doesn't know how to use his hands yet. However, he played as a five-technique in college, is a gifted/explosive athlete and has an ideal frame to play on the outside in a 30 front. It will take some time for him to develop, but Wilkerson's upside is tremendous.
