A Sneak Peek at the New York Jets Draft Board

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft is tomorrow night. Right now teams are finalizing their draft board and making phone calls trying to move up and down in the draft.

I’m going to play Mike Tannenbaum for a little and put together my draft board for the Jets for the first round, in which they hold the 30th pick.

1. Muhammad Wilkerson, DL, Temple

Wilkerson is  versatile defensive lineman that Rex Ryan and Mike Pettine would love to get their hands on. At 315 pounds Wilkerson can stop the run, but he also has the athleticism to rush the passer. Her versatility allows him to play anywhere on the defensive line.

2. Phil Taylor, DT, Baylor

With Kris Jenkins out of town, he leaves a gaping hole in the middle of the Jets defense. Taylor can plug the middle and attract double teams. His presence would allow Sione Pouha to kick out to defensive end.

3. Justin Houston, OLB, Georgia

I’m not crazy about any of the 3-4 rush linebackers, but Houston is my favorite of the bunch. He has experience playing in a 3-4 in college and has put up numbers to back it up. He offers the upside that some of the other linebackers prospect don’t.
