2011 NFL Draft: New York Jets analysis and prediction

2011 NFL Draft: New York Jets analysis and prediction

WHERE THEY NEED HELP: Defensive line

ANALYSIS: More so than any other position, the Jets need help on their defensive line. They do not have a second round pick, so they have to make this pick count. They need a pass rushing linebacker and/or a pass rushing end, for Rex Ryan’s blitz schemes and packages. They also need a nose tackle to clog the middle so they don’t have to roll the dice on Kris Jenkins for a third year only to see him go out with an injury. If Jenkins is healthy and returns on an incentive laiden contract, then good as he used to be one of the top nose tackles in the game. But the Jets cannot count on that right now. The Jets can probably live with Jonathan Thomas and Calvin pace at linebacker despite both being over 30. Inside or outside, the first pick is going to be a defensive lineman.
