A successful first pick. I think with a full offseason with Dunbar still on board and with Ellis Wilk Coples and Davis getting some help on the front seven by additions in the draft FA or elsewhere and subtractions of molasses deadwood such as Scott Thomas Pace Pouha and the return of Revis and departure of Smith in the backfield, the 2013 defense could see some major improvement over 2012
can't say the jets should use the 9 pick on a lb. maybe they should trade down and get a later first plus a third or fourth and then go for oline/qb/receiver. of course victor cruz is a free agent (maybe restricted) and he might be worth pursuing.
Worth noting that Coples led the Jets in sacks with 5.5 ... Wilkerson was second with 5. That's one third of our sacks from the past two years' 1st round picks.
Too bad no-one else amounted to much, especially our OLB's.
Please draft Dion Jordon and not Mingo.No production with that speed and ability,spells BUST
Love the pick, I am very happy with how well he played in limited time and the fact that he actually led the team in sacks his rookie year. Mo's rookie year was much less promising and he has developed into one of the top 3-4 DEs in the league.
Ellis is still the biggest ? on the team but I'm thinking our front line is going to be ridiculously good in another year or two!
Considering Mingo's speed and physical gifts, his production was not good. He has a very slight frame, and has trouble getting off blocks.Would take, Jones, Jordon, and Moore over him
I would say promising would best describe his rookie season.
