I'm intrigued by Houston's pass rush ability, but when he was asked to play in space at Georgia, it wasn't pretty. Reed isn't a first round talent. If he didn't look like Clay Matthews, he'd be a mid-second round prospect. Give me Ayers.
Ayers brings the most utility to the Jets and from many accounts he's a fine passrusher
