Ellis was a great Jet, consistently playing his position above average and he had some games where he really changed the outcome. But Wilkerson "could" become a lineman the other team has to game plan for because I think he is simply too strong to count on an OL consistently blocking him 1 on 1.
+1 Remember when Hermie told Ellis to bulk up to play DT?? That was a failure but Mo can play anywhere on the D front..
