Thread: With the 30th Pick of the 2011 Draft the NY Jets select Muhammad Wilkerson of Temple

  1. #41
    Wilkerson's intangible pluses:

    - Local kid from NJ.
    - Went to college on the East Coast.
    - Big frame with room to grow and get stronger.
    - That same college happens to be where one of the best players in franchise history came from.
    - One of the younger players in the draft at 21.

    I like this pick alot. I wonder if it's enough of a boon to the D. I'd really like to walk away with a Ayers, Reed, Moore, Williams, etc. tommorrow. 94 seems very far away.

    NFL.com's rankings have Wilkerson rated higher than Heyward and Cameron Jordan.

    Well maybe they should watch him play against some tier 1 tackles. He's not flawless...


    I was a little about Wilks over Heyward, but i trust our scouting crew. I'm totally relieved we got that 3-4 End that i think we needed in bad way..

    Some mixed feelings about letting Jordan get so close. Don't really understand letting him go, but time to look forward, not backward. Carter rnd 3.

    Great pick!!

    Instant starter on the D-line and brings intensity and a shot of youth to the defensive front. 6'4 315 3-4 DE dont grow on tree's and the best part is that he is going to get even stronger as he gets acclimated in an NFL training program. This kid has so much potential and Rex is going to help him realize it.

    I'm hoping tomorrow the Jets trade up and select a pass rusher since Bowers, Ayers, and even Reed are still available.

    God if you can hear me please allow the Jets to select Akeem Ayers tomorrow, Thank you.

    Not like we passed on the guy. Jordan would've taken AT LEAST a 3rd and probably more. Wilkerson didn't cost a thing. Time will tell. Wilkerson's going to take a couple of seasons to show what he's got.

    and i'm saying that largely cause i was THAT in love with Jordan. He's a versatile end who can do more than just get to the QB. He's got that freakish talent to drop back like ngata does sometimes and i wanted him bad...

    but time will tell. I'm more than happy we got Wilkerson over some of the other fan favorites here. It just hurt a little to see a few guys get so close and then be snatched away in the last few picks.

    Fair enough, we all get our man crushes. However, I think Wilkerson will bring more pressure on QB's than Jordan, something sorely lacking from our current DL.

    A tall, long-armed defensive line prospect who possesses a great-looking frame and the physical makeup to get even bigger. Is a raw talent at this stage who played this past year as a defensive end in the Temple 34 front, but he still has a lot of upside to his game. Showcases inconsistent pad level when asked to sit into his stance, has the ability to keep his base low, but too often comes up with his butt too high off the ball causing him to get upright into contact. However, at times does showcase a good pad level off the ball, can extend his arms and gain leverage on contact. But typically when engaged allows himself to get upright, which takes away from his initial power when asked to anchor. Will allow defenders to get under his frame and can be driven off the line at times. But does a good job collecting himself, extending his arms and using his length to free himself and make a play on the football.

    Displays average instincts and read and react ability inside and has the athletic skill set to make plays off his frame when need be. At his best using his violent club on the outside to slip a blocker off the line and closes quickly in pursuit. However, is much more natural keeping himself clean than disengaging with his hands through contact. Isn't a real gifted pass rusher at this stage. Exhibits a good first step, is routinely one of the first linemen off the ball and can threaten gaps inside. However, gets too upright into contact off the edge, doesn't showcase much violence/know-how to use his hands to shed and his upright pad level really takes away from his balance and ability to slip blockers even in space and close.

    Impression: The skill set is there; he's long, has a good first step, can bend and find the football. However, he's just inconsistent with his pad level and doesn't know how to use his hands to disengage. Has a lot of upside still to his game, but is going to need time to mature until he's ready to play at the next level. Will gets looks both as a 3-4 DE and a 4-3 three-technique.

    Pass rush: Overwhelms college tackles with size and strength, then chases down quarterbacks with his length and nimble feet. Lacks a quick first step, but flashes a swim move and closing speed to the passer. Feels cut blocks, keeps his hands involved and watches for the quick throw in his direction. Must improve his hand usage to consistently get off blocks inside. Eats up multiple blockers on inside twists to free up other defensive linemen. Effective bull-rushing college tackles when coming from outside the tackle, but rarely pushes back interior linemen. Not sudden or flexible enough to get the corner.

    Run defense: Agile five-technique who lines up on either side of the formation. Patient and keeps his eyes in the backfield to contain; very solid in his outside assignment. Comes off outside path or double teams inside to spin/shed, catching back running through the hole. Uses shoulder to hold off blockers while slanting into the backfield. Not exceptional change-of-direction agility but his length allows him to get a hand on ballcarriers trying to get through the hole. Not a dominating interior player despite his size. NFL blockers will win the leverage battle until he gets stronger and more physical inside.

    Explosion: Has the potential to be very explosive off the snap, but comes off a bit slow and must use his strength to pop into the chest of blockers. Can utilize his strength and length to hit hard and squeeze the football from a ballcarrier.

    Strength: Flashes strong hands, playing with leverage, and the ability to push off linemen to make tackles. Gets stood up at the line too often instead of bull-rushing his man backward or pushing his way through the double-team.

    Tackling: Tall, thick frame and long arms make him difficult to avoid in tight quarters and to shed once latched on. Gets a lot of tackles with hustle, keeps his feet moving when chasing from behind. Lacks superior straight-line speed but gives excellent effort to the sideline. Must drop his hips to bring down more elusive pro ballcarriers.

    Intangibles: Plays a lot of snaps given his size but gives good effort throughout the game. Attended Hargrave Military Academy. Temple's defensive MVP in 2010. No known character issues.

    i've probably said this before but will say it again: this is a rare skillset to have... we all follow the draft every year i can't remember alot of prospects that project to both 3 tech and 5 tech. they are very different positions. 3 techs must be disruptive gap shooters. 5 techs must be strong long gap cloggers. to be able to do both is super rare. no other prospect in this draft projects like Wilkerson.

    Love this pick!!

    Bold prediction - Mo will have more sacks in his rookie year that VG has in his career!

    This quote from an article in Tuesday's Post got me thinking this is exactly what Rex would be looking for - The anti-Ghoulston!

    Two of the coaches Wilkerson considers himself closest to -- former Temple defensive coordinator Mark D'Onofrio and defensive line coach Jethro Franklin, both of whom went to the University of Miami with head coach Al Golden -- referred to the same characteristics they believe will make Wilkerson a great NFL player.

    "His football intelligence is off the charts," Franklin said. "You can tell this guy something one time on the football field and he gets it."

    D'Onofrio said, "He understands the game at a high level. Whoever ends up drafting him will figure that out real quick, and because of that he'll be able to step in and have immediate impact."
