    Ranked 24 overall player so we got value without trading. Here's the ESPN pick analysis:

    30(30) NY Jets Muhammad Wilkerson DE Temple
    What he brings: Wilkerson (6-4, 315) is a powerful player at the point of attack. He can stack and hold the edge as well as any 5-technique in this class, and in addition he shows above-average range to make plays outside the tackle box. Wilkerson also brings a pass-rush presence with quickness and active hands. He needs to play with a more consistent effort and could dominate more regularly, though.
    How he fits: The biggest need for the Jets was their edge pass rush at DE or OLB and they filled one of them with this pick. Veteran Shaun Ellis has been a solid player but he's 33 years old and may not be back. Mike DeVito plays hard but doesn?t give you much of a pass rush and former first-round pick Vernon Gholston has been a huge bust. Wilkerson is an unusual 3-4 DE because he is more than just a run stopper with his 9.5 sacks a year ago. He should start immediately in this front seven and fill a huge gap at DE, where they have struggled recently.

    Haven't followed this years draft as extensively as years past, but I like the pick from what I gather. The Level of competition doesn't concern me at all, and looks athletic with a good motor. As opposed to some blob run stuffer like Cody or Phil Taylor.
