Defensive linemen are more rotational guys than starters or backups, per se. If the Jets' defense is on the field for roughly 65 snaps per game this season, I'd say he's going to get something like half of them, with an adjustment to his playing time made as the season goes along, based on his effectiveness. It would appear he has more raw talent than any of their current D-linemen (although an aging Shaun Ellis has always been kind of underrated), so the upside could put him on the field for as much as two-thirds of the plays in 2011.
Based off his size and talent id say yes but he is making a big jump in level of compitition. I'd think he would be in alot of sub packages and pass rushing situations in the beggining of the season and as time goes on and he gets more comfortable he see's more playing time.
[QUOTE=Untouchable;4013644]I'm not sure if he'll start from day one, but he'll definitely see a lot of playing time.
It really all depends on what happens with[B] Ellis and Pryce[/B].[/QUOTE]
Hoping the Jets bring these guys back on the cheap. Great mentors for Wilkerson and have a little left in the tank. Ellis is always underrated and should simply retire a Jet and Pryce helped get some pass rush from the middle even though he is nowhere what he used to be.
