    Certainly better than Nate Solder or Christian Ponder.

    B+ took the right guy given the board, but I was hoping for a trade down. Only thing that's keeping it from being an A in my eyes.

    Similar feelings but I'm glad they pulled the trigger on a guy who could/should have been gone before 20 or 25. Defensive Line is a position of need and the Jets got excellent value. Would have liked to see us accumulate some more picks but I think the Jets let the Board fall to them and got a very good player.

    I voted B.

    Wilkerson with the 30 pick is an easy A

    I liked this pick at first, but now I love it. A potential Haloti Ngata-type player that could play anywhere along the line, who Kiper called the best pick of the first round, at number 30? :yes:

    If the Jets can somehow trade up for a LB (Ayers, Reed, **** it even Houston), this draft is an A no matter what happens.

    A+

    Seriously.

    Who the hell ever would've thought that we would have the opportunity to pick between Wilkerson and Heyward at #30? I was thinking we were going to have to settle on someone like Brooks Reed or Marvin Austin.

    Wilkerson has all of the potential in the world. He's still a bit raw, but the size is there, the talent is there, and the work ethic is there. Not to mention that he was already used as a 3-4 DE at Temple. We're talking about a guy who is 6'4 315 with 4.9 speed and can get after the QB just as effectively as he can stop the run. I said months ago that I consider Wilkerson to be a better prospect than his former teammate Terrence Knighton who was an absolute stud for the Jags last year.


    Hell, Mel Kiper even went on record saying that we made the best pick of Round 1. How could you not give it an A grade?

    It fills a major need and it's a great value pick, so it's hard not to rate this an "A" right now. So I did. I love the pick. Still, grading picks before anyone even takes the field is kind of meaningless. The majority of us probably liked the Gholston pick, too.

    Im seriously hoping Tanny pulls of a trade and lands Ayers as he's who I wanted at 30 but since Wilkerson fell who can blame them for taking him.

    Ayers in round 2, MAKE IT HAPPEN TANNY!!! :yes:

    tough to rate it anything but an A.

    great fit, great need, great value at #30.

    [QUOTE=Green Jets & Ham;4013628]Trust me dirt, his knee is a disaster.

    How do I know that?

    Cause if he was healthy he was a slam-dunk TOP 10 Pick, and even if there was a pretty good chance he might be okay, he would never have escaped the TOP 15-20

    There were rumors before the draft that some teams believed he was going to need micro-surgery on that knee, you hear so many things prior to the draft that you don't know what to believe, but the fact that this player, a player some people thought could be the #1 Overall Pick at one point, slid out of the 1st RD, that tells you his knee is bad news.

    Its gonna be interesting tomorrow to see how much further he slides?[/QUOTE]

    No doubt. It certainly says something when practically EVERY TEAM IN THE NFL passes on him. I didn't want to see the Jets be the team that took the chance. Maybe if there wasn't anyone else valuable when we hit the clock at 30, but with at least 5 or 6 highly draftable guys there for the taking there was no need to take a chance on Bowers. Wilkerson could have been taken before 20 and no analyst would have questioned it.

    We done good. :yes:

    Get some sleep fellas. Big day tomorrow....I think the Jets make a pick. ;)
