Jets Select Wilkerson In First Round

The New York Jets selected DT Muhammad Wilkerson from Temple in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft. Wilkerson, 6'4", 315 lbs was projected to go late in the first round. He recorded 9.5 sacks in 12 games in 2010 and 7.0 sacks in 2009.

According to various scouting reports, he's a good pass-rusher who can consistently get to the quarterback. He also has good movement skills, quickness and agility for a big man. Wilkerson can play both DE and DT.

Wilkerson, however, is still rather raw. His instincts and recognition skills are still developing. He plays too tall and gets pushed around.
