Nervous Wait As Wilson Dropped

The Newest Jet, Kyle Wilson will add another dimension to this teams defense as well as special teams.

Last night, several people were asking how far Wilson would have to drop before Mike made a trade up to select him, and the further he went, the more anxious we got, well we were certainly not the only ones, as the New York Post reports:

"Looking at the board I kept saying, 'Just hang in there,' " Ryan said.

Asked what the wait was like, Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, a nervous guy on a calm day, said jokingly, "A couple [of] thousand calories."

Wilson was just a few miles away watching in his NJ home when he got word over the phone, an experience he called 'surreal'. A surreal experience that's outcome, Wilson seems to like.

"Honestly, I feel right at home," Wilson said. "Personally, [the Jets] were one of the best visits I had. One of the best connections I had was with [the Jets] staff. I couldn't have dreamt it any better."

Asked what he will bring to the Jets, Wilson said, "I just make plays. Whatever they need me to do I can do it with my versatility."

We all remember Peyton Manning having his way against our secondary in the AFC Championship game, and the Post reported that the pick had a lot to do with that, no longer can teams just throw away from Revis, if WIlson is as good at the next level as he is projected to me, there will be nowhere to hide.

"Clearly, that was an issue, certainly," Ryan said.

"This gives us a better chance to compete against the passing attacks we have to face in AFC," Tannenbaum said.
