Jets Select Kyle Wilson at 29

New, comments

So much for trading up. The Jets landed a corner with top notch cover skills sitting at 29 and could have had Jerry Hughes or Sergio Kindle. They ultimately went with help in the defensive backfield over the pass rushers. The Jason Taylor signing allowed them to do it.

We will have plenty more on Wilson, but I really like the pick. He is quick and physical. He also has top notch ball skills. I think he could start right now in a man based scheme like the Jets have. He will instantly become one of the top nickels in the game.

The Jets can now man up with any three receiver set in the league with Revis, Cromartie, and Wilson. Rex can get even more aggressive with his calls. If everybody is healthy, we will never see the number two and three receivers go crazy the way they did in the AFC Championship Game.
