Muhammad Wilkerson Is Jets Pick in Latest SB Nation Mock

New, comments

It is that time of the week again. I am here to promote another mock from our network's main page. This week Brian Galliford has a Temple Owl heading to New York.

30. New York Jets: Muhammad Wilkerson, DT, Temple. Probably a bit overhyped, but Wilkerson is an intriguing, massive athlete that Rex Ryan can scheme around.

Wilkerson seems like a popular guy around here, but I am not sure about this. If the Jets are going to go defensive line, it is interesting to see Wilkerson over Cameron Heyward and Phil Taylor, both of whom are still on the board. Maybe it has something to do with Taylor's foot problems, which GGN member joeklecko noted in a FanPost. Nose tackles are more difficult commodities to find in the 3-4 than ends. If value is relatively equal, which seems to be the case here, I think you have to consider taking Taylor.
