2011 NFL Draft Picks (Before Draft Begins)

Jets Draft Needs
WR, OLB, OG, DE, SS, FS
30. New York Jets Select: DE Muhammad Wilkerson
Nice pick for the Jets as Muhammad Wilkerson fell in this draft. The Jets continue to add on the defense and this move was a must as the front line is getting old. Hopefully the Jets will continue to add on the defensive line in the draft and in free agency.
Draft Grade: B+
94. Defensive Tackle Kenrick Ellis
Nice big nose tackle for the front line in New York. They needed help up front and they’ve gotten it with their first two picks.
126. Running Back Bilal Powell
153. Wide Receiver Jeremy Kerley
208. Quarterback Greg McElroy
227. Wide Receiver Scotty McKnight
