NY Jets 2011 DRAFT

New York Jets

30. Muhammad Wilkerson, defensive end, Temple
94. Kenrick Ellis, defensive tackle, Hampton
126. Bilal Powell, running back, Louisville
153. Jeremy Kerley, wide receiver, TCU
208. Greg McElroy, quarterback, Alabama
227. Scotty McKnight, wide receiver, Colorado

New York didn’t have a second round pick as a result of the Cromartie trade, so they used both of their picks on Thursday and Friday to draft players for the front 7 on a defense that struggled to generate a pass rush at times. Muhammad Wilkerson was highly ranked on many boards and was a great pick late in the first. Kenrick Ellis has legal issues that dropped him to the third, but if he is on the field he should challenge for a spot in the rotation right away.
