2011 NFL Draft Results: New York Jets Select NT Kenrick Ellis

With the 94th pick in the 2011 NFL draft, the New York Jets selected NT Kenrick Ellis out of Hampton. The Jets get their nose tackle of the future and I'm a huge fan of this pick. 3-4 nose tackles are hard to come by and there were only a handful in this draft with Ellis being one of them. 

For Ellis, this is an excellent landing spot. He immediately enters one of the best defenses in the NFL. He may not make a big year-one impact but you can bet if anyone gets the best out of him, it'll be Rex Ryan. Solid pick.
