Rex Ryan got more help with his vaunted 3-4 defense taking Temple defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson 30th overall.
Wilkerson is a natural fit for the Jets after coming from a 3-4 at Temple. The lengthy Wilkerson is a high upside athlete who will be a top player for years.
Wilkerson started his final two years of college at defensive tackle for Temple. In that time, he was one of the Mid-American Conference's top players. As a junior, he finished with 70 tackles with 13 tackles for loss and 9.5 sacks. In 2009, he had 61 tackles, 10.5 tackles for a loss and seven sacks. It should be noted, though, that the MAC is one of the weakest conferences in the nation.
