|Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Below we take a look at the 2010 draft selections of the New York Jets, highlighting the ramifications of their two-day haul and assigning grades for their efforts.|
1 - Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State (5-10, 186);
2 - Vladimir Ducasse, OL, Massachusetts (6-4, 332);
4 - Joe McKnight, RB, USC (5-11, 198);
5 - John Conner, FB, Kentucky (5-11, 246)
Analysis: The Jets got an absolute steal in Wilson, a technically sound player and local product (from nearby Piscataway, NJ) who is going to look great opposite Darrelle Revis and give the team some insurance in case Antonio Cromartie fails. With their second-round selection, the Jets targeted Ducasse, who needs some work (particularly with his feet), but is going to need to develop quickly after the team released guard Alan Faneca's upon Ducasse's selection. McKnight was an interesting pick in Round 4, and made Leon Washington, who was soon after dealt to the Seahawks, expendable. Conner was rated by many as the second-best fullback in this Draft behind Toby Gerhart, and his presence puts Tony Richardson (who was re-signed in March) on notice.
Bottom Line: Jets did OK if you count Braylon Edwards and Santonio Holmes as part of this draft class, but gambled in parting ways with Faneca and Washington and totally whiffed on adding depth to the defensive line.
