2010 NFL Draft Grades: New York Jets
New York has already accomplished a lot in the offseason by landing Santonio Holmes, signing Jason Taylor, and trading for Antonio Cromartie. Because of this, it didn’t necessarily need a lot from the draft, nor did it have all the picks they would have liked.
However, the end result was a mediocre draft.
Still, the Jets added even more depth to their secondary with a potentially elite corner in Boise State’s Kyle Wilson, while then adding another potential-ridden player in offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse.
After trading away injured running back Leon Washington, the Jets suddenly had room to add Joe McKnight, who was still available in the fourth round, and was simply too good to pass up.
The Jets only had four picks, and still came away with three guys who could end up having some sort of an impact right away in 2010. However, a mere four picks can only have them being graded so high.
1 (29) Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise State *****
2 (61) Vladimir Ducasse, OL, UMass ****
4 (112) Joe McKnight, RB, USC ****
5 (130) John Connor, FB, Kentucky **
