Top DTs visiting Jets

Posted by Chris Brown on April 11, 2011 – 10:22 am

A couple of the top defensive tackle prospects in this year’s draft are making pre-draft visits to the Jets today (Monday).

According to the Jets official team site, Baylor DT Phil Taylor and Temple DT/DE Muhammad Wilkerson are visiting with the club in Florham Park, N.J..

Wilkerson and Taylor figure to be late first-round picks and the Jets draft pick 30th overall. With NT Kris Jenkins not expected back and DE Shaun Ellis soon to be 33-years old, New York needs an influx of youth up front, so seeing them pull the trigger on either one of these players would come as no surprise on draft day.

Watching Taylor work at the Senior Bowl all week, he was downright dominant. Wilkerson offers the versatility of playing a 3-4 end or a 3-4 nose if needed.

Other Jets visitors include Tempe S Jaiqwan Jarrett, Rutgers CB Joe Lefeged, Arkansas OL Ray Dominguez, Slippery Rock C Brandon Fusco, Central Florida OT Jah Reid.
