Gholston to the Jets at No. 6

With the No. 6 overall pick in the NFL Draft

The New York Jets select…

Vernon Gholston, Defensive End, Ohio State University. 

Gholston is 6’3” 266 lbs. and ran a 4.67 40-yard dash.

Gholston has to make the adjustment from defensive end to outside linebacker in the 3-4 defense now. But the consensus seems to be that he will be able to make the transition. Immediately he’s going to have trouble in coverage but that’s a natural growing pain in making that transition. This is an important pick for the Jets because of Tom Brady and the Patriots. The Giants have made pass-rushers popular again and maybe too much so but nevertheless this will be really big in getting to the quarterback. The Jets secondary should be the most happy of the bunch. Now they won’t have to stay in coverage for years on end. Gholston should be the pass rusher they’re looking for.

Now their rival Patriots are on the clock who could go any number of directions…
