Jets head coach Rex Ryan is expected to get creative defensively with rookie defensive tackle Muhammad Wilkerson. Wilkerson was the 30th overall pick in April's NFL Draft by New York. "A good look at Wilkerson's tape illustrates why so many teams were interested in the 6-foot-4, 315-pound player with tackle size and end agility. Wilkerson fits Ryan's defensive schemes in several different ways – not only does he provide a lot of punch in the run defense from a three-tech or five-tech alignment, but also he can crash off the edge with the surprising speed that allowed him to amass eight sacks in 2010," Doug Farrar of Yahoo! Sports writes.
