David Harris: The Jets talented inside linebacker emerged as one of the league's top defensive players this season, as he performed at an incredibly high level on a weekly basis. The Michigan product contributed in all phases of the game, and he was the only player in the NFL to record five sacks and four interceptions.
Darrelle Revis: The perennial Pro Bowler was as dominant as ever after a subpar 2010 season. Revis recorded four interceptions, and he led the league in passer rating against. The former first-round pick is undoubtedly the best cover man in football.
Jeremy Kerley: The rookie wide receiver had an excellent season, as he emerged as a difference maker. Although he did have fumbling issues, Kerley showed that he can be a reliable slot receiver and return man, as well as a terrific wildcat option. The TCU product is a big piece of Gang Green's future.
Aaron Maybin: The former bust has finally found a home with the Jets, as he led the team in sacks in 2011. The 23-year-old was one of the only consistent pass rushers on New York's defense, and he had a knack for making big plays. Maybin was a terrific signing, and he has a bright future ahead of him.
Dustin Keller: For the first time in his career, the talented tight end managed to put together a complete season. Keller led the team in catches (65) and receiving yards (815), while also recording five touchdown grabs. He is the team's most consistent receiving threat.
Joe McKnight: Although he also struggled with fumbles, the second-year man was a big time playmaker this season. The USC product led the league in yards per kick return, and he was a solid runner as well. McKnight will be a terrific change of pace back next season behind Shonn Greene.
