It's no secret that the New York Jets are not compiled with spring chickens at the defensive end position. So expect to see 4-5 defensive ends on this list, as it is perhaps the most glaring need in the 2010 draft. Some will say wide receivers could be a need, but there are unproven young receivers who will have a chance to break out in 2009.
The 2009 New York Jets defensive ends will consist of 32-year-olds Marques Douglas and Sean Ellis, backed by undrafted players like Mike Devito, Sione Pouha, and Zach Potter. There is a obvious need to bring in young talent.
There is no guarantee that Dunlap will be available for the 2010 draft, however if he does choose to leave school early he will be a hot commodity in several draft rooms.
Dunlap has it all: agility, strength, and quickness. He is a powerful player, standing at 6'6". He is a very aggressive competitor who will fall under the category of a "Rex Ryan-guy." He's consistently displayed the ability to stop the run and get to the quarterback.
He will need to show consistency again this year but he managed to get to the quarterback nine times last season for the sack and even when he is not getting to the quarterback, he is taking on blockers to allow other people to make the plays.
