2011 NFL Mock Draft: Rex Ryan Drafts Defense with the 30th Pick in 2011 Draft
The Jets Take Phil Taylor As They Look To Take Out Patriots And Make Super Bowl
The New York Jets have a very good defense, but Phil Taylor will be the future anchor of the Jets defense. Taylor has a lot of talent, and if not for some marks against him from his time at Penn State, Taylor might have been considered a Top 10 pick.
Taylor fills an area of need, and allows the Jets to build from the draft. With as many free agents as the Jets have this year, the defensive line represents an area they can improve without having to go into the free agent market.
With so many free agent questions, Taylor fits a need that doesn't involve a veteran waiting to sign a contract. Plus he will be a playmaker on the defense, which you can't have enough of when you play the Patriots twice a year.
The Jets could try and move up with this pick, but a lot depends on who is taken before the Jets come on the clock.
