2011 NFL Predictions: New York Jets Key Defensive Players Final Stats

1 of 7

    With Gang Green's regular season opener against the Dallas Cowboys just days away, I thought it would be fun to predict the final regular season stats for all of the Jets.

    Here are the final regular season stats for each major Jets defensive player, starting with the best cornerback in the league, Darrelle Revis. 

Darrelle Revis

2 of 7

    Final Stats: 47 tackles, 3 interceptions, 1 touchdown, 2 fumble recoveries

    The league's best cornerback will have another banner year in 2011, as he will manage to record a few interceptions with just limited passes being thrown his way.

    The perennial All Pro will lead the Jets defense, and make it one of the most feared in all of football.

    I expect the former first round pick to win the AP Defensive Player of the Year for the first time in his superb career this season. 

Antonio Cromartie

3 of 7

    Final Stats: 43 tackles, 5 interceptions, 1 touchdown, 1 fumble recovery

    The Jets consolation prize for Nnamdi Asomugha will put up numbers better than Asomugha's this season.

    The former Charger will have a splendid season, and help form the most feared cornerback duo in the NFL in 2011.

    Cromartie will pick off a team high five passes, and be selected to his second Pro Bowl. 

David Harris

4 of 7

    Final Stats: 72 tackles, 4.5 sacks, 3 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 1 fumble recovery

    David Harris will have a terrific season in 2011, as he will put together the most complete campaign of his brief career.

    The Michigan product will lead the Jets formidable linebacking corp, and establish himself as one of the premier inside linebackers in football. 

Bart Scott

5 of 7

    Final Stats: 63 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 1 forced fumble

    Bart Scott will have another typical Bart Scott season in 2011.

    The hard hitting inside linebacker will finish third on the team in tackles, while finishing with the most sacks in a single season since 2006.

    The former Raven will light up opposing offenses, while showing that he "Can's Wait" for the postseason. 

Jim Leonhard

6 of 7

    Final Stats: 76 tackles, 2 sacks, 2 interceptions, 2 forced fumbles, 2 fumble recoveries

    The Jets strong safety will have the strongest season of his career in 2011, as he will be a major contributor in all areas.

    The Wisconsin alumni will finish second in the team in tackles, while also being the team's primary punt returner.

    The former Raven will lead the safety corps, and head to his first Pro Bowl. 

Muhammad Wilkerson

7 of 7

    Final Stats: 33 tackles, 7 sacks

    The Jets first round pick will have a major impact in his rookie season.

    The dynamic defensive end will lead the team in sacks, and finally fix the Gang Green pass rush situation.

    The Rutgers product will become a fan favorite in his terrific first season, while also contending for Defensive Rookie of the Year with other big name rookies.
