Summary

The Jets have put together one of the best collections of defensive line talent in the league, and it's led by Wilkerson since he's been there the longest. Given that he's a 2-way end who plays in a 3-4 defense, his sack numbers are not going to catch your attention most years. But, he consistently ranks among the league leaders in tackles for the DL position, and that allows him to put up solid numbers in most weeks. There is a risk he could be a holdout as Wilkerson is entering the final year of his contract, and the Jets may have landed a replacement when Leonard Williams fell to them in this year's draft.
