With the 29th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft…the Jets select cornerback Kyle Wilson, from Boise State.


Anybody who watched last year’s AFC Championship Game, knows the Jets need help at corner. Last year’s trade for Lito Sheppard didn’t work out because he couldn’t stay healthy and was inconsistent when he actually was on the field. Dwight Lowery lacks the speed and overall skill set to be a starter in the NFL and Donald Strickland will likely be cut because similar to Sheppard, he can’t stay healthy. At this point in the draft, the only corner taken has been Florida’s Joe Haden and I was a little torn between Wilson or Patrick Robinson of Florida State but in the end I decided to go with Wilson. At this point of the first round, he is a good value pick and fills a major need.

Wilson’s stock improved after a very strong showing the entire Senior Bowl week. He has decent size (5’10, 190 lbs) and very good speed, along with strong man to man skills. Wilson is also a factor in the return game. In four years at Boise State, he finished with 11 interceptions and 27 pass breakups. Wilson was also durable, playing in 50 games over the course of his career.
