RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Turf toe cost Wilkerson three games last year, but he still posted more than 50 tackles for the third consecutive season, adding six sacks after 10.5 in 2013. In a full season, 70 tackles and double-digit sacks wouldn't surprise, as Wilkerson has not hit his ceiling yet. He spent the offseason lobbying for a contract extension, which as of press time he hadn't received, and the Jets drafted DE Leonard Williams sixth overall this year, but those issues shouldn't keep the 6-4, 315-pound Wilkerson from being one of the league's top D-Line IDPs again this season.

2014

It looked like the Jets got themselves a steal when they drafted Wilkerson with the 30th overall pick in 2011, but few would have guessed he'd be quite as good as he is today. He won't turn 25 until October, but he's one of the best defenders in the league and probably the best player on the Jets' defense. His success has translated to IDP utility, too, as he has back-to-back seasons with more than 60 tackles, and he broke out for 10.5 sacks in 2013. That sack total might regress a bit, but there's no reason to think he won't make it to 60 tackles for the third consecutive year, and he's yet to miss a game in his three seasons. He's a good high-floor DL1 to pair with a lower-floor, big-play specialist DL2.

2013

The 2011 first-round pick is arguably the top player on the Jets' defense given the offseason departures of Bart Scott and Darrelle Revis. He's an elite run-stopper and recorded 69 tackles and five sacks. If he can avoid injury, the 23-year-old Wilkerson could be poised for his Pro Bowl season.

2012

Like Quinton Coples, Wilkerson is talented enough to push for IDP relevance despite playing in a three-man front. With the arrival of Coples, moreover, any worry Wilkerson might have had about seeing disproportionate attention from opposing blocking schemes is mostly relieved. In any case, he finished his 2010 rookie season with 49 tackles (35 solo), three sacks, one safety and a forced fumble. A naturally strong player with good athleticism for his size, Wilkerson should improve on his rookie numbers in 2012.

2011

After the departure of Shaun Ellis in free agency, Wilkerson is slated to start right away and the Jets are expecting him to immediately contribute to their pass rush. He could be worth an IDP look depending on how training camp and the preseason works out
