RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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
