2011 BGN Community Mock Draft Pick #30: The New York Jets

EDITOR'S NOTE: Since EaglesandRavensFan is kinda late with his pick (and by kinda late, I mean about six hours) I'm going to pop in a quick pick here to keep the mock rolling.

With the thirtieth pick in the 2011 BGN Mock Draft, Bob_Q selects...

Akeem Ayers - DE/OLB, UCLA

After releasing former first-round pick Vernon Gholston earlier this month, the Jets badly need a player who can boost their defensive end position. Trevor Pryce and Shaun Ellis are well into their thirties and Mike DeVito, who started 11 games on the right side last year, failed to come up with a single sack.

In Ayers, the Jets will get a productive, edge-rushing end with the versatility to fill in at linebacker. Should he fall this far in the real draft, Ayers would likely be an option too tempting for the defensive-minded Rex Ryan to pass up.

Next on the clock will be stash600 with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
