If Darron Lee and Jordan Jenkins decouple well and Adams/Mayes follows suit as they should...we really could have something special at every level of the Defense.

Well, until its time to renew their contracts at 15-20mil per.

I watched Bosa play and I have hard time believing the difference between him and Jenkins is just 89 to 73, but I am sure there are a hundred variables that PFF takes into account that I can't see. 

Bosa was on a different planet. You are correct.

PFF once gave Aaron Rodgers a negative grade after a 300 yard 5 TD game. I have no idea what criteria they use to get their grades.

I thought he played well towards the end of the season. He was never expected to be a pass rushing wrecking ball. He is a calvin pace type. I think he'll be a good starter for us.

Lee...lets hope for the best. At least he's a good tackler. But he needs to turn and find the ball in coverage, and start causing some fumbles and impact plays.

A solid if unspectacular starter is very good return on a 3rd round pick.

I've said from last draft he reminds me of Mo Lewis (and I know they both went to Univ of Ga)...Mo did everything well, was steady, was played inside and out. I see the same potential in Jenkins

Everyone is looking for David Harris's replacement , but nobody's looking at Jenkins . I think that Lee and Jenkins would make an excellent pair of Inside linebackers if and when the Jets can find his replacement on the outside . During his last year, Jenkins didn't play outside, but was mostly inside at Georgia .

He is our new version of Bryan Thomas. Always setting the edge, doing the dirty work and racking up 4-6 sacks a year. Not only do we need an OLB that can do that I will take that any time for a 3rd round pick.

I think this is a solid comparison.  Jenkins will never be a dominating pass rusher.  He's the dirty work, set the edge guy you described.  It would be nice to find that guy who can consistently get to the QB.

Calvin Pace was a damn good player in his prime.  Any Jet fan would sign up for that.

Definitely, me included. I didn't say it disparagngily. I just was noting that he was never really supposed to be a 12+ sack/year OLB. 

Jenkins is gonna be a good player for us.

Well he's an OLB who doesn't get sacks or hurries but other than that he's excellent.

Just to recap, article states "only rookie better than ours was the DROY and 3rd overall pick" so logically the thread is dedicated to bitching about that players skill set.

Jordan Jenkins is gonna be awesome. If he get 7+ sacks this season chances our team is gonna end up with 6-7 wins instead of 3-4 wins. Assuming Williams and Mo also get 7+ sacks.

Jenkins is fine.  Mauldin is the guy who needs to be replaced.  The Jets need a real pass rusher at the other OLB spot.  Maulden is not the man.

Oh and you forgot to add Leo to that list

And all of them are 22 yrs old or less.
