Gholston is a Jet

The Big Apple is embracing guns

The New York Jets have selected Vernon Gholston with the 6th pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. Gholston will be going to a team that runs a 3-4, so he figures to get some looks at linebacker in New York. If he can make the adjustment and play up to the potential of his pipe size, the Jets will have one of the better young linebacker groups in the NFL. Former Wolverine David Harris had a monster rookie year, including a 20 tackle game.

Meanwhile, I remain baffled how the first two picks took 11 minutes. Seeing how each of those selections basically had contracts in hand before the draft.
