With the thirtieth pick of the 2011 CSC Community Mock Draft, the New York Jets (chosen by jful/compiled by Dave Cariello) select...
Akeem Ayers, OLB/DE, UCLA
- Height: 6'3"
- Weight: 254 lbs.
- Arm Length: 33 in.
- Hand Size: 9 in.
- College: UCLA
- Conference: Pac 10
- Position: LB
Ayers is very impressive on the hoof and he has the speed and athleticism to make an immediate impact at the next level. He has the range and ball skills to play strong side linebacker in a 4-3, and the balance and closing burst to play outside linebacker in a 3-4. He lacks the lower body strength to be stout against the run, but uses his long arms to keep blockers away from his body and flashes the ability to quickly shed. Ayers is a versatile athlete with great measurables that projects to be selected in the middle of the first round.
Ayers is tall with a thick muscular build. Possesses the speed to make plays from sideline-to-sideline. Very capable edge rusher that shows good bend and a closing burst. Very athletic kid that has the ball skills to make interceptions and flashes playmaking abilities. Delivers violent shots tackling and uses his length to make plays even when he is out of position.
A little late reading his keys and can get caught out of position. Does not have the lower body strength to blow up blockers in run support. Lacks consistent footwork in his back pedal and allows tight ends and backs to get behind him at times. Tends to tackle a bit high.
Thanks to all the CSC members who participated in this years community mock draft. Without your help, none of this would be possible.
