Riding high off of setting the Ohio State record for sacks with 14.5 in 13 games, Vernon Gholston declared for the 2008 NFL Draft. So the Jets used their sixth overall pick on Gholston. Taking a defensive player is probably exactly what head coach Rex Ryan wanted, but Gholston was taken waaaaay too high. After three seasons with New York, Gholston was released. One of the most shocking stats during that three-year span: Over 600 players recorded at least one sack and Gholson was not one of them.
