The Big 3 of that draft class were Devin McCourty, Kyle Wilson, and Kareem Jackson. I personally preferred McCourty becuase I saw him as a physical man corner and Wilson more as a zone specialist. At the I ranked Jackson as #3 overall becuase he was not really great at either. I had him as a nickle corner due to a lack of make up speed.
Of the big 3 only Jackson was asked to start right away and he got burnt more than Mr. Buchanan...well maybe not that much but it was still bad. Neither McCourty or Wilson were asked to start and instead provided nickle and dime coverage. Fast forward a couple of seasons and Wilson really hasn't developed as expected. A case could be made that Jackson has outplayed Wilson last year and the begining of this year. McCourty on the other hand has looked solid. While he has not looked elite, he looks like an average starting NFL cornerback.
If the Jets are smart they will try to help their young CB with safety help. This will leave large parts of the other side of the field open to Daniels, Walter, and Foster/Tate. If the Texans can establish that run game, it will force the other safety to play in tight opening up the middle of the field.
