2008 NFL Rookie Previews: Vernon Gholston

Player preview on Vernon Gholston who was the #6 of the NFL picks in the 2008 NFL draft from Ohio State University to the New York Jets!

Number 6 Pick: New York Jets Vernon Gholston (LB, Ohio State)

Vernon GholstonThe Jets needed a guy to compliment Calvin Rush as an outside rusher. They have now have that guy in Vernon Gholston. Gholston, a 64, 264 pound beast out of Ohio State University is a stud athlete with great speed, and agility. Gholston was recorded with a time of 4.56 seconds in the 40 meter run. His strength is also quite impressive, as he can bench press 455 pounds and squat 405 pounds 20 times.

At Ohio State, Gholston's career got off to a slow start. He saw very little action during the 2004 season and he suffered an injury that caused him to sit most of the 2005 season. During the 2006 season, Vernon was named second time All Big Ten, and placed fifth in the conference with 8.5 sacks. His presence was also felt in other ways as he had two pass breakups and an interception. He ranked sixth on his team with 49 tackles.

In 2007, Gholston earned All-American recognition and was a finalist for the Ted Hendricks Award, given to the nation's top defensive end. He posted 37 tackles (25 solo) and was a terror in the backfield, ranking eighth in the nation with 15.5 stops behind the line of scrimmage and second nationally with 14 sacks. He also scooped up a fumble and returned it for a 25-yard touchdown.

Gholston played his high school football at Cass Technical School in Detroit, Michigan. He was named All-State first time as an offensive lineman. During his one season on defense, he garnered 75 tackles, and 6 sacks.

Some question with his size if he would be best served to move to outside linebacker, but we will let the Jets take care of that. No matter where this stud plays on the field, he is sure to make plays. His strength along with his speed are unmatched when it comes to rookies at that position. He never had a problem competing at Ohio State, and we highly doubt he will show any signs of struggling once he joins the NFL.
