Super Bowl lesson for Jets Dan Leberfeld

The Jets’ brass can learn a valuable lesson from Denver’s championship season.

If you are going to be a high-level 3-4 defense, you better have a pair of dynamic, edge pass-rushers at outside linebacker.

It’s a must.

Jets are loaded on the defensive line, but they need to add a game-wrecker or two at outside linebacker.

Lorenzo Mauldin showed flashes as a rookie, and could be a solid #2 or #3 outside linebacker, but the Jets need to find their own Justin Houston, Von Miller or Elvis Dumervil.

So in the first round, at 20, they need to take a long, hard look at players like . . .

Noah Spence – 6-3, 261 – Eastern Kentucky

Jaylon Smith – 6-3, 235 – Notre Dame

Emmanuel Ogbah – 6-3, 275 – Oklahoma State

Other players will be added to the list of possibilities moving forward, but you get the idea.

The Jets must land a player who will wreak havoc coming off the edge.

There is no way around that.

The Broncos hammered that point home on Sunday.
