There have been many great Jets players over the years, but who are the best at the moment?
Darrelle Revis – Revis is an absolutely astounding cornerback, who many are calling the best in the NFL. During the 2011 season at Pro Football Focus, Revis graded out with an average rating of 24.6. NFL fans and even those who prefer to play FoxyBingo but also watch some games, will know that this is an impressive statistic. While he ranks No. 9 in run defense, he has a positive score of 4.0. The cornerbacks who are above him in run defense all rank very poorly in coverage, which means that Revis comes out as a clear winner in this area. He is able to defend very well against quarterbacks and has made the All-Pro team for each of the last three seasons. He was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Year in 2009 and has made a huge impact during his NFL career.

Sione Pouha is another Jets player who deserves positive recognition. In 2011, he was rated as the best nose tackle in the NFL and has been in the game with the Jets for eight years. This means that he is integral to the team's defense and is well-known for being one of the best run-stuffers in the league.
Nick Mangold joined the Jets in 2006 as a first-round pick. He has played in the All-Pro team three times already and has been a Pro Bowler in the last four years. In 2011, he was ranked as the second best center in the NFL and he adds a lot to the defensive line. When he was absent during the 2011 season, the team suffered and this just shows how important he is to the Jets.
