- Vinny Curry, 74 overall
- Jacob Martin, 73 overall

Starting with Lawson, he got a great acceleration rating of 88 and an 87 for finesse moves. Huff got an 89 for acceleration and an 83 for his speed. The rookie first-round pick Johnson received an 85 for his speed and a 77 block shedding. Curry got an 85 for his acceleration. The newly signed Martin got an 86 for his fast speed. The Jets have placed an emphasis on speed at edge and clearly, it is pretty evident that they have put that together with this group.
The Jets linebackers were given these ratings:
- C.J. Mosley, 82 overall
- Quincy Williams, 72 overall
- Hamsah Nasirildeen, 66 overall
- Marcell Harris, 66 overall
- Jamien Sherwood, 64 overall

Mosley was given a fantastic tackle rating of 91 and a pursuit grade of 87 as well. Williams, well known for his blazing speed, got a great rating of 87. Of the final four linebackers, each had a speed grade of 82 or better. Aside from Mosley, the Jets will need someone from this group to raise their level of play and provide some sort of consistency for the defense.
