I am not a huge Akeem Ayers fan. He may be better suited to a 4-3 defense rather than a 3-4.
My understanding based on some film that I've seen and most things that I read is that he would fit in both systems. He is very quick and can get sideline-to-sideline as well as a great tackler. I think Rex could draw up some schemes utilizing his speed in rushing the passer.
I don't want a guy who needs schemes drawn up to get pressure on the QB. The Jets do that in their defense already. I want a guy who is able to get in on his own and cause havoc in the backfield. The Jets get that and suddenly the blitzes are that much more deadly, and they can even drop off in coverage from time to time.
