Darrelle Revis is a first-round pick who has worked out better than the Jets could have imagined. Vernon Gholston, taken in the first round just a year later, has not.
Revis was asked about the pressures of being a first-round pick – and how that might affect Gholston’s development -- in today’s locker room session.
“You shouldn’t feel pressure,” he said. “You just take everything in stride. Everything is a learning curve. Some people learn faster than others. It’s just something you go through and some people pan out and some people don’t. Vernon is working very hard and he’s doing what he needs to do to be a better player.”
