He has yet to get a sack. After 2 3/4 years, the 6th pick of the 2008 draft has yet to record a sack. Wow, that's umbelievable.

Even OUR boy did better then that!

He's a beast! Maybe he didn't wanna get penalties/fines like J. Harrison. Probably just there to collect his paycheck then run.
This is a perfect example for all the idiots who enjoy losing for a higher draft pick
Was extremely overrated at Ohio State. Never saw anything special with him. My co-worker who lives in Ohio laughed when the Jets took Gholston.

You would think he would have at least 1 even by accident, (better player runs QB into not so good player or QB trips and you just touch him)
Maybin from the Bills is headed the same route Gholston is. He hasnt even been active on gamedays for some games this year. Big time disappointment for the bills

And all the yahoos that say "draft [insert player]! So and so sucks!"

You amateurs don't know a damn thing. It takes talent to evaluate talent.

So the Jets picked Gholston based on the opinions of fans? I might be mistaken but I'm pretty sure some professional talent evaluators made that pick. Don't quote me on that, but I'm pretty sure about it...

I must have missed it, but I heard every team was going to try this for the next draft. I'm sure every NFL team will go to this front office management style in order to relieve themselves of responsibility for making bad picks on occasion. Since the talented professional talent evaluators are perfect, they want to make the draft more exciting by allowing room for error which has never been there because they aren't amateurs like you and I, they are talented...

The guy has never shown/brought any sort of 'emotion' to the battlefield, and this was cited as an 'underwhelmed/under-analyzed' issue coming out of that draft.

Just re-watch that 2008 draft, the moment Gholston finds out he's been drafted to the Jets there's a look of sheer disgust on his face! No kidding!
lol, i thought he was a O-linmen
