Morning Coffee! Amukamara, Wilkerson Newest New Yorkers

Good morning, New York/New Jersey sports fans! Round 1 of the 2011 NFL Draft is in the books and it certainly seems like New York Giants and New York Jets fans are happy with the players selected by their respective teams.

The Giants found a player considered a top 10 talent on most draft boards sitting there for them at No. 19, and were more than happy to snap up Nebraska cornerback Prince Amukamara. See Big Blue View for a lot more on the pick.

The Jets found a player who should fit nicely along the front line in their 3-4 in Temple's Muhammad Wilkerson. The fact that he is from Linden, N.J. is a bonus. See Gang Green Nation for discussion of the pick.
