Gholston needs more drive

Posted Feb 18, 2009

According to SI's Peter King, the Jets previous staff didn't see enough drive from Vernon Gholston.

"I can tell you the staff that coached him last year saw next to nothing in him -- and saw very little of the drive a great player needs in order to succeed," wrote King.

Speaking of drive, former coach Eric Mangini was a driving force behind this pick.
