This is true, typically only the OLB in a 3-4 succeed. Vilma isn't the typical 3-4 linebacker, he was wore down as the season went on fighting blockers. I will say that the Jets have experimented in playing situational 4-3 this year as well. I wouldn't expect his numbers to be over 80 tackles, with only a few sacks, FF, FR to help his stats.
