NFL.com is doing a feature on the best and worst draft picks for each teams throughout its history, and here's the Jets:



http://www.nfl.com/n...rst-draft-picks


Not much to argue with, but Dewayne Robertson could perhaps have featured.

I was going to post my top ten picks in the last ten seasons, as well as a selection of the worst, but looking over our recent history we've got pretty decent value. There have been a couple notable stinkers - Vernon Gholston and Robertson being the most notable along with Mike Nugent. But otherwise we've drafted quite well. Saying that, in the last couple years the quality has tailed off slightly.


A handful of our first round picks - Vilma, Revis, Mangold, Ferguson, Keller and Wilkerson have all provided above their value. Kyle Wilson may not have lived up to his status as a first rounder, but he has not been terrible, while Sanchez was under centre the two years we got to the AFC Championship game.


But what's most striking is what we've done with mid-late round picks. We've selected four ace kick returners - Justin Miller, Leon Washington, Brad Smith and Joe McKnight, two of whom also added value on offense. Jerricho Cotchery, Sione Pouha, Kerry Rhodes, Erik Coleman, David Harris and Jeremy Kerley have all been above average starters too.

Then we've had good value from others - Victor Hobson was a solid starter before the transition to the 3-4, Shonn Greene was effective, especially during our playoff runs, while Matt Slauson was a 6th rounder well spent. The likes of Drew Coleman, Dwight Lowery and Eric Smith have offered solid depth too.

Two notable players got away from us - Derrick Ward went onto the Giants and formed an impressive one-two-three punch with Bradshaw and Jacobs, while Joel Dreesen has helped the Texans and Broncos at TE after being one of our late round selection. Others disappointed, like second rounders Derrick Strait, Kellen Clemens and Ducasse.


If our scouting can deliver this year - especially in a draft that isn't as top heavy with talent - then hopefully we'll be able to restore a solid core throughout the line-up.
