A part of the Jets past draft strategy that bugs me...
Is how they treat late round picks, as in they don't value them at all. I like quite a few of Tannebaums moves over the years but he has a real disregard for late picks and casually tosses them into deals when perhaps not necessary. He also makes no real attempt to accumulate later round picks.
Now I've heard people say that later round picks (6th, 7th rounders) are not much more valueable than undrafted free agents player quality wise. The big difference is you 100% for sure get the best player on your list as opposed to fighting it out with 30 other teams to get UFA's.
Having some extra later rounders also allows you to take flyers on good athletes with no true position.
I don't mind the Jets trading picks to move up to take guys they really like I just hate when they just toss away picks or get poor value in trades (ie the Leon Washington deal, the Gocong trade.)
