    New York Jets: GRADE: A-

    The motto of the Jets' draft was quality over quantity. Mark Sanchez's selection made this team's draft because he's a franchise-maker. New coach Rex Ryan likes his defense, so the organization felt it could focus on the offense in his first draft. The Jets picked up Iowa running back Shonn Greene, who will fit into the rotation with Leon Washington and Thomas Jones. Guard Matthew Slauson was an OK pick in the sixth round, but the key to this draft is up top with Greene and Sanchez.[/QUOTE]

    The only team he gave a better grade to was the Packers, who did have a very nice draft. I think that's kind of cool. I know it's only Mel Kiper, but for someone to say we had the second best draft with only 3 picks means we got some impact players.

    So it only took 20 years for Kiper to acknowledge that, just maybe, the Jets really DO know what the NFL Draft is all about??

    Up until a few years ago, they had made a lot of really dumb picks. Do I really have to bring up Kyle Brady?

    Good news is that we're seeming to get good value on the UDFA front too.

    That's true.

    If nothing else at least this team hasn't been a laughing stock like the bad old days.
