    The Ghosts of Drafts Past

    I am going to the draft on Friday, got a couple of gift VIP tickets. Its my first time at the event and I am very excited. I did a little research of the [B]Jets 2nd Round Draft History[/B] .... It is Brutal !!! Since 1995 ....

    1995 – Matt O’Dwyer OG Northwestern ( Pick number 1 in second round)
    1996 – Alex Van Dyke WR Nevada (Pick number 1 in second round)
    1997 – Rick Terry DT North Carolina (Pick number 1 in second round)
    1998 – Dorian Boose DE Washington ST
    1999 – Randy Thomas OG Miss St
    2000 - NONE
    2001 – Lamont Jordan RB Maryland
    2002 – Jon McGraw S K-State
    2003 – Victor Hobson LB Michigan
    2004 - NONE
    2005 – Mike Nugent K Ohio St, Justin Miller CB/KR Clemson
    2006 – Kellen Clemens QB Oregon
    2007 – David Harris LB Jets
    2008 - NONE
    2009 - NONE
    2010 – Vlad Ducasse OL UMASS
    2011 - NONE


    No long term investment in any player. I would say only Thomas, Jordan, Hobson, and Miller were worth the paper there name was written on....

    Harris is the best of the bunch, but Jesus they whiffed on nearly every second round pick in the mid-late 90's.

    Odwyer and Randy Thomas were both very good Guards. I wouldnt mind having guys like that on this team right now.

    I still can't believe we picked a kicker in the 2nd round.

    Glad you stopped at 1995. Don't look any further back into the past. Though D Byrd in '89 was well on his way. And Gastineau in '79! But really, the Jets have been awful historically in Rd 2. Maybe that's why we have been trading that pick so often in recent years!

    the past is nice to look at but irrelevant

    since 2006 the Jets have been one of the BEST teams in the NFL at handling the annual draft


    Ferguson, Mangold, Revis, Harris, Sanchez, Greene, Keller, Slaussen, Wilson, McKnight, Connor, Wilkerson, Ellis, Powell, Kerley

    sure, nobody is perfect and Gholston was a huge bust and Vlad might be a second one...

    but overall, two hall of famers and multiple probowlers is a very good haul by NFL standards

    Not sure what those guys are doing on the list. I didn't know you praise for selecting middling players. And I was being generous by not including Wilkerson, who had a very good rookie year, who needs to take a step forward this year before we can really call him a great pick.

    I thought I was alone on the island of VLAD IS A BUST.

    Also, notice the lack of picks from 2008 forward..... current management trades picks like candy for older veterans.

    Veterans, once... Older? Not really

    2008 - Jets trade up for Dustin Keller
    2010 - Jets trade up for Mark Sanchez
    2011 - Jets trade for Antonio Cromartie (Age 27)

    In fact the other Jets recent trades for higher draft picks

    Braylon Edwards (Age 26)
    Santonio Holmes (Age 25)
    Kris Jenkins (age 29) - Only exception.

    could have been worse, Mike

    they could have pissed away something like 60 picks since 2006 on Hall of Famer high rounders like Lawrence Maroney, Chad Jackson, Brandon Meriwether, Kareem Brown, Patrick Chung, Devin McCourty and Nate Solder

    The '05 draft has to go down as one of the biggest monuments to ineptitude. If it wasn't for Kerry Rhodes you can say the Jets would not have added one productive player as a result of that entire draft.
