    Some will disagree, but I would say Leon Washington. He wasn't elite, but had some playmaking ability.

    I won't disagree. His injury in '09 was so unfortunate - he would have given us everything LT did in '10 and '11 and possibly more.

    Will always remember his long TD run to ice the Titans game in '08 when it looked like the Jets were the best team in the AFC...the only other time I felt this good about the team in the regular season was '98.

    Moss and Coles. That's really it. Leon was and still is a ST playmaker.

    Mark Sanchez.

    Give him some time, legitimate receiving weapons, and a running game, he's the best QB we've ever had.

    Coles was a huge playmaker his first go on the Jets- but the question was drafted high? Coles I believe was drafted in the 3rd round as a RB...

    Santana Moss is probably the last 1st round pick on offense who was good--- don't quote me but I think they drafted TE Anthony Becht and Chad Pennington in the 1st round that year also.

    hmm... seems as if the Jets are known for making some of the absolute worst draft picks... and so it goes... on and on.. forever... and ever... ever.

    Coles was a receiver... And yes, he was drafted in the 3rd round.


    Coles and Moss were definitely the last two. Hoping Stephen Hill turns into another.

    Becht, Pennington, Coles, Abraham and Ellis were all drafted in 2000...what a haul that was, to bad the Jets couldn't get more out of that core.

    Becht, Pennington, Abe and Ellis were all 1st round picks in the 2000 draft. Moss was a 1st round pick in 2001.

    Johnny Lam Jones!!!


    He would be perfect for this team, another receiver with tremendous speed who couldn't catch the ball! Sound Familar?

    Say what you want about Anthony Becht but we havent had a TE that could run block like him in a long time...

    4 1st rounders in 1 years should just about guarantee a SB contending team for years. Shameful.

    Mark Sanchez in the 2010 playoffs, with some actual NFL receivers, got the job done offensively.

    I know Sanchez is in hot water now, but he's in an absolutely impossible situation with this cast of RBs, WRs, and TEs. It's sad.

    I always thought the Jets made a mistake by selecting guys with each of those picks. They could have been stockpiling picks for years (a la New England), but instead chose to take one shot at it.

    They technically hit on 3 out of 4, so not a terrible decision, but the Jets could have been living off those four picks for several years had it been played differently.
