Mike Tannenbaum has had an up and down few years heading the Jets draft. For Mark Sanchez and Dustin Keller, you can match up a Vernon Gholston and a Vladimir Ducasse. But he had a great year in 2006, a draft that yielded 5 players that have made significant contributions. This weekend, despite the bad reviews (see Mel Kiper’s C grade among others), I believe that this year’s draft could potentially be that good.

Let’s look back at 2006 first, a draft as we mentioned before that yielded 5 significant players:

  • Nick Mangold
  • D’Brickashaw Ferguson
  • Brad Smith
  • Eric Smith
  • Leon Washington

Five guys that were significant performers on the Jets, 3 that still are.

Now let’s fast forward to the draft that just ended.
