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.
