Let’s look at the players that have been chosen during his reign, that are still on the team today. 2006 yielded Nick Mangold and D’Brickashaw Ferguson. The next year gave us David Harris, and some guy named Revis. After Dustin Keller was chosen in 2008, the Jets ended up after trades, with only 3 picks in 2009′s draft. They were used for three starters, Mark Sanchez, Shonn Greene, and Matt Slauson.

The last two years of drafts have yielded Kyle Wilson, John Conner, Joe McKnight, Mo Wilkerson, Kenrick Ellis, and Jeremy Kerley.

Like I said earlier, he did draft Vernon Gholston and Vladimir Ducasse. Let’s face it, everyone makes mistakes. The man is human, and he doesn’t do it deliberately. Everything he does, is for the good of the Jets. At the time of the choice, Tannenbaum was convinced that Gholston was going to be a sack master, and that Ducasse would have been able to step into the offensive line.

With many more successes than failures, Tanny is clearly a good talent evaluator.
