In 2007, David Harris was brought in. Bad pick? I think not. Probably the most consistent defensive player the Jets have brought in in Tanny’s era. Oh yeah, well the most consistent player other than this guy:

Did we forget that Mike picked this guy? That’s a pretty important player for the Jets, and he was picked in the Tannenbaum era.

In 2008 he took Dustin Keller, the current quarterback’s favorite target. He’s a guy that has gotten better every year, and cannot be discounted.

I have heard a lot of people say that the above picks had more to do with Eric Mangini than Mike Tannenbaum. That’s just not fair folks. They always talk about the fact that with personnel decisions, the buck stops with Mike Tannenbaum. Did that change through his tenure? We all give him grief for picks like Vernon Gholston, it’s not fair to discredit him for the Revis pick, among many others.

By the way, several good players have been chosen since Mangini left.
