In 2009, he chose only three guys, but they are all offensive starters, Mark Sanchez, Shonn Greene, and Matt Slauson. Over the next two years, notable picks have been Kyle Wilson, Joe McKnight, Mo Wilkerson, Kenrick Ellis, and Jeremy Kerley. These are all guys that we all consider important. Mike Tannenbaum picked these guys.

Tannenbaum has made other quality moves during his tenure as well. He traded for Thomas Jones in 2007. In 2008, Alan Faneca and Tony Richardson were signed. Free agent Calvin Pace joined the defense that year. Damien Woody was brought in during 2008 as well. Brett Favre was acquired as well, although that didn’t end well, fact is that he didn’t give up much (conditional 4th round pick) for Favre.

2009 saw the acquistion of Braylon Edwards via a blockbuster trade in October of that season. I won’t even bring Jim Leonhard and Bart Scott into the equation, since they followed coach Rex Ryan to the team.

2010 saw the signings of LaDainian Tomlinson to replace Thomas Jones, and Jason Taylor to act as a pass rushing specialist. Jeff Cumberland was signed as an undrafted free agent. And don’t forget the acquisiton of Aaron “Mayhem” Maybin. Mixed in earlier in his tenure is the best WR so far this camp, Patrick Turner.

    Adam, You’re using the same lame photo of Tannen-BOMB in the rain with a slightly longer list of draft picks that panned out for an accountant playing GM. He’s not qualified, so why are you supporting him? Respect the fans, not the front office. I might not know much about law, but I can from my living room that the team needed a Right Tackle in top two/three rounds. What about guys like Bryce Brown and Vontaze Burflict in the seventh round? This GM sucks, and sob do you if you keep insisting he’s your guy.
