Who’s ready for some football? Draft!!!

Anyway, while the day has been approaching, we have been looking back. Specifically, we are looking back since 2000, and the picks the Jets have in the upcoming draft, and look back at the type of players that were selected in these spots.

Today, we begin the look back at the Jets’ 3rd selection in the upcoming draft, the 72nd choice overall, and see the players chosen in that spot since the year 2000, starting with the year 2000:

Kenrick Clancy was chosen with the 72nd pick overall in the 2000 draft. He hung around the league through 2009 playing for the Steelers, Giants, the Cardinals, and the Saints:
