Well, I guess we have to go back to the first round for our “Looking Back….” series.

As many of you already know, we have been looking at the Jets’ draft picks in the upcoming draft, and going back to 2000 to see the players that were chosen in the Jets position in previous years. This way, we can see how often the position has yielded stars, talented players, or players that never made it.

Well, with the goings-on from yesterday, we need to double back to the first round. The Jets now have, in addition to the ninth pick overall, the 13th pick overall. With that move, let’s go back and take a look at the 13th overall choice since the year 2000, and see who has been chosen through the years:

2000: Shaun Ellis, DE

The look back starts in 2000, and the Jets had the choice. That choice Shaun Ellis, defensive end from Tenneessee, started nearly every game with the team between 2000 and 2010.

2001: Marcus Stroud, DE

Stroud was a productive starter from his years with the Jaguars (2001-2007), and the Bills (2008-2010). Influential in the pass rush, Stroud recorded multiple sacks in every season except for 2005 with the Jaguars.

2002: Donte Stallworth, WR

Stallworth is a talented wide receiver with upside. He has posted one 70 reception season while with the Saints, and although he has never received, 1,000 yards in a season, he was close in the 70 reception year with 945 yards. He has had legal troubles off the field, all contributing to a mediocre career.

2003: Ty Warren, DE

Another guy that fit into the puzzle/his role admirably. Starting in 2004, Warren started every game along the Pats’ defensive line through 2009. He was always a consistent performer, never letting his tackle total to drop out of the 40s, and peeking with 84 in 2006.

2004: Lee Evans, WR

Evans did post 2 different 1,000 yard seasons, he always had, with a couple of exceptions, reception totals in the 40s and 50s. His stats are hardly terrible, they just aren’t high enough to be worthy of the pick that was used on him.

2005: Jammal Brown, T

After arriving in New Orleans in 2005, Brown started nearly every game between his selection in 2005 through the end of the 2011 season. The only really significant way to judge his time with his team is how often he started. If you start as often as Brown did, it is clearly of high-caliber.

    no shame in most of those picks. as always i’ll be hoping for someone to exceed the quality you just listed. i don’t care what position we draft, we need someone at virtually every spot, just get us a future hall of famer! uh and don’t let him go…

      Amen to that my loyal fan

        alan, i so much enjoy this site and the lack of ignorant commenters. the nonsense i read yesterday and today about me first makes me not want to read comments. by nature i am very sarcastic. it is so hard to control myself when someone says something dimwitted. for example, they’re crying on tjb about the trade and i commented if he was worth 16 mil ‘teams would be lining up trying to trade for him. he has priced himself beyond his value.’ which he did. imbecile says ‘ it only takes one team to set the value. glad to clear that up for you’ i told him if the jets thought he was worth 16 mil they’d have signed him. they don’t, they didn’t and he should be content knowing he is in complete agreement with gary meyers. i really don’t wanna get banned for my comments and despite my claims to change my name to justin optimist i don’t create new names to post under. keep it up and it’s nice to know someone who thinks like myself. i don’t feel so dumb. :-)

          thanks…I like to think we are developing a pretty intelligent group of Jets fans around here.
          No need to feel dumb…everyone is allowed an opinion. You are plenty smart enough to listen to what makes sense and dismiss what doesn’t.

            Thanks Alan, I appreciate that. What do you think of Vincent’s scenario?

          • TheJetPress

            It’s an interesting one I hadn’t thought of. I love it, the idea of trading down to stockpile picks is one that am a big fan of. That’s the way to get better.
