Under Gang Green's new GM John Idzik, all 7 draft picks made the 53 man roster. The Jets remained even with their selections this year, as they received a pick from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for CB Darrelle Revis, and traded one to the New Orleans Saints for RB Chris Ivory. Before we head into the season to find out how the 7 drafted rookies pan out, let's take a look back at former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum's tenure and see which picks were traded for and away, and for whom.
#35 to Washington (LB Rocky McIntosh) for 2007's #37.
2007 #177 from TE Doug Jolley to Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The other draft picks were LT D'Brickashaw Ferguson (#4), QB Kellen Clemens (#49), LB Anthony Schlegel (#76), S Eric Smith (#97), WR Brad Smith (#103), RB Leon Washington (#117), TE Jason Pociask (#150), CB Drew Coleman (#189) and T Titus Adams (#220).
#177, selected OT Jacob Bender from Jolley to Bucs in 2006.
#235, selected WR Chansi Stuckey from the Harris trade up.
2009 #115 for LG Pete Kendall to Washington. This was a conditional pick that could have been a 2008 5th round instead.
2009 #83 to Green Bay for QB Brett Favre. The Packers traded this below.
#5, selected QB Mark Sanchez after trading #17, #52, QB Brett Ratliff, DE Kenyon Coleman and S Abram Elam to Cleveland. #17 was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (QB Josh Freeman), and at #52 the Browns selected DE David Veikune. What Cleveland got in return for the #17 gets complicated with other trades.
#65, selected RB Shonn Greene for #76 (LB DeAndre Levy), #115 (DT Sammie Lee Hill) and #228 (OT Lydon Murtha) to the Detroit Lions. #76 originally was from the '08 Vilma to Saints trade (conditional), while #115 was from the '07 Kendall trade (conditional).
The other draft pick was G Matt Slauson (#193).
#124 above came from S Kerry Rhodes to Arizona Cardinals. The Jets also received 2011 #208.
#155 (originally from the Sheppard trade in 2009) to Pittsburgh for WR Santonio Holmes. The Steelers traded this pick to Arizona (QB John Skelton) for CB Bryant McFadden and the Cardinals' #195 (WR Antonio Brown).
The other draft picks were CB Kyle Wilson (#29) and OL Vladimir Ducasse (#61).
#208, selected QB Greg McElroy, part of Rhodes to Cardinals in 2009.
#227 from the Eagles trade above, selected WR Scotty McKnight.
The other draft picks were DE Muhammad Wilkerson (#30), DT Kenrick Ellis (#94) and RB Bilal Powell (#126).
#214 above came from trading CB Dwight Lowery to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The other draft selections were DE Quinton Coples (#16) and LB Demario Davis (#77), as well as the four compensatory picks of RB Terrance Ganaway (#202), OL Robert Griffin #203), S Antonio Allen (#242) and WR Jordan White (#244).
In conclusion... well, there's really not much to conclude. As The Dude would say, there's a lotta in, a lotta outs, a lot of what-have-you's. I just wanted to present this where-are-they-now of sorts, and hopefully it made sense for you. If you can even read it. It took me forever just to figure out how to arrange it. And I hope I was able to include all of the trades under Mr. T because as The Dude would say, this is a lotta strands to keep in my head man.
