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.
#29, selected C Nick Mangold, from DE John Abraham to Atlanta Falcons
#35 to Washington (LB Rocky McIntosh) for 2007's #37.
#163 to Washington (S Reed Doughty) for QB Patrick Ramsey .
2007 #177 from TE Doug Jolley to Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
2007 #212 to Dallas Cowboys (CB Courtney Brown) for TE Sean Ryan.
2008 #226 from QB Brooks Bollinger to Minnesota Vikings.
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).
#14 and #191 from Carolina Panthers for #25 (LB Jon Beason), #59 (C Ryan Kalil) and #164 (LB Tim Shaw). The Jets picked CB Darrelle Revis at #14.
#47 and #235 from Green Bay Packers for #63 (RB Brandon Jackson), #89 (S Aaron Rouse) and #191 (LB Korey Hall) above. The Jets picked LB David Harris at #47.
#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.
#30, selected TE Dustin Keller for #36 (WR Jordy Nelson) and #113 (see below) to Green Bay.
#67 and #141 to Carolina for DT Kris Jenkins. The Panthers selected CB Charles Godfrey and then TE Gary Barnidge.
#113 and 2009 #76 came from LB Jonathan Vilma and Jets 2009 #118 (LB Stanley Arnoux) to New Orleans Saints.
#113, selected CB Dwight Lowery and #162, selected QB Erik Ainge after trading with Green Bay for #102 (DE Jeremy Thompson).
#226, from Bollinger to Vikings in 2006, was traded to the Oakland Raiders (WR Chaz Schilens). I'm not sure what the Jets received in return.
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).

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.
