Pick 18 in 2003 is a familiar name, Calvin Pace. He was selected by Arizona. He was thought of as a bust up until his final year in the desert when a position change from defensive end to outside linebacker improved his productivity. He went on to have a nice career with his second team, the Jets.
The last time the Jets owned pick 18 was 2000. They selected Chad Pennington with the third of their four first round picks that year.
