Woody Johnson: D'Brickashaw Ferguson Was One of the Finest Players in Jets History

Randy Lange got comments from Woody Johnson about left tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson.

"There are a few things you hope for when you select a player fourth overall in the NFL draft," Johnson said. "First, you want him to be a responsible citizen and role model. Second, you want him to be a leader in the locker room. Third, you want him to be reliable while performing at a high level for a number of seasons.

"D'Brickashaw has exceeded each of these expectations during his career and will be remembered as one of the finest players in Jets history. We know that Brick and his wife Kirsten will bring these same qualities and success into the next phase of their life together."

That sums it up nicely. By any measure, D'Brickashaw was a wildly successful fourth overall pick. When you look at some of the players the Jets could have picked, it is clear the team chose wisely.
