We have the 38th position filled on the GGN All Time Jets Team. The winner of the third vote at Offensive Tackle is: Marvin Powell!
Marvin Powell played 11 years in the NFL, from 1977 through 1987, the first nine years with the Jets. Powell was the Jets’ first selection in the legendary Jets draft class of 1977 that began the rebuild leading up to the playoff teams of the 1980s. Marvin Powell was arguably the best offensive tackle in the NFL from the late 1970s through the mid 1980s, earning Pro Bowl honors five straight years from 1979 through 1983 and earning first team All Pro honors three times. Powell was so dominant he probably deserves to be in the Hall of Fame, and he richly deserves his spot on the GGN All Time Jets Team.
From now until mid July I’ll be putting up a daily poll asking GGN to vote on the best Jets players of all time. The idea here is to build a 55 man roster of the best players ever to wear the Green and White. The roster will consist of 26 offensive players, 26 defensive players, and three special team players.
Wide Receiver: 6
Running Back: 4
Tight End: 3
OFFENSIVE TACKLE: 4

Every day I will be putting up a poll at one position. The choices will be limited to players who were on the Jets roster for at least three seasons. I will not be including players who were great for other teams but not great for the Jets (for example, guys like Matt Forte or LaDainian Tomlinson will not be included in the polls, though both those guys would be excluded for not meeting the three year rule as well). Each day we will close the previous day’s poll and the candidate with the most votes will be added to the GGN All Time Jets Team. In the event of a tie vote both players will be added to the team.
In the event I have made an egregious omission and a name you think should be on the poll is not there you can write in candidates in the comments section. If a player gets support in the comments section I’ll add him to the next day’s poll.
So let’s get to it. Today we vote on the fourth and final spot at the offensive tackle position. Who will it be? Vote early, vote often, and let’s hear who you think are the best players ever to have played for the New York Jets.
Who is the fourth best Jets offensive tackle of all time?
