New York Jets fans have a love-hate relationship with the NFL draft.  

Without fail, they represent the draft's loudest fanbase every year, and they usually leave believing they will either be Super Bowl champions or picking at the top of the draft the next year, depending on their selections.  

While Jets fans love to get hyped for the draft, they recognize that there is a long history of worst-case scenarios that have come true over the years.  

Picking Johnny Lam Jones over Anthony Munoz, Ken O'Brien over Dan Marino, Al Toon over Jerry Rice, Kyle Brady over Warren Sapp and Dewayne Robertson over Terrell Suggs have kept the franchise in neutral most of the past three decades.

The Jets also came one pick away from drafting Brett Favre in 1993 and still are left in wonderment how 198 players were selected ahead of Tom Brady, who landed in the worst possible place for the Jets. 

Jets fans know that anything can happen in the NFL draft, and they usually expect the worst.  

With their history, can anyone blame them?

As the 2012 draft approaches, there are any number of things that can go wrong for the Jets.  Here's a look at the eight worst-case scenarios for the Jets in the 2012 NFL Draft.
