The Jets came into the draft with holes all over the roster and Tannenbaum had a ton of pressure to fill them.
After not making a huge impact in free agency and with limited cap room, the Jets needed to find multiple players who could make a big impact immediately.
So what did the Jets do? Draft players with their first two picks who have huge question marks about their immediate production.
It seems they are still suffering post-traumatic stress disorder from Vernon Gholston and understandably so.
The positive on the Jets draft is that it seems that most of the Jets selections were players who were slated to go higher than where they were picked. It appears the Jets got tremendous value on a number of their picks and could find a gem or two in the late rounds.
Draft classes can never fairly be evaluated until the players have a couple of years to develop, but it's fun to have an initial reaction anyway.
