After last season's monumental collapse and the flawed roster Mike Tannenbaum constructed, it was crucial for the New York Jets to find success in the 2012 NFL draft.

Because the Jets sent fourth and sixth-round draft choices to Denver in the Tim Tebow trade, it gave Tannenbaum less room for error.

This meant that Tannenbaumn needed to find immediate impact players with at least his first three picks in addition to finding some late-round gems.

If early indications prove to be truthful, Tannenbaum may have done just that.

Jets rookies have drawn nothing but praise from their coaches and teammates during OTAs and minicamp, and not just for their play on the field.

Quinton Coples, Stephen Hill and Demario Davis have all shown to be tremendously hard workers and and seem to possess strong leadership qualities in addition to their physical talents. 

The Jets also seem to have found some potentially useful players in the late rounds as well.

Things like preseason performance, learning the playbook and injuries will factor into how much of an impact each of their draft picks will have in 2012, but for now, things are looking good.

This slideshow will project the impact each of the Jets' draft picks will have during the 2012 season using an "impact factor" ranging from 0-10.

It should be noted that the rating is based on potential impact on the season, not the level of play a player is expected to have.
