Scott Mason with the ultimate New York Jets NFL Draft quiz…
It is NFL draft season, and at this point, you have probably read more about the top prospects in this year’s annual selection process than anybody who doesn’t get paid to analyze players should. I’m certainly guilty of this myself.
Current Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan made his bones as a scout and has insisted repeatedly that the Jets’ fortunes will have to be turned around primarily through the draft. With that being the case, I figured it could be instructive to take a look back in history and see just how well the Jets have fared in that area over the years.

Ryan Marcone on five second round targets for the New York Jets in the 2017 NFL Draft
For many fans, few things sum up the ineptitude of the modern era and serve as a metaphor for the dysfunction of the organization as a whole better than the recent curse of second round draft picks going bust. Since 2001, the dubious honor has gone to the likes of Mike Nugent, Kellen Clemens, Vlad Ducasse, Stephen Hill, and most recently Devin Smith and Christian Hackenberg.
Considering the rule of thumb that players taken in the first four rounds should eventually be developed into starters, and players taken in rounds one and two should be significant contributors from their rookie year, this is a major problem. It’s gotten to the point where fans are unsure if the Jets just pick bad players in Round 2, or if players become bad because the Jets picked them in Round 2. But luckily for the Jets, this year’s draft class is exceptionally deep, so there are several players who may be on the board that can end the losing streak. Here are my choices for Pick 39.

Scott Mason on the New York Jets approach to the NFL Draft in 2017…
Regardless of what the Jets do in free agency, it is crucial they hit on a high percentage of their draft picks, because that is what all of the best teams do. The Steelers, Seahawks, Packers, Ravens, and Patriots are all examples of perennial contenders who make the occasional free agent splash but understand that there four days in April that make or break the long-term health of a franchise.
