If you look at Tannenbaum's drafts (2006-2012), only 19 out of the 41 guys he selected are still on the Jets today. That is less than half of the guys! His drafts always lacked depth, having drafts where the Jets would only have two or three picks. THe best example of that is 2009, where the Jets had three picks. They traded a few picks for the chance to trade up and snag Mark Sanchez and Shonn Greene, both of whom have turned out to be not the guys the Jets expected. The Patriots on the other hand, made 67 selections in the draft while Tannenbaum was general manager of the Jets. Teams with more picks, often end up with more depth. Mike Tannenbaum did not value the draft, as he constantly traded away picks to get guys such as Mark Sanchez, Santonio Holmes, and Antonio Cromartie.
john Idzik should go into the draft looking to find starters for this Jets team. This team has lost a good amount of guys and have not added any real starters. If I were Idzik, I would even look to trade back at one point. It dosen't have to be in the first, but it would be a good idea in the middle of the draft. Trading Revis will just make this draft better for Idzik, allowing him to fill more needs for the Jets. Idzik can not follow in Tannenbaum's footsteps and not do the draft right.
