" No NFL team uses more draft picks on quarterbacks than the New York Jets " ~ ~ ~


Recommended Posts

Much has been made about the number of quarterbacks the Cleveland Browns have used in recent years, but when it comes to the NFL Draft, no team has taken more shots than the New York Jets over the last 16 years.

From 1999 through 2015, the Jets drafted ten quarterbacks, two more than the Browns during the same period. At the other end, the Dallas Cowboys have drafted just three quarterbacks since 1999.

On the other hand, the Browns have drafted four quarterbacks in the first round of the last 16 drafts, more than any other team and something they are expected to do again this year. Meanwhile, five teams have not selected a quarterback in the first round during this time period, including the Cowboys, Chiefs, Saints, Seahawks, and Patriots.

Most were throw aways at the time....whatevs

the trade up for Sanchez was an incredible move at the time- the opposite of the rg3 trade, loved the value - didn't work out but was fun for a bit

Yup. I still think the Sanchez move was great and would love us to pull something like that off again, actually rated him as a prospect too but he just wasn't good enough.

Ultimately we've made only two serious moves at getting a franchise QB in the draft. Both showed glimpses but didn't fulfil their promise for different reasons. Pennington was pretty unfortunate.

In the 1965 draft when we got Namath the 2nd rd pick was a QB in all they took 4 QB's that year in the first 7 picks..:)

And traded both a first and a second for Sanchez. 

Imagine if it only cost us the equivalent of that trade to move up with the Browns again?  Oh happy day that would be.  The trade itself was an absolute steal, the player selected didn't work out, but Mangini really ****ed that value up bad by over valuing some of his former players, I wish H Jackson did the same this season, likes Smith, and 2 other back ups on the Jets roster.

Can we still trade them Kenyon Coleman and Brett Ratliff? 

Agree on the trade value. And it also was correct in valuing a potential franchise QB over not just the draft picks but also a pretty good starting end and a decent young safety with upside (and Ratliff lol). Like you say, it sucks it didn't work out but the trade value was unmistakable. 

It does illustrate the downside, though, of a swing and miss of that caliber investment. Jason brought it up in a great post of his on jetscap a couple weeks ago. You end up with [New Draftee or New Big Money QB] or bust, and if he doesn't work out the rest of your plans are not only meaningless but takes multiple seasons to recover. 

*sigh* oh, well. Swinging and missing is better than not swinging & going down looking, I suppose.

Very surprised by this chart.  Would never have guessed.  

It's deceiving.  As per "Ohio State NY Jets Fan" we took 2 #1s and 2 #2's.  Unless you take a QB in the 1st 2 rounds (possibly 3 but I'd say 2) it's a real reach.  In fact, taking a 2nd round QB is probably a pretty low percentage too because prospects tend to get picked higher even if they're overrated.  It's just the importance of the position

16 years? WTF is that? Why not 3 or 7 or 13 or whatever the hell fits your stupid argument. B.S. argument for a B.S. article.

Still don't care, draft all the quarterbacks!!!! Throw enough sh*t against a wall some  eventually sticks. 

I honestly like when teams go this route (within reason, of course). I mean, I honestly wouldn't be mad if the Jets drafted a high round, mid round, and late round QB. 

How I see it is that the worst that can happen is you'll have some decent backups that you can trade if need be.

Who else will you have?

This is why scouting and player development are so crucua. The Jets fired the one guy who was half way decent at scouting and player development because he was boring and all that stuff, and the fans did not want to have a beer with him. Then held on to the dope who was awful at scouting and player development forever, cause he'd be so fun to tailgate with and all that stuff.

New England has drafted one fewer than the Jets. BB is a genius.

not really.  It's the same number because for some reason the chart is counting Brad Smith as a drafted QB.  He was drafted to be a WR.

It would be nice if when you copy and paste you include the writers name.
