I'll let you do your own analysis but out of the 34 times a team has had muli picks in the 1st round since 2000 I would say only about 4 times a team has completely failed in both picks and that would be: '01 Rams, '02 Raiders, '03 Bears, and the '05 Vikes. The '01 Rams draft was really bad as I don't think anyone actually starts for any teams.

I was surprised at how many times a team drafted a stud and got a bust with their other pick. Just goes to show you, you never know what you get with theses kids.

Maybe we can get lucky and have another '07 draft.

Wow I forgot that the Jets had 4 1st rounders that year.

. . .yet.
isn't this our first time having both 2 1st rounders and our own 2nd in the same year since 2000?

Pennington was a very good pick for them, especially since he wasn't picked until #18.

Shaun Ellis has been a very solid starter in their 3-4 since he was drafted.

John Abraham turned into a decent DE but not until he left the Jets

Becht was a solid starter for 5 years before he went to Tampa Bay, and being picked at #27 overall that's pretty good value. I'd say the Jets got great value out of 3 of the 4 of their picks in 2000.

The Rams draft was atually a decent one for them


Adam Archuleta was a good safety for them. He left via free agency and is out of the league now but while he was the did a good job. He was bothered by nagging injuries and only played one full 16 game season but that year he notched 116 tackles, 2.5 sacks, 4 PD, and 1 INT.

Ryan Pickett was a very good NT for them and currently starts in GB. He left via free agency after his rookie contract was up.

Damione Lewis never worked out for the Rams but he's starting now in Carolina.

Neither of the Raiders picks worked out.

Shaun Ellis has 10 years with the Jets and 68 lifetime sacks. Pretty hard to say that he hasnt worked out.

Abraham was a very good DE long before he left the Jets. I think the guy hit double digit sacks for 4 or 5 years with them. The only reason they traded him was because they were switching to the 34.
Something that jumps out at me from this list is the three places where teams really transformed themselves by taking two players who will end up working together. I'm talking about:

Ware and Spears
Castillo and Merriman
Ferguson and Mangold

Dallas and SD were both able to make the 3-4 work right away by taking top OLBs and DEs. And the Jets were able to give themselves the kind on line that makes RBs and rookie QBs look good. It seems to me that those three drafts are the ones that had the most positive impact on their team.

Makes me think maybe Bulaga and Iupati isn't such a bad idea....

I wouldn't mind at all. We would have them 2, Statey and Rachel. Thats potentially 4 youg studs on our oline.
Very good info. Should be a great draft.
