As football fans count down the hours to the 2011 NFL Draft, I thought I'd present you with my favorite pre-draft stocking stuffer: the video of the New York Jets numerous draft blunders over the years. While the Jets have regained some level of respectability under Rex Ryan (at least ON the field), this video provides a look at some truly classic moments in NFL Draft history.
I think my favorite part of this is that then NFL Commissioner Pete Rozelle seems to know Jets fans are going to hate some of these picks and so he purposefully pauses on some of the words. For example, in 1987 he says, "New York Jets first round selection...Fullback...." and that is followed by a fan screaming "Ohhhhh Noooo!" I think Rozelle knew exactly what he was doing because as the Jets fan screams out his "Oh No" there is just the slightest hint of a smile/smirk on Rozelle's face.
Let's hope for some classic draft shenanigans over the next couple of days.
