Rewind: A look back at the 187th pick


The Jets own 10 picks in the upcoming draft, including four compensatory selections. We're reviewing the recent draft history for each slot. A rundown of the Jets' selections:

Round 1 -- 16th overall

Round 2 -- 47th

Round 3 -- 77th

Round 5 -- 154th

Round 6 -- 187th, 202nd (comp), 203rd (comp)

Round 7 -- 232nd, 242nd (comp), 244th (comp)

The 187th pick: The Last 5 Years

2011: Allen Bradford, RB, Bucs

2010: Shelly Smith, G, Texans

2009: Brandon Underwood, DB, Packers

2008: John Sullivan, C, Vikings

2007: Thomas Clayton, RB, 49ers

Analysis: We know who wins the prize here; it's the Vikings, who drafted Sullivan out of Notre Dame. Sullivan has been a three-year starter, a tremendous value for a sixth-round choice. Underwood and Clayton didn't play in the league last season, Smith didn't play for the Texans and Bradford changed teams, landing with the Seahawks. Overall, slim pickings.
