Rewind: A look back at the 77th 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 77th pick: The Last 5 Years

2011: Jurrell Casey, DL, Titans

2010: Damian Williams, WR, Titans

2009: Antoine Caldwell, G, Texans

2008: Pat Sims, DT, Bengals

2007: Matt Spaeth, TE, Steelers

Analysis: The third round is a place where teams should find starting-caliber players, but this group doesn't exactly inspire hopes of grandeur. There are no true busts here, but we're not talking about any full-time starters, either. Sims and Spaeth have been contributors for the Bengals and Steelers, respectively; Williams shows signs of promise with 61 receptions in two seasons. But no one here belongs in a Pro Bowl conversation, that's for sure. You'd like to think the Jets could do better with this pick.
