Jets haven't drafted a Pro Bowl skill-player since 1996
If the Jets take a skill-player during the NFL Draft, there's a good chance that guy won't end up ever making it to the Pro Bowl.
If you're wondering why Jets fans boo pretty much every pick at Radio City Music Hall during the NFL Draft, it's probably because they're getting a little frustrated at their own picks.
For instance, did you know that Jets haven't drafted a Pro Bowl skill-player since 1996? That's 18 years if you don't feel like doing the math.
New York has drafted skill-players that eventually made the Pro Bowl for another team -- like Santana Moss -- but that doesn't really do the Jets much good.
Anyway, if the Jets take a receiver, running back or quarterback during the draft, expect their fans to boo loudly because everyone knows that player isn't going to the Pro Bowl.
Here's a list of the skill-players the Jets have drafted since they took their last Pro Bowler -- Keyshawn Johnson -- in 1996.
