No. 25-11

25. Ken O’Brien, QB #7
24. Greg Buttle, LB #51
23. Shaun Ellis, DL #92
22. Aaron Glenn, CB #31
21. Mickey Shuler, TE #82
20. Marty Lyons, DT #93
19. Emerson Boozer, RB #32
18. Marvin Powell, T #79
17. Mo Lewis, OLB #57
16. Kevin Mawae, C #68
15. Nick Mangold, C #74
14. Al Toon, WR #88
13. Matt Snell, FB #41
12. Winston Hill, T #75
11. Larry Grantham, LB #60

The only other quarterback who can even think about coming close to sniffing the legacy of Namath is Ken O’Brien.

Although he was taken before a guy named Dan Marino, O’Brien finished his Jets career as a two-time Pro Bowler and only trailing Joe Namath as the leading passer in franchise history. Some of those offenses with Al Toon and Wesley Walker were dynamite.

Before Greg Buttle was heard on the radio waving those pom-poms for Gang Green, he was a vicious middle linebacker for the squad.

Linebacker Larry Grantham, stalwart tackle Winston Hill, and fullback Matt Snell were the toughest snubs from the top 10.
