29. Nick Mangold, Jets, 2006
What were the Jets doing drafting this late in the First Round? Well, they had the fourth overall pick that year based on merit but traded John Abraham to get a second pick later in the First Round. But seriously, the Jets hit the goldmine when they took Mangold 29th overall in 2006.
Mangold anchored the New York offensive line for a full decade. He started all 16 games as a rookie, made his first of seven Pro Bowls in his third season, and rarely missed a game over the next decade. To this day, any NFL team would love to clone Mangold and make him their center for 10 years. The Jets did great with this pick and the trade that gave it to them.
