It was an awful season, but Jets fans can turn the page and look ahead to the draft and 2013. The Jets own the ninth pick, their first top-10 pick since 2008 (Vernon Gholston). In 2009, they began with the 17th pick, but traded up to fifth (Mark Sanchez).
Here's the top 10, from ESPN Stats & Information:
1. Chiefs, 2-14
2. Jaguars, 2-14
3. Raiders, 4-12
4. Eagles, 4-12
5. Lions, 4-12
6. Browns, 5-11
7. Cardinals, 5-10
8. Bills, 6-10
9. Jets, 6-10
10. Titans, 6-10
Note: The Titans had the same strength-of-schedule as the Jets, but they get the 10th spot based on their head-to-head win over them.
