1996: KEYSHAWN JOHNSON, Wide receiver, USC
Drafted: First round, No. 1 overall
Only the second overall No. 1 pick the Jets have ever had (Joe Namath in 1965 was the first), Johnson lasted just four seasons in New York. But when Jet quarterbacks threw the flashy receiver the "damn ball," Johnson delivered. He made the Pro Bowl in 1998 and 1999, when he had at least eight touchdowns and 1,100 receiving yards in each of those seasons. He was traded to Tampa Bay for a pair of first-round picks.
