    Going into the 2000 NFL draft, the New York Jets had multiple first-round picks and wanted to add some punch to their defensive front. They did so by using one of their top picks on a strong, lightening-fast pass rusher who had the ability to play outside linebacker or defensive end. The Jets used another first-round selection on a sturdy, athletic defensive lineman who was stout against the run yet quick enough to get to the quarterback in passing situations.

    Sound familiar, Chargers fans?</blockquote>
