The New York Jets acquired an impressive haul during the 2022 NFL Draft.
In the first round alone, they got cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner, wide receiver Garrett Wilson, and defensive end Jermaine Johnson II.
A round later, they were able to get running back Breece Hall.
That draft class could help turn things around for the one-time Super Bowl champions.
But until it happens, they will have to carry an infamous record.

The FOX Sports: NFL Twitter account pointed out the teams with the longest postseason droughts with the caption, “Which teams will end their playoff drought this season?”
The Jets lead the list at 11 seasons while the Denver Broncos are second with six.
Tied at five seasons are the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, and New York Giants.
The Jets last entered the postseason in 2010 when Rex Ryan was still the head coach.
He was able to lead the squad to a second consecutive AFC Championship Game but lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers, 24-19.
A Disappointing Ride For The Jets
Since then, they only had one winning season and hired four coaches in a decade.
Their only winning mark came in 2015 when they went 10-6.
During that stretch, they also had two 8-8 finishes, one in 2011 and the other in 2013.
After Ryan, they hired Todd Bowles who lasted for four seasons.
Adam Gase followed him and was the head coach for only two seasons.
Robert Saleh is in his second year and he might not last long if the Jets continue to struggle.
The Jets will open the 2022 NFL season against the Baltimore Ravens on September 11.
After which, they will run the table with AFC North teams over the next three weeks (Cleveland Browns, Cincinnati Bengals, Pittsburgh Steelers in that order).
