The Jets own seven selections in the upcoming draft. Here's a look back at the recent history with each slot, focusing on the sixth round:

The Picks:

Round 1 -- 9th overall

Round 2 -- 39th overall

Round 3 -- 72nd overall

Round 4 -- 106th overall

Round 5 -- 141st overall

Round 6 -- 178th overall

Round 7 -- 215th overall

The last three drafts, the 178th pick:

2012: Mark Asper, G, Bills (Oregon)

2011: Aldrick Robinson, WR, Redskins (SMU)

2010: Arthur Moats, LB, Bills (James Madison)

Analysis: There was one phenomenal pick in the sixth round of last year's draft. Obviously, we're not talking about Asper. It was RB Alfred Morris, chosen 173rd overall by the Redskins. He rushed for 1,613 yards as a rookie. Asper? He's already on his third team. The point is, sometimes you get lucky; most times you don't. In 2010, the Bills found a solid backup in Moats, who has five career sacks. He's best known for delivering the blow in 2010 that ended Brett Favre's consecutive games streak at 297. Moats also has an interesting tattoo on his back: "Don't cross the Moats." You can't make this stuff up.
