With few quality quarterbacks available in the 2009 NFL Draft, Mark Sanchez decided to seize the moment and submit his name into the pool of eligible talent. In dire need of getting a franchise QB, the Jets had their eye on Sanchez and decided to make a huge push for him, even if it meant trading away nearly everything they had at the time.

In addition to their own players, Kenyon Coleman, Abram Elam and Brett Ratliff, Gang Green traded away their first and second round selections to the Browns, just to move up to the fifth spot to select Sanchez. It was a bold move on the Jets' part and one that the Jets regret immensely till this day.
