NFL Draft 2006 – Round 1 #29 – New York Jets – C Nick Mangold

The Jets are on the clock with the second pick of the draft. Could they grab LenDale White?

Nope: They took OSU center Nick Mangold.

Rick Gosselin had him projected going to the Bears at #25, giving him high praise: “[O]ne of the safest picks in this draft. The only knock on him is his position. Centers don’t generally go high in drafts. He’s been described as a Mark Stepnoski with a bit more size.” Fans of football, especially the Dallas Cowboys, in the 1990s need hear no more. Stepnoski was a perennial Pro Bowler.
