Jets get best compensatory pick

The Jets received the highest compensatory pick in the 2006 NFL draft.

Based on the formula that rewards teams for free agents lost the previous year, the Jets were given a pick at the end of the third round, 97th overall.

Last spring the Jets lost Anthony Becht, Jason Ferguson, LaMont Jordan and Kareem McKenzie as free agents, and based on the NFL's formula, this led to them getting this additional pick. No other team got a third round pick this year.
