Yes, Stafford was the correct pick. If anything he has displayed some nice toughness.
As far as quarterbacks go, they made the right choice with Stafford. However, I believe that it is better to build a football team from the lines outward, so I think that drafting a Michael Oher or a good defensive player might have been the right choice. By the time that Stafford would be reaching his prime, there is the possibility that he will have lost a lot of confidence from a couple of years playing with a mediocre line and defense.
The Jets team seemed close enough to being complete that a quarterback in the first round made more sense. At the beginning of the season they were projected to have a great defense, great offensive line, and pretty good receivers and runningbacks.
