Anyone who is hating on that pick is hating it for the sake of hating it.

For all the posters that think I only crap on our draft picks, I love this one. Excellent value and I see a LT at the next level.

Not a left tackle.  More of a Right Tackle which he has played two years.

I think half (or more?) of this board hates everything the jets do anyway, regardless of merit. Edoga is fine. He was one of the half dozen OL prospects I was hoping for. The Sam tie in is a nice bonus.

Is it realistic for a college RT to play LT in the NFL? Like the pick but my guess is he's RT. We've got some road graders now.

Didnt he play both LT & RT in college?

Guys that have 3406" long arms can play LT. There's a reason why the Senior Bowl moved him to LT.

His arm length is definitely not typical of a guy his height.  People look at his height and dismiss him, but he’s got a huge wingspan.

Agreed. Sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

RT in college.  LT in Senior Bowl.

Edogas arms are as long as Shells. 34 3/4".  Crazy.

Analysts said he has trouble focusing.... questionable passion for game

How on earth can one have trouble focusing when there’s a 300 pound guy inches from your face trying to knock your head off on each play? Jetsy Jetsy Jetsy.

Wait? We just read 100 post on how Mac ignored the o line and how many o lineman we could have had and now we love this kid? OMG.

I think he was drafted a little high....probably could have had him with our pick at top of 4.  That said, perhaps we should wait until he suits up to call him a bust....wink wink half the board!

 

The usual suspects. The snark patrol. Assume the worst, and if that doesn't work, call it the worst and stir the pot. It's tiresome.

He looked awfully good at the Senior Bowl. I didn't watch a lot of USC this year, but he plays a premium position that is in flux after this year. He has a chance to be an important player for us.

Very intriguing pick.  More experience at RT, but seems to have an LT's skillset (accomplished pass-blocker, good foot quickness, long arms).

Jawaan Taylor played RT in college too, but people were projecting him as a possible LT in the pros.

Edoga probably starts out as the swing-tackle, but he could be an option at LT in the future with some development.

He’s a guy who can play multiple positions and eventually develop into a starter.  Nice pick.  I’m wondering if Gase made all the picks in the draft

I think he replaces Shell for a year since this is Shells last year under contract. Next year he moves to LT. Guy was an absolute beast in the SB this year and he played strictly LT.


I’m not so sure having Shell walk is a good idea. Obviously his injury is a concern but he’s been solid for a 5th rounder.

I wouldn't mind keeping him as a swing tackle, I just don't want to see him in the starting lineup because he's a jag at best.

Edoga has the ability and measurables to play left tackle and he has played that position in college. Tyron Smith is an example of only playing right tackle at USC and a left tackle in the NFL.

highest drafted olineman by mac so far.  we'll see how good this guy is or will be.  he at least came from a big time program and doesn't have any major injury history.

I’m excited to have Edoga on the team. I really liked him at the Senior Bowl because he outright stood out in drills. A lot of power and finesse to play with there.

I was thinking the same. However, I believe someone mentioned the Cowboys T Smith also played RT at USC.

This is the first time in a long time that the Jets have had legitimate tackle depth.

True for Edoga but really four of the six draftees have a legitimate opportunity if healthy to compete for starting positions against incumbents who didn’t necessarily “need” to be replaced in the draft. Speaks to how thin the roster is.

Really?! Wow, I’m surprised that he stated that publicly. They’re obviously high on him to say they see him at LT. I assumed right. But if he can win LT next year and Shell recovers well and is back at RT next year, that definitely would be a relief.

Really liking the Edoga pick. Like that we took a couple of ‘risky’ prospects with elite upside. Also really like the two OT that we picked up as UDFA. Tyler Jones could stick and Wyatt Miller has a chance too.

Yeah, that plus trading up one spot for him tells you they think highly of him.

You know he got that Sam endorsement, no doubt

He's breathing and is an olineman so I am elated we picked him.

Yeah I just assumed it was for RT. Also, by not saying anything publicly at this point, takes the pressure off. If Chuma isn’t fit for LT, then they could have said well it was our plan all along for him to be RT.

But, to come out and say it already, definitely shows confidence. Or Mac playing the media game and putting the pressure on the coaching staff. “Hey we drafted him to be our left tackle. He had the highest pass protection rate out of everyone in college. If he can’t make it, don’t look at me.”

Shell not a jag, Harrison's non drafted arse is the jag.
