Look for These Four Players to Enter the Conversation at 11 for Jets

Recommended Posts

Becton.jpg

As any NFL fan is well aware, once the college bowl season comes to a close and the offseason pre-draft process begins, prospects will rise and fall based on All-Star games, pro days, combines, medicals and player interviews.  At the moment, it seems the players most are projecting to the Jets are the top three left tackles (Andrew Thomas of Georgia, Jedrick Wills of Alabama and Tristan Wirfs from Iowa) or one of the top two wide receivers (Jerry Jeudy of Alabama and Cee Dee Lamb of Oklahoma).

The Jets would likely grab any of those five players with the 11th pick, but it’s not out of the question that they’ll all be gone when the Jets are on the clock.  If so, the Jets will have to consider another option.  Here are four players who could find themselves climbing draft boards and going to the Jets with a strong pre-draft showing.

OT Mekhi Becton, Louisville:

A behemoth at left tackle, Becton checks in at 6′ 7” 370 lbs and on film looks to move like a much smaller man.  Given the value of the position and the run we’ve seen on left tackles in recent years, expect Becton to enter the conversation as an early to mid first round pick.  If the Jets are truly putting Sam Darnold’s safety first, Becton could get the call.

OLB K’Lavon Chaisson, LSU:

Chaisson looks to be projected after the Jets pick at 11 in every mock we’ve seen up to this point.  Given their need for a true edge rusher, the explosive Chaisson should be an option.  He flashes an impressive spin move to go with his explosiveness terrific motor.  Jets fans don’t want to see defense in round one, but if all of the top O-line prospects are gone, Joe Douglas may go in another direction.

WR Heny Ruggs, Alabama:

While Jerry Jeudy is getting most of the attention at this point, Ruggs might be the best deep threat in this class but can also run an assortment of routes.  Said to be a legitimate 4.2 speedster, Ruggs could fit in nicely as the Jets look to add some weapons to the NFL’s worst offense.

EDGE Yetur Gross-Matos:

Another option off the edge on defense, Gross-Matos has the tools to be a disruptive force off the edge.  His long limbs give him the opportunity to make plays as a pass rusher than most could only dream of.  Currently projected in the low to mid 20’s, moving up a few spots to the Jets shouldn’t be ruled out.

the AThletic has Jets taking Mehki Becton w/ CDLamb still on the board...

11. New York Jets — Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
Sitting just outside the top 10, the Jets will be sweating in the war room if their target is an offensive tackle. The fourth tackle off the board in this scenario, Becton has some sloppy tendencies, but at 6-foot-7 and 365 pounds, he moves like a much lighter blocker and looks to impose his will in the run game, moving and burying defenders into the ground.

Dudes a freakish specimen but you can’t take him with Ceedee Lamb on the board.

I don't believe any 370 pound player goes in Rd 1 of the NFL draft 

size/speed ratio is a concern and he would be asked to pass block players like Brandon Graham 

Even Jon Ogden was 6'9" 345

there's a reason why the league doesn't employ Sumo wrestlers

perhaps this guy shows up at the combine and truly is a world class rare athlete at 370 

more likely he needs to lose weight and goes rd 2-3 

***

 

at this point in the process if it all falls worst case I'd take Ruggs to replace/upgrade on Robby and call it a day 

 

Mount Cody!

Edge is want, not a need. 

Needs are OT x2, OG x2, C, WR x2, RB.

Following filling every one of those positions, then the team should look at CB and edge.

if the jets are deciding between becton and a wr, i think they trade back.  they can get a quality OT later in the first round and get more day 2 picks.

I really don’t think we have to use our #11 on desperation. There’s a lot of OL available in FA, and we could certainly put together a better unit to last 3 years that way. Use the #11 on a weapon. Veteran OL give you better ROI as FA than most positions. Then we have a couple years to set up the replacements.

Ruggs ran a 4.25 last year junior pro day 

don't see a huge difference in value between Jeudy Lamb and Ruggs (assuming they all work out well)

 also don't see a huge difference in value between the 3 OT (Wirfs, Wills and Thomas - again assuming workouts)

out of those 6 players (WR1, WR2, WR3, OT1, OT2 and OT3),  1 of them should be there at 11

the problem comes when people try to mock OT 4, CB 2 or ER 2 at 11. 

CB and ER are also bad needs but the value doesn't line up at 11 for either spot

The best player out of the 4 that I would want is Gross-Matos.   Becton doesn't deserve to be picked in the top 12.  There are a ton of wide outs to spend at 11.  And Chaisson is a nice player but not at 11.  OT will be decided at the combine. My best 3 left OT that I liked in fact went back to finish their senior year.   Even Thomas I need to see at the combine but he is athletic and probably look great. He has great hands and feet but seems to avoid contact. Was that later in the year he was concerned about getting hurt. Maybe. After the combine he will probably be the first  Left OT.  Wirfs is the player I would draft and I see him going past the top 10.

There's too many quality WR to take one at 11 even moreso than last year. I would rather trade back if the thinking is to take a WR there.

Jerry Jeudy is the most polished route runner to come out of the draft in years. I don’t very much care to overhype 40 times though they have their usefulness.

The way I look at it is the first ten will be   1. Joe Burrow

                                                                    2. Chase  Young

                                                                    3.  Derrick Brown 

                                                                    4.  Jeffrey Okudah 

                                                                    5.  Grant Delpit

                                                                    6.  Justin Herbert

                                                                    7.  Jerry Jeudy

                                                                    8. Dee Dee  Lamb

                                                                    9. A.J. Epenesa

                                                                 10 .  Andrew Thomas

Now if Tua takes one of these last two spots that means that Epenesa  or even Thomas could drop to you. Now that depends what Thomas does in the Combine. But he is athletic and I see him not dropping.  He is not a guarantee OT. 

                     So we have one of these players if Tua is in top 10 and Wirfs and Shenault.  So we should get an excellent player. My choice is Wirfs and secure that Right Tackle position.

Also will depend what we do in FA come March.

If we shore up the OL changes the draft for us

Then a K’Lavon Chaisson works

at this point Jeudy is higher than Ruggs on every board. Most assume he goes top 10. The Jets don't pick in the top 10.

Ruggs seems like a perfect fit for what they are about to lose in Robby Anderson.

One out of the top 10, not 7 or more.

Agreed on Ruggs/Robby comp. 

Would be nice if Ruggs would fall in the draft a bit, but if we take a WR @ 11 no reason to take another until maybe a bit later? (4th/5th) or truthfully maybe no more at all depending how FA shakes out.

You don't need to pick Ruggs at 11 when this is a good wide receiver draft. You could get real good wr in the 2nd round. My choice is a RT who was coached by a offensive line head coach. Wirfs would fill a huge hole and the Jets have both OT who are free agents.

prediction the Jets wont sign Robby and won't sign anyone big to make sure they get the 3rd RD comp pick in 2021 for Robby. they will not get any "sure fire" FA this offseason a bunch of bargain basement types

again... just a prediction

its good that it's such a good WR year because the Jets might need to draft multiple receivers this year. 

The Current Jets WR Depth Chart: 

WR 1 Crowder

WR 2 Vyncint Smith

WR 3 Braxton Berrios

Quincey Enunwa a coin flip to retire

who else?
