2020 NFL Draft offensive line rankings: Jedrick Wills at No. 1 in second-best position group in the class

The wide receiver class is the best position group in the 2020 NFL Draft, but the offensive line class -- especially offensive tackle -- isn't very far behind. Seriously. 

Like the wideouts, the collection of offensive linemen features a few high-caliber prospects like Jedrick Wills, Tristan Wirfs, Andrew Thomas, Mekhi Becton, and Josh Jones, and then there is loads of quality depth likely to be available on Day 2.  

The prospect rankings below are based on the CBS Sports composite rankings. Each prospect is listed with his overall rating, which roughly translates as follows: 90s are for players considered Round 1 locks, 80s should go in the first three rounds, 70s are expected to be drafted and 60s are on the draft bubble.

Tier 1

1. Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama
Rating: 93

2. Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia
Rating: 93

3. Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa
Rating: 91

4. Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville
Rating: 90

5. Josh Jones, OT, Houston
Rating: 88

Tier 2

6. Isaiah Wilson, OT, Georgia
Rating: 86

7. Austin Jackson, OT, USC
Rating: 86

8. Tyler Biadasz, IOL, Wisconsin
Rating: 85 

9. Prince Tega Wanogho, OT, Auburn
Rating: 85

10. Lloyd Cushenberry, IOL, LSU
Rating: 84

Tier 3

11. Lucas Niang, OT, TCU
Rating: 83

12. Trey Adams, OT, Washington
Rating: 83

13. Jack Driscoll, OT/IOL, Auburn
Rating: 83

14. Netane Muti, G, Fresno State

15. Cesar Ruiz, IOL, Michigan

We need to come out of this draft with a minimum of 2 and maybe 3 olineman and at least 2 wrs.

(Of course we need a pass rusher, at least one CB, a RB as well.)

yep, although i'd qualify it a bit a say 2 of those olinemen will need to start or at least one of those guys will start from game 1 and the other will start during the season.  same thing with the wr's but i think the jets might be better served to sign a receiver in free agency and then draft a guy who may be able to start during the season.  one thing i haven't heard discussed is how much of the cap will they be able to carry over to next season? it may be a moot point with the new cba coming up.
