jetstream23 Posted December 30, 2020 Share Posted December 30, 2020 The Jets poured lots of resources (Draft capital, FA $$) into the Line last offseason, committing money to McGovern, Fant, GVR, Josh Andrews, etc. and a #11 pick on Becton, a 4th round pick on Cam Clark. Yet, it still feels like there's significant work to do. The 2020 starters were Becton, Lewis, McGovern, GVR, Fant. What would be your realistic upgrades for 2021? How many new starters do you want and how much are you willing to commit both in terms of $$ and Draft capital? A case could be made that the Jets could upgrade 3 positions with two huge moves in an effort to instantly turn the OLine into the strength of the team in 2021. Signing an OG like Thuney from the Patriots and using the #2 pick on Penei Sewell could, on paper, give the Jets one of the most dominant lines in the league. Sewell - Thuney - McGovern - Lewis - Becton I'm not sure how great of a fit Lewis is at RG but Pat Elflein and GVR are also candidates for that spot. As it stands today I have no hope that guys like Chuma Edoga or Cam Clark are going to earn starting spots in 2021. But those would be the two home run moves (Thuney, Sewell) that IMO upgrade 3 spots to potential Pro Bowl caliber (by moving Becton to RT) but again, it would be costly. Other options would include signing Thuney, keeping Becton at LT and using that later 1st round or 2nd round pick on a guy like Sam Cosmi or Alex Leatherwood. Creed Humphrey could also be an option. So for 2021, go big and try to make the line elite.....or make some more incremental improvements at one or two spots and keeping guys like Fant and Lewis in place? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
