If Sewell is the pick who will play LT?


Recommended Posts

Most people would say immediately to move Becton to the right, but wouldnt that break the continuity he built in his rookie year? Mekhi was dominant all year at LT, I would not mess around by moving Mekhi. But if you keep Becon at LT would that upset Sewell? Afterall, right tackles dont make anywhere near enough as left tackles and having a young Becton on the left would condemn Sewell to a life sentence at RT, would Sewell be OK with that?

Didnt bechton give up 7 sacks and commit 7 penalties? Isnt he ranked in the top 10 tackles by nobody?   Why do people keep saying he was dominant or elite. He had a promising rookie season d

It's either gonna be a QB or a trade. He's not taking a LT a year after taking a really good LT at #11. The team has too many holes to use his most valuable asset -that #2 pick- on one of the few posi

I wouldn't. I would keep Becton right where he is and put Sewell at RT.....

Leave Becton at LT let Sewell dominate at RT.  We can deal with the problem of Sewell asking for a position change 4 years from now after he’s made several pro bowls

 

and “solving the problem” = paying him

He’s started 18 collegiate games, but let’s get the yellow jacket fitted already.

There are some terrific RT prospects available who will be excellent value from pick 23 onwards, and more importantly some very good interior OL options too

it’s not happening, and rightly so....there are any number of reasons why, the above being just one of them

kind of a false narrative. becton was pretty darn good as a run blocker, but not so much as a pass blocker.....giving up something like 7 sacks and more pressures.

in almost 1,000 snaps he gave up zero sacks. and o-line is one of the more reliable positions to evaluate for the tranasition to the nfl from college

Having TWO players capable of playing LT and dominating is a GOOD problem to have....

That alone is potentially very misleading, His QB was Justin Herbert, who we now know was a pretty special talent and great QB’s get the hall out quickly. 

it’s not that Sewell isn’t going to be a very good player, although he’s being somewhat overrated, but that he plays a position we no longer need.

Should we draft Wilson or Fields at 2 and then maybe double-down on Mac Jones at 23 on the basis that having TWO players capable of playing QB and dominating is a good problem to have?

or perhaps we could draft a WR or Edge because having ONE player capable of playing there would also be a nice problem to have

1,000 snaps without giving up even ONE sack is misleading because justin herbert is a good qb? lol ok. anyway we could put becton where he would be MUCH better ....at RT

Sure but having no WR's, TE's, CB, Pass Rushers and QB IS a pretty big problem to have.

No one is saying having Sewell wouldn't be great but there are far more pressing needs on this team.

our o-line is trash and we saw how that works, even for an offense of the chief's caliber. it's by far the most consequential problem for our offense and MUST be addressed. thankfully JD is quoted as saying that he believes in, first and foremost, a strong line on both sides of the ball

Of course it needs to be addressed and should be addressed aggressively.  But doesn't need to be and nor should it be at #2.

Now, I'm not so sure JD truly cares about OL as much as he claimed, just look at what he put on the field last year.  That was HIS OL not Mac's.  He chose to sign other team's back-ups.  We'll see this off-season what he does.

it's going to be an interesting and extremely important off-season for sure.

Yes because tackles picked 2nd overall are always HOF locks.

Nonsense. You go where the talent is. If Sewell is there at 2 and You feel like he's the best player, you take him. It's that simple. And the idea of selecting Sewell is admitting Becton sucks is SILLY.

You play those two animals as book ends and watch every NFL GM applaud Joe Douglas and his brilliance.

And HOW exactly do you know that Fields and Jones are going to be excellent players? That's complete nonsense. QB's are complete crapshoots. Sewell is the surest slated top 5 pick in this draft. He's considered to be a plug and play LT. You can't day the same for any of the QB's besides maybe Lawrence.

Trash,IMO is too strong of a word. To be sure they didn’t improve as much as expected but there were a few mitigating factors no. 1 being the lockdown training camps, and no. 2 injuries kept the starting line up from being in the same game at the same time.  To be sure there are places they can upgrade but if these same guys had a real training camp and all stayed on the field they’d look much better.

We have too many needs, we should trade down if we can find a trading partner.  I doubt Sewell will be there at 4, he definitely will not be there at eight. Rashawn Slater is value and need at 8 if we find a trade down partner.

As a fail safe in case we can't find a traded down partner, Sewell does need to be asked if he will play RT in his rookie contract. I don't think Becton stays healthy but if he does, and Sewell will agree to play RT in his rookie contract, then failing a trade down take Sewell.

Towards the end of either Becton's or Sewell's rookie contract trade one of them. LT tackles are a valuable trade piece; we are all aware of the advantage being that you reset back to a rookie pay scale on one of those contracts instead of paying both tackles and taking up a giant slice of your salary cap.

This is so wrong. Just plain silly.

There are two tackle positions.  If you want to argue that they Jets would be putting too much resources into the tackle position, fine.  But what you said makes no sense.
