2020 NFL Mock Draft: Dueling GMs mock sees Redskins make big move
By Ian Cummings
Jacob: The run on offensive tackles continues. And the Jets land the last of the big-four tackle prospects to upgrade their offensive line.
The Jets had a lot of issues on the offensive line last year. They couldn’t block very well for Sam Darnold and Le’Veon Bell and especially struggled to generate push when Kelvin Beachum was out of the lineup.
Now though, Beachum isn’t with the Jets and is still lingering on the free agent market. And the team hasn’t done much to replace him. George Fant was signed to a three-year, $30 million deal to man one tackle position for the Jets — they believe he can play either side — but the other position is less settled. Chuma Edoga, a third-round pick last year, could battle for a job, but it seems more likely that the Jets will settle him on a swing and target a tackle in this loaded class.
Wills is an agile athletic tackle with great movement skills who can probably play either tackle position in the NFL. He played right tackle during his time at Alabama, as Alex Leatherwood manned the left tackle spot, but he has the tools needed to turn into a quality player on the left side of the line.
If the Jets want to go in another direction or the top tackles are off the board at this juncture, Florida cornerback C.J. Henderson makes a lot of sense. He’s a prospect on the rise and could give the team a true No. 1 corner and allow their other complementary pieces in the secondary to better slot into place. But for now, Wills is the more sensible option.
