Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select OL Cameron Clark

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting OL Cameron Clark in the 4th round of the NFL Draft

The New York Jets continued to build their offensive line in the 2020 NFL Draft by selecting offensive tackle Cameron Clark from Charlotte with the 129th overall pick. Clark is likely to slide inside to guard, where we could potentially compete for playing time as a rookie at one of the Jets overall weaker positions.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select WR Denzel Mims

The New York Jets traded back 11 spots in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft and acquired an extra third round pick, yet still found a way to grab Baylor WR Denzel Mims with their pick, a player who fell a bit further than most expected. Joe Douglas has had an early concentration on offense, starting with tackle Mekhi Becton and following up with Mims, addressing two major needs and helping Sam Darnold in the process.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Select OT Mekhi Becton

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets selecting Louisville OT Mekhi Becton

The New York Jets got their offensive tackle with the 11th overall pick in the NFL Draft, landing the player we most commonly mocked to them in Mekhi Becton, from Louisville. It was somewhat surprising the Jets went Becton with Tristan Wirfs on the board but Becton has the most upside of any tackle in this class and has a freakish combination of size and athleticism.
