The Jets’ offensive line has a been an area of increasing concern for some time as a positional group with aging talent and limited depth. The retirement of starting left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson, despite being past his prime, and the placement of nine year vet Breno Giacomini on the PUP list has exacerbated the situation. Clearly keen to add depth to this shaky group and begin to build for the future, the Jets traded back into the fifth round of the draft to pick up South Carolina’s Brandon Shell. Lets take a closer look at the player for whom the Jets gave up their 2017 fourth round pick.

Throughout the pre-season, i’ll be looking at all four QBs to see where they’re all at.
