Trevon Wesco steadily improved as a blocker throughout 2019
I’d be interested to see Wesco’s numbers vs. the other Jets Yes last season.
I also think that there is a major aspect of our 2020 offense that people are overlooking. I expect to see our run/pass split tilt heavily in the run direction compared to last year. There may still be a few questions about thew pass blocking skills of some of the new O line, but there is no question about their run blocking potential. We’ve got Bell and now Perine, and I’d bring back Bilal for one more rodeo. The best protection for Sam is that the D will always have to be ready to defend the run against us.
With that being the case, Wesco may wind up becoming a better option more often.
I also think our defense is going to be top 5 and I’m no longer worried our punter is going to shank one when we can least afford it. Running the ball down people’s throats and grinding the clock sounds good to me.
