He’s slated to serve as the New York Jets left tackle, but don’t be surprised if he starts as the sixth offensive lineman, instead.

Wide receiver, wide receiver, wide receiver. Even if Joe Douglas hadn’t acquired four new offensive linemen in free agency, the wide receiver calls at No. 11 in the 2020 NFL Draft would have been rabid.

It’s simply the nature of the game. The flash, the dazzle a wide receiver brings to the table always wins out. Fans, media pundits and everybody on the outside just cannot help themselves. The SportsCenter, highlight-reel possibilities of a Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb are too much to ignore.

Not for Joe Douglas.

The former offensive lineman continues to bang the infrastructure drum, and it’s entirely possible he could go with another offensive lineman at No. 11, which could hurt one of the new guy’s starting chances.

Go ahead and pencil George Fant in as the left tackle, but don’t be surprised if he’s not starting once the smoke settles.

Contract structured on Fant becoming a starter, certainly a projection. Jets putting a lot on Offensive Line Coach Frank Pollack, JD is giving him the players he wants, for this Zone Based Blocking Scheme. It better work or all of these Offensive coaches are gone..
