The New York Jets case for offensive tackle over wide receiver at No. 11 in the NFL Draft is clear beyond all doubts.
It’s that special time of year again. You know, the one that features yelling, finger wags and a whole bunch of head shaking. The time in which everybody suddenly identifies as an expert, those whose “Quinnen Williams is Aaron Donald 2.0″ takes suddenly never existed.
NFL Draft time is here.
Yeah, we’ve been stuck in NFL Draft season for some time now—nearly a full year since the “way too early” mock drafts hit us the Sunday following the 2019 edition. Now is different. Now, with just 12 days until virtual Round 1, the draft energy officially begins.
What’s energy without the New York Jets involved? No, Jets fans no longer have the New York City-draft tradition of blowing up at the sound of any first-round announcement, but that doesn’t mean all is lost. There’s plenty of chaos, name-calling and “expertise” flying around Jets land.
This year, the subject revolves around offensive lineman or wide receiver at No. 11, and, amazingly, fans continue to want to torture themselves with the idea of wide receiver no matter the situation.
Make no mistake, selecting a wideout at No. 11 isn’t a sin. Depending on who’s available, Jerry Jeudy or CeeDee Lamb at that spot makes sense. What’s wrong is craving one of those youngsters if everything else is even.
The evidence that offensive tackle at No. 11 over wide receiver, if everything else is even, is beyond overwhelming.
