Max Mitchell earned All-American honors with the Rajin’ Cajuns

The New York Jets used their penultimate scheduled pick at the 2022 NFL draft to address the trenches, utilizing the 111th overall choice to welcome in Louisiana offensive tackle Max Mitchell.

His arrival was heralded by metropolitan blocking legend Nick Mangold, who publicly announced the selection love from the 72nd floor of The Shard in London.

Mitchell, 22, is a three-year starter with the Cajuns and developed a reputation as a physical and athletic blocker.

He partook in three postseason trips with Louisiana, the most recent being a victorious visit to the New Orleans Bowl in December, a 36-21 win over Marshall that capped off a 13-win season, setting a program record and extending a streak of 10-plus win seasons to three years.

For his efforts, Mitchell was named to the All-Sun Belt team for the second straight season and was also granted third-team All-American honors.

The Jets’ final schedule pick is slated to arrive in the 117th slot.

After Jermaine Johnson, Max is probably the best value pick for the Jets in this draft. Good bye Chuma
