Alijah Vera-Tucker is the New York Jets‘ modern-day offensive version of Joe Klecko.
As versatile as an offensive lineman could possibly be, Joe Douglas’s gem of a 14th overall NFL draft selection (2021) has already played left guard, right guard, left tackle and left tackle in his short career.
After playing 16 games his rookie season, AVT moved to right guard after the Jets signed veteran Laken Tomlinson. After playing some at right guard, the Jets surprised everybody by moving Vera-Tucker to left tackle in the team’s stunning 24-20 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Just a week later, AVT moved to right tackle once Duane Brown returned to the lineup.
Many of the analytics diehards criticized the Jets’ move to trade up for the USC stud at No. 14 in the 2021 NFL draft, but Vera-Tucker has NFL All-Pro talent dripping from every part of his football soul.
