NFL Network — Lance Zierlein
Round 1, Pick 11: Alabama T Jedrick Wills
"The Jets will have to dodge some draft bullets in order to have one of the top four tackles fall to them at Pick No. 11. But in this scenario, the best tackle in the draft is ready and waiting."

The Athletic — Dane Brugler
Round 1, Pick 11: Louisville T Mekhi Becton
"With no receivers off the board so far, the Jets will be tempted to go in that direction. But Becton has the talent to develop into the stabilizing force New York has been seeking on the offensive line."

Bleacher Report — Matt Miller
Round 1, Pick 11: Louisville T Mekhi Becton
The New York Jets will be watching with anticipation as the offensive tackles fall off the board with hopes of drafting a true blindside protector for Sam Darnold. In Mekhi Becton, they would have that and more. Becton has the most upside of any offensive tackle in the 2020 draft class thanks to his massive 6'7", 364-pound frame with violent finishing power and smooth agility for a man his size. He's a little raw, but his ability to develop quickly with good coaching can't be underestimated. If Becton is on the board with Wills and Thomas off, he's a smart pick for general manager Joe Douglas' first draft.

Round 2, Pick 48: USC WR Michael Pittman Jr.
Round 3, Pick 68 (via NYG): Utah EDGE Bradlee Anae
Round 3, Pick 79: Virginia CB Bryce Hall
Round 4, Pick 120: Memphis RB Antonio Gibson
Round 5, Pick 158: Ohio State IOL Jonah Jackson
Round 6, Pick 191: Michigan S Josh Metellus
Round 6, Pick 211 (via KC): Iowa QB Nate Stanley

NFL Network — Daniel Jeremiah
Round 1, Pick 11: Louisville T Mekhi Becton
"The Jets could opt for the top WR or trade down, but Becton's upside is too tempting."

ESPN — Mel Kiper Jr.
Round 1, Pick 11: Louisville T Mekhi Becton
"With the wide receiver class so deep, the Jets could grab a starter in Round 2. They can't afford to miss on the top tier of this tackle class, though, and Becton is an athletic player with outstanding feet."

NBC Sports — Peter King
Round 1, Pick 11: Louisville T Mekhi Becton
"And the run on tackles ends after 11 picks, right about where the football world thinks it will—with GM Joe Douglas' first draft choice as Jets GM. Becton is 6-7 ½ and 365 pounds. He will be the Andre the Giant of the AFC East. 'The most impressive thing about him,' his former college coach at Louisville, Bobby Petrino, said, 'is he can reverse-dunk.' Yikes. I do believe that Sam Darnold would find the most impressive thing about his left tackle for the next eight years would be keeping him clean 16 Sundays each fall. This would be a solid pick for Douglas, and not just because Becton can block out the sun. He's competitive and feisty."

NFL.com — Chad Reuter
Round 1, Pick 11: Louisville T Mekhi Becton
"There have not been many offensive tackles in recent years with Becton's combination of size (6-foot-7, 364 pounds) and foot quickness. He's a finisher and has the ability to play right tackle on the Jets' revamped line."

Round 2, Pick 48: Ohio State CB Damon Arnette
Round 3, Pick 68 (via NYG): Florida EDGE Jonathan Greenard
Round 3, Pick 79: Notre Dame WR Chase Claypool
Round 4, Pick 120: Texas S Brandon Jones
Round 5, Pick 158: Kansas EDGE Azur Kamara
Round 6, Pick 191: LSU T Saahdiq Charles
Round 6, Pick 211 (via KC): Texas A&M Braden Mann

PFF — Kevin Cole
Round 1, Pick 11: Oklahoma CeeDee Lamb
"Lamb gives the third-year quarterback the WR1 he desperately needs. The Jets now have a sneaky deep receiving group, with Jamison Crowder roaming underneath, Breshad Perriman clearing out deep and Lamb working all areas of the field."

Round 2, Pick 48: Boise State T Ezra Cleveland
Round 3, Pick 68 (via NYG): UCLA CB Darnay Holmes
Round 3, Pick 79: Michigan State EDGE Kenny Willekes

NFL Network — Charley Casserly
Round 1, Pick 11: Louisville T Mekhi Becton
"Rebuilding the offensive line is essential to protecting Sam Darnold and getting the Le'Veon Bell-led run game going. Becton helps in a big way."
