Round 1, Pick 11: Alabama OT Jedrick Wills
The New York Jets should be smiling all the way to the podium when the card is sent in with my top-ranked offensive tackle coming off the board to protect Sam Darnold.
Darnold, when protected well this year, showed all the tools to be a very good starting NFL quarterback. The trouble was that he was rarely well-protected as the Jets' offensive line was ravaged by injury.
Drafting Wills, who was tasked with protecting Tua Tagovailoa's blind side as the Alabama right tackle, gives the Jets a Week 1 answer at left tackle. His movement skills are the best of any tackle in the 2020 class, and his technique is pro-ready.
Receiver is a huge need, as is edge-rusher, but protecting Darnold has to be the top priority for general manager Joe Douglas in his first draft.
Round 2, Pick 48: UCF WR Gabriel Davis
Round 3, Pick 68 (via NYG): Utah EDGE Bradlee Anae
Round 4, Pick 79: Florida State RB Cam Akers
