Mel Kiper Mock Draft 4.0: Jets Take Germain Ifedi

Matthew Emmons-USA TODAY Sports

Mel Kiper is out with a new mock draft. He has the Jets selecting an offensive lineman with their first round pick.

20. New York Jets

*Germain Ifedi, OT, Texas A&M

One of the fastest-rising prospects in the draft, Ifedi has the prototype frame for an NFL left tackle, with long arms and quick feet. You're certainly projecting a little here, because he's far more about potential than polish at this point, but you could end up with a steal at a need position. Ifedi can also play guard.'

It feels like the Jets are in a position where they almost have to make an investment in the offensive line this year. D'Brickashaw Ferguson's situation is anything but certain. Even ignoring Ferguson's situation, the current group is old, expensive, and ineffective, the magical trio. The unit is going to have to be completely overhauled in the not too distant future.

Do you think Ifedi is the right guy to start that process?
