Each week during the NFL season and then at points during the offseason SB Nation asks fans questions about their favorite team and the league as a whole. We call it FanPulse.
Recently Jets fans were asked about the biggest Draft need the team has. The verdict was unanimous.
Offensive line is certainly an enormous Draft need.
The Jets probably won’t be able to fully fix the offensive line without utilizing both the Draft and free agency. There is a certain urgency to invest early picks in the offensive line, though. Years of drafting neglect have left the unit without much youth.
Chuma Edoga is the only conceivable starter on a rookie contract, and his actual ability level is unknown at this point. It has been fourteen years since the Jets invested a first round pick in the offensive line. The team has only sparingly used second or third round picks to help the trenches in that span.
That needs to change this year.
