ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr. has released his final first round mock draft of 2020 just hours before things get going. He has the Jets picking Louisville tackle Mekhi Becton with the 11th overall pick.

11. New York Jets Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville

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.

Joe Burrow, Chase Young, Derrick Brown, Tristan Wirfs, Tua Tagovailoa, Justin Herbert, Isaiah Simmons, Jedrick Wills, Jeff Okudah, and Andrew Thomas are off the board in this mock.

Becton would be the last of the top tier tackles available in this scenario. With no wide receivers off the board by 11, the odds of a top prospect at that position falling to the Jets in the second round would also go up.

Soon we won’t have to rely on mocks because the Draft is almost here.
