The New York Jets have selected offensive tackle Mekhi Becton out of Louisville University with the 11th overall pick in the first round of the 2020 NFL draft.

Mekhi Becton is a 21 year old, 6’ 7”, 369 pound mountain of an offensive tackle out of Louisville University. Becton has enormous length, bulk and power. Together with rare foot speed, quickness and flexibility for his size, Becton is the most physically gifted of the offensive tackles in this draft. Becton is a mauler in the run game. In pass protection his ridiculous size would overwhelm many college opponents. However, he needs coaching to improve his technique at the pro level if he is to be a top pass protector in the NFL. Becton may have the most upside of any tackle in this draft. It will be up to the Jets coaches to bring out every ounce of his incredible potential.

Welcome to the Jets Mekhi Becton. May you wreck opposing defenses for the next decade for the Green and White.

The Jets remaining picks in the 2020 NFL draft are as follows:

Second Round: Pick #48

Third Round: Pick #68 and Pick #79

Fourth Round: Pick #120

Fifth Round: Pick #158

Sixth Round: Pick #191 and Pick #211
