New York Jets: Alijah Vera-Tucker
Last year’s choice: Jamal Adams
Last year we ran this series before Jamal Adams was traded to the Seattle Seahawks. Adams was really the only super talented player on the New York Jets when we ran the series last year and this time around there really are not any elite players.
There are some decent options, including the one that we chose, but there is not that option that jumps off the page. If this was a long-term situation then Alijah Vera-Tucker would jump off the page. As a one-year pick, he is a solid addition.
The debate is really between AVT and new signing Corey Davis. Neither of the candidates were even on the team last season and you could certainly make a good case for both.
Davis would be a solid third receiver to add the corps next season and would give the Chargers one of the best receiving corps in the league. However, Tyron Jonnson is not a slouch and I expect bigger things out of him this season.
The case for AVT is simple. He was someone who Charger fans were gearing up for the team to take before Rashawn Slater fell to 13. AVT would instantly be the starting left guard for the Chargers and would provide the team the kind of depth and flexibility that they need.
AVT could start at left guard but he could also fill in at tackle if needed. With Matt Feiler’s ability to play tackle and Brenden Jaimes versatility, the Chargers would have an offensive line built to withstand the storm,
