The big left tackle out of Louisville is expected to be a day one starter for Gang Green and to be Sam Darnold’s number one bodyguard for years to come.
The Jets have largely neglected the offensive line in the early rounds since the days of D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Nick Mangold who went on to become the foundation of some of the best Jets teams in franchise history. The Jets are surely hoping the Becton’s selection will be a big first step in making the team relevant once again.
