Jets select USC OL Chuma Edoga at #92

Recommended Posts

The first pick so far that i am meh on.  I mean.... we traded up for a developmental kid with work ethic issues?  Cool.

Edoga allowed only four pressures all of last year.  Needs to improve on his base strength to help his run game.  Should be an excellent pass protector at the next level though.

Dont like this pick. Hes not the next LT, if he is we are screwed. Sounds like Brandon Shell 2.0

We have not drafted a quality OL starter since 2006 outside of maybe Matt Slauson. Let think sink in. Cant wait to hear people say Winters and Shell...talk about setting the bar low.

I'm not keeping my hopes up. If we're lucky he'll be a JAG. Not good enough to praise but not so terrible you're asking for him to be benched.

As I've been saying for months... Jets have been high on this guy for a while

I'm not mad at this pick. He is the depth guy that we need who can play both LT and RT. He might even start at G and move Winters over to Center. Then swing him out to tackle if he needs to move there. We are getting the best pass protector in the draft and you guys are upset. Please don't tell me your mad because we gave up a 7th round pick. I'm not worried about his work ethic with Sam Darnold telling them to pick him. Sam knows him well and knows what he can do.

I was mad at first, but I remembered I did want a development tackle to replace Beachum. Then I saw he was rated 99.3 in pass protection as a tackle! He also can play OG. Because he's only 21, he's probably the best development oline prospect we could have landed at this point. All he has to do is get stronger and develop his run blocking skills. He'll be given time to work on that behind Beachum or Shell.

I actually picked him at this spot in the “post your final mock” topic, so i’m happy (or at least as happy as someone whose been a Jet fan for 54 years, can be)

Like this pick a lot, let him sit behind Beachum for a year and let him compete for the spot next year
