An offseason after acquiring future Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers in a blockbuster trade, the New York Jets still have roster voids to fill if they want to compete for the Super Bowl.
As the Jets try to trade former first-round pick Zach Wilson, a selection might be used on the offensive line, at receiver, or even quarterback.So,
who will the Jets select with the 10th overall choice in the NFL Draft? According to Chris Trapasso's recent mock draft, New York will invest in the trenches with their first-round pick, selecting Joe Alt, an offensive tackle from Notre Dame.
"There's a hint of projection about Alt; he needs to grow stronger. "Technically, he's all set," CBS reports. "This Jets have to address the offensive front with Aaron Rodgers set to return in 2024.
With the uncertainty of Mekhi Becton, another former first-round pick of the Jets, poised to hit free agency, finding their next blindside protector is critical.
Alt is undoubtedly one of those prospective replacements, as the Notre Dame lineman has three seasons of great evaluations from PFF, including 78.8 in 2021, 91.4 in 2022, and 88.9 this season.
If the draft goes as predicted by CBS, Alt will be only the second of four offensive tackles selected in the first round.
Only Oregon State's Taliese Fuaga went ahead of him, with the Tennessee Titans selecting him at No. 7.
