Jets Address Offensive Line In Latest Mock Draft
No. 8: New York Jets — Joe Alt, OT, Notre Dame
Aaron Rodgers or not, the Jets have to upgrade the offensive line. Joe Alt is on the heels of Fashanu in most rankings, but make no mistake, the Notre Dame product is a star in his own right. At 6-foot-8, 322 pounds, and possessing elite traits, Alt checks all the boxes.
No. 9: Los Angeles Chargers — Jer’Zhan Newton, DL, Illinois
The steam behind Jer’Zhan Newton as the top defender taken in 2024 is building. While that didn’t come to fruition in this mock draft, No. 9 overall isn’t too shabby. The Chargers have a porous run defense and lack an interior pass rusher of Newton’s caliber.
No. 10: Tennessee Titans — Brock Bowers, TE, Georgia
Off sheer talent alone, the Titans get a steal with Brock Bowers at No. 10. The Georgia standout is a tad undersized, but he passes with flying colors in every other category. He’s a dangerous pass catcher, a committed blocker, and a beast with the ball in his hands.
Montez Sweat And Dallas Turner? Sign Me Up!
No. 11: Chicago Bears (via LV) — Dallas Turner, EDGE, Alabama
Few in the class flex the size and speed profile of Dallas Turner. As a standup rusher at Alabama, Turner is at his best. He uses an impressive first step and a wide array of pass-rushing moves to get to the quarterback. The Bears need an imposing threat opposite Montez Sweat.
No. 12: New Orleans Saints — Malik Nabers, WR, LSU
The Saints could go the quarterback route, but with the top three names already gone, I see Malik Nabers as the target. Nabers played his college football in the same state, and his skill set, including an elite contested catch ability, would be a welcomed addition alongside Chris Olave.
No. 13: Green Bay Packers — Taliese Fuaga, OT, Oregon State
The Packers are another team that cannot go into the 2024 season without reinforcements in the trenches. Taliese Fuaga is a right tackle prospect with the ability to kick inside or even play the blindside on Sundays.
