The No. 1 priority for the New York Jets is supporting Sam Darnold. The Jets haven’t done a good enough job of that in his first two seasons. That has to change now. The Jets could either go with one of the top receivers still on the board but with the position being historically deep this year, even without opening up the player pool to all college players, the Jets choose to go with offensive line reinforcements.
Jedrick Wills had a standout year for the Alabama Crimson Tide where he helped give Tua a clean pocket and helped to open holes for running back Najee Harris. Wills will protect the blindside of Darnold and pave way for Gang Green’s rushing attack.
Whether they were in Oakland, Los Angeles or now in Las Vegas, the Raiders have struggled for years to draft and develop cornerbacks. Taking Derek Stingley, Jr would end the string of busts and flame-outs in the secondary for the Raiders. Stingley was only a freshman last season for the national champion Tigers but was arguably the team’s best player outside of Burrow.
Stingley still has two more years in college before the real draft and when he is eligible, you can bank on him being a top-three pick. He can do it all in the secondary and should be a bigger part of the return game and even in the passing game for LSU his next two years. DBU has produced a number of greats throughout the years and Stingley may end up being the best.
