Size does matter when it comes to offensive linemen, and the Jets got the biggest prize in this draft when they landed Louisville's 6-7, 364-pound Mekhi Becton, whom some scouts thought could turn out to be the best tackle in the entire draft.
And size isn't his only attribute. He shocked many by running a 5.1 in the 40 at the combine and showing off quicker feet than anyone thought he had.
Yes there are issues -- the flagged drug test, his weight -- but the risks are easily outweighed by the reward. And yes, the Jets could have drafted the best receiver in the draft at 11, but GM Joe Douglas has been right to focus on the offensive line first. He can easily address receiver in Round 2.
So the draft broke right for the Jets when two tackles were waiting for them at 11, and Douglas did the smart thing by sticking with his plan. He filled a big need and has made sure his most important asset -- Sam Darnold -- is going to be well-protected. It's hard to argue with that.
