The offensive line was always a position analyst and fans alike knew the Jets would address. Whatever round/s it chose to be, everyone knew it would be a sensible move. Anything the Jets could do to protect their QB was always going to be a priority. After all, that position is still more clouded than the sky I write this under.
The Jets reached the 152rd overall pick and their 5th rounder to select a single player for their offensive line. Maccagnan chose to call the name of Jarvis Harrison, OG from Texas A&M.
Harrison would become the 3rd heaviest player at East Rutherford, that behind TJ Barnes and David Harrison. Weighing 330 lbs and 6ft 4, Harrison certainly has the frame to play guard in the NFL, although we mustn’t forget Maccagnan did sign Carpenter in free agency and re sign Willie Colon back to New York.
Harrison may have to compete with as many as 4 players for the guard position (Carpenter, Winters, Aboushi, Dozier).
This may be a challenge as the first concern to arise was Harrison’s work ethic. People do consider him a possible pro bowl talent, but it’s known his love for the game is lacking. Its apparent he likes basketball more than football, so our offensive line coach Steve Marshall may have his work cut out. Overall, he has the physical and technical traits to perform at the level required, lets see if he plays ball.
