The NY Jets have met with a bunch of prospects at the NFL Combine. Here’s a full breakdown of who they met with and what you need to know.

The NY Jets are doing their homework at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis.

The full list of all the players the NY Jets has met with was provided by Charlie Campbell, Senior NFL Draft Analyst for Walter Football.

Here are 10 players that the NY Jets have met with at the NFL Combine:

Mekhi Becton, OT, Louisville

This has been one of the biggest risers throughout the entire offseason process. Becton has freakish size and traits. He could go as high as fourth overall or he could be available when the Jets pick at 11. Perhaps the biggest boom vs bust prospect in the 2020 NFL Draft.

K’Lavon Chaisson, DE/OLB, LSU 

Chaisson doesn’t have the insane college production you’d expect from a blue-chip SEC pass rusher, but he has all the tools to play on all three levels (rushing the passer, in coverage, and stuffing the run).

Trevon Diggs, CB, Alabama

NY Jets fans still get the willies when Alabama football prospects are considered for premium selections in the draft. After watching Dee Milliner turn into one of the biggest busts in recent memory, Gang Green fans aren’t exactly running to draft more members of the Crimson Tide.

Trevon has a tendency to be baited into underneath action because he’s so hungry to make big plays and that can get him into trouble.

Kristian Fulton, CB, LSU 

Kristian Fulton was once thought of as one of the top corners in this draft class and that buzz has since sizzled. Injury concerns, confidence issues, and was suspended for the entirety of 2017 for “falsifying specimen for a drug test” per NFL.com.

Jerry Jeudy, WR, Alabama 

Jerry Jeudy is considered one of if not the best wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft class. Jeudy has a master’s in route running and has an ability to create separation. If Jeudy and one of the top offensive tackles are on the board in the first round the Jets are going to have a hell of a decision to make.

6'7" and 364 lbs… OL Mekhi Becton just ran a 5.11u 40-yard dash! ?

Kyle Murphy, G, Rhode Island 

The NY Jets are doing their homework on smaller school prospects trying to find a diamond in the rough. Kyle Murphy is an interesting prospect, but he got pushed around during the annual East-West Shrine Bowl due to the talent level he was facing.

Julian Okwara, 3-4OLB/OLB, Notre Dame 

Julian is a lanky edge rusher from a premier program in Notre Dame. While his senior season ended in disappointment from a production and injury standpoint, he’s worth a mid-round flier.

Amik Robertson, CB, Louisiana Tech 

Amik Robertson is a smaller player (listed at 5-foot-9, 175 pounds) but he has been a super productive player from Louisiana Tech: 14 combined interceptions in three seasons with at least four picks in every year he started. On top of the turnovers he created, Amik also registered 34 pass deflections and always seemed to be in the right place at the right time.

Andrew Thomas, OT, Georgia 

For some strange reason despite games not being played, Andrew Thomas has seen his NFL Draft stock tumble throughout this process. Growing concerns about his “boxiness and lack of technique” seems to be the main culprit.

Jedrick Wills, OT, Alabama 

Wills played right tackle for the Crimson Tide, but many people believe he has the traits to jump over to the left side at the next level. Depending on who you ask you’ll get a different answer on who is the best offensive tackle in this class, but a lot of people like Jedrick Wills Jr out of Bama.
