4. What are the biggest storylines to watch in OTAs and training camp for the offensive line?

For the first time in a long while, it's clear what the line will be entering Week 1 of the NFL season, so the Jets should be steering clear of a lot of drama this offseason. Unfortunately, there are still plenty of questions to be answered regarding Mekhi Becton.

No, not about his absence from voluntary workouts, as no one should have a problem with that. This is more about the injury concerns that have followed him since his rookie year in the league two seasons ago.

When healthy, Becton has the potential to be one of the top-five tackles in the game, and he could do some serious damage this season paired with Vera-Tucker on the right side of the line.

When Becton does arrive, all eyes will be on him, but if you trust the work he does with phenomenal offensive line coach Duke Manyweather, we could be seeing an invigorated and motivated No. 77 come training camp.


5. Predictions for the 2022 NY Jets offensive line?

This improved Jets offensive line has plenty of expectations as they failed to protect a rookie Zach Wilson. Everyone within this organization believes that with greater protection, No. 2 can thrive within this offense.

While any type of improvement will help the Jets, with health, this group should easily move into the top-15 in the league, and this will significantly help the team as a whole move forward with their young core.

In terms of recognition, the Jets have so much potential, but considering their play from a year ago, it shouldn't be too crazy for the Jets to expect both of their guards, Vera-Tucker and Tomlinson, to be featured at the Pro Bowl if all goes according to plan.
