Hughes believes the Jets could revamp their offensive line by signing players like Patriots G Joe Thuney and Lions G Graham Glasgow, in addition to selecting a left tackle and center in the “early rounds” of the 2020 NFL Draft.
In the end, Hughes would be surprised if the Jets don’t sign Thuney or Redskins G Brandon Scherff.
As for potential draft targets for Jets at No. 11 overall, Hughes writes that New York would “run their card up” if Georgia OT Andrew Thomas, Alabama OT Jedrick Wills, or Iowa OT Tristan Wirfs were available to them. However, if that proves to not be the case, he could see them drafting a receiver like Alabama’s Jerry Jeudy or Oklahoma’s CeeDee Lamb.
