Fantasy Impact:

The Jets traded up to draft Vera-Tucker, marking the second straight year the team has drafted an offensive lineman in the first round. He will slot into the LG position beside last year's first-round pick, LT Mekhi Becton. Vera-Tucker is a powerful lineman with light feet who matches perfectly in the Jets new Shanahan-inspired blocking scheme. The Jets offensive line will be significantly improved this season with the additions of Vera-Tucker and RT Morgan Moses.
