Vera-Tucker's a versatile offensive lineman that can play any position on the line. He's a solid athlete and is able to get up to the second level easily. Has enough power to play in a man-blocking scheme and also has enough athleticism to be effective in zone blocking schemes. Intelligent player and the experience playing at both guard and tackle certainly helps. Able to quickly come off of his man if he drops out and/or identify stunts and loops. Solid anchor ability. Very rarely is he driven backwards. Good hand technique at both positions. Able to get leverage inside and fight to keep positioning. Solid balance. Very rarely is he moved from side to side. Solid run blocker and especially when climbing to the second level. Shields and creates open running lanes for his backs. Solid in pass protection, but does struggle from time to time with pure speed rushers on the outside. Doesn't have elite pop out of his stance, which could lead to more effectiveness on the interior. Plays tough and has enough strength to withstand heavier interior rushers. Overall, Vera-Tucker's a no-nonsense player that is going to be very valuable for a NFL offense that needs versatility from their OL. He's not overly flashy, but is an extremely solid player. Should be considered a round one prospect.

Alijah Vera-Tucker signs rookie contract

14th overall pick, OG Alijah Vera-Tucker, signs his rookie contract with the New York Jets.

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.
