Jets land Washington OT Troy Fautanu in latest Draft Wire mock

Our friends over at Draft Wire released their latest mock draft right before free agency and while the Jets do go offensive tackle, as is becoming expected, it’s a different name than the ones we’ve become used to in mocks.

This time around, it’s Troy Fautanu of Washington who is the selection at No. 10 for the Jets. This was another case where the Jets had their pick of the litter outside of Joe Alt, who went No. 7 to the Tennessee Titans.

Fautanu brings power, strength and athletic ability to the league. He was a key cog in helping Michael Penix Jr. throw for almost 5,000 yards, be a Heisman Trophy finalist and lead the Huskies to a spot in the National Championship Game.

The Jets will have three new starters along the offensive line compared to last season — Duane Brown and Mekhi Becton are both free agents, Laken Tomlinson was released — so there’s a good chance one of those starters comes via the No. 10 overall pick.

For the record, for those wondering if they could pass up Georgia tight end Brock Bowers, he was long gone in this mock, going No. 5 to the Los Angeles Chargers.
