New York Jets must draft an offensive player in Round 1 of the 2020 NFL Draft

The New York Jets have a very clear plan of attack entering the offseason. Continue to build around young quarterback Sam Darnold by giving him a proper supporting cast on offense.

General manager Joe Douglas should have ample opportunities to execute that plan in the offseason, but there will perhaps be no better opportunity than in the upcoming 2020 NFL Draft.

For years, the Jets have leaned more towards defense in the early rounds of drafts. With the exception of Sam Darnold in 2018, the Jets haven’t selected an offensive player in the first round of the NFL Draft since the franchise took Mark Sanchez sixth overall way back in 2009.
