Why NY Jets fans should still believe in Mekhi Becton

New York Jets general manager Joe Douglas‘ first draft class was considered a good group after its 2020 rookie season. Two years later, most members of the class are on the chopping block heading into Year 3.

Injuries have derailed the careers of almost the entire class. Mekhi Becton, Denzel Mims, Ashtyn Davis, Bryce Hall, and Braden Mann have missed significant time over the last two seasons with various injuries. Former fourth-round pick Cameron Clark was forced to retire before ever playing a snap.

The only player who has met or surpassed expectations was cornerback Bryce Hall.
