NFL Draft 2020 is carrying the sports conversation during the pandemic. Thursday, Friday and Saturday will be three days of 255 players being selected and making their NFL dreams come true. To break down the Jets’ plans for the draft, we present a brand-new episode of the “Gang’s All Here” podcast.
Brian Costello and I open the show honoring the life of Post sports photographer Anthony Causi, who lost a brave battle with coronavirus, and Coz talks about his memories of working with him over the years. We then get into the Jets’ No. 11 pick in the draft and break down whom they might take. Coz believes they definitely will go with an offensive lineman, and would take Georgia’s Andrew Thomas if he is still on the board. I believe getting a No. 1 wide receiver like Jerry Jeudy would be the move, but either decision makes sense for Gang Green.
We also go through the rest of the Jets’ draft picks as Coz does a mock draft of his own.
Coz then welcomes in Greg McElroy, the former Jets quarterback and current ESPN college football analyst. McElroy analyzes the SEC standouts whom the Jets could think about: Thomas, Jedrick Willis Jr., Jeudy and Henry Ruggs. He breaks down whether it’s more important for a QB to have weapons or a strong offensive line. McElroy also looks back to the “smack-talking” 2012 Jets and discussed working at ESPN with his old buddies Mark Sanchez, Rex Ryan and Tim Tebow.
