4. Graham Glasgow, Guard/Center, 27

Detroit has spent a good amount of draft capital on offensive linemen and it has worked out for them as they have had a solid line for a couple of seasons now. Graham Glasgow is a young, versatile lineman who has experience at multiple positions up front, which could be huge for the Jets.

In 15 games last season for the Lions, he had only three penalties and allowed zero sacks. Additionally, Glasgow has been pretty reliable as he played 81 percent of the snaps in 2019 and the two years before that he was at 100 percent.

Glasgow’s biggest appeal has to be his versatility. Being able to match up personnel for Adam Gase would be a huge advantage as he could move Glasgow around on specific plays, in his complicated offense. The lineman also has some playoff experience which also would be good for some of the young guys. He’s definitely a guy that Sam Darnold and Le’Veon Bell could get comfortable with.

3. Connor McGovern, Center Age: 26

Let’s face it the New York Jets need a center and Connor McGovern would be a solid choice. In 16 games played last season, he played 99.8 percent of the snaps for the Broncos. Durability is definitely a plus for the Jets who had a multitude of injuries last season.

For the 2019 season, he had zero penalties and allowed just one sack. At 6-4 and 305-pounds, he is a big young center who could easily become the best linemen on the Jets. While the Broncos have not been good the last few years there is no reason why McGovern can’t come in with a winning attitude.

A durable center would be huge for Darnold’s growth and development. Last season the Jets signal-caller had a merry go round of guys snapping him the ball and none were as good McGovern.
