3. Mekhi Becton, OT
The situation regarding Mekhi Becton is interesting, to say the least.
Becton joined the franchise with quite a lot of fanfare after he was selected 11th overall at the 2020 NFL Draft. While he showed promise as a rookie, his career began to head in the wrong direction when serious knee injuries held him to just one total game in the 2021 and 2022 seasons.
The good news is that Becton has been quite healthy this season, only missing one game thus far. The bad news is that his play has left much to be desired and is one of the main reasons why New York's offensive line has struggled throughout the year.
The 24-year-old offensive tackle is tied for the most sacks allowed (12) while also taking the second-most penalties (18) this season. He also holds 59.5 and 54.5 pass and run block grades, respectively, on Pro Football Focus, playing a big factor in his being the No. 73-ranked OT out of 84 graded players.
After the Jets already declined his fifth-year option back in May, chances are that Sunday could be the last time we see Becton with the team.
