Analyst on line prospect – ‘Reminds me a lot of AVT’ Dan Leberfeld

If the Jets stay at 13 in the first round, there is a lot of speculation they will pick an offensive lineman.

Possibilities, depending on who is still on the board, include Ohio State’s Paris Johnson (pictured above on JC’s latest cover), Georgia’s Broderick Jones and Northwestern’s Peter Skoronski.

While Skoronski was a left tackle for the Wildcats, a move to guard could be in the offing on the next level.

But with this player’s versatility and intelligence, any line position is possible for him on the next level, and that is why one draft analyst says he reminds him of a talented Jet, who played all over the line last year.

“He reminds me a lot of Alijah Vera Tucker,” said former NFL scout Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network. “Remember with Vera Tucker last year,  or when he was coming out into that draft? Is he a guard? Is he a tackle? It turns out he can do whatever the heck you want him to do. [Skoronski] is really, really good.”
