As part of the Post’s 2021 NFL Draft preview, we take a look at what the Jets could do in each position. Sunday: Ligne offensive

The Jets are set to draft another first-round quarterback in BYU’s Zach Wilson. Will they do a better job protecting him than they did with Sam Darnold? Now is the question that hangs over this franchise.

The Jets are feeling great on tackles with Mekhi Becton and George Fant and were encouraged by how center Connor McGovern ended the season. They feel like they need to level up in custody and have not been able to do so in free will.

One of the Jets’ next picks after taking Wilson No. 2 overall should be used on a guard. USC’s Alijah Vera-Tucker is the best goaltender in this draft, but he might be gone by the time the Jets hit 23. Alabama’s Landon Dickerson and Alex Leatherwood are second-round possibilities, while like the Ohio State. Wyatt Davis and Jalen Mayfield from Michigan.

The Jets could also draw a cross and move it to temporarily keep or drag McGovern to keep. The best centers for this project are Creed Humphrey from Oklahoma, Josh Myers from the state of Ohio and Quinn Meinerz from Wisconsin-Whitewater. All should be Day 2 picks.

Meinerz has player Joe Douglas written all over him. A Division III player, he stole the show at the Senior Bowl and showed he could compete in the best competitions. Team captain in Whitewater, he would make sense in the third inning for the Jets.
