Brandon Shell, OT
Next up is South Carolina’s Brandon Shell, a guy who the Jets felt so good about they traded up in the fifth round to snag.
Ryan Clady and Breno Giacomini are the current bookend starters on the offensive line for Chan Gialey. After that it’s Ben Ijalana, and this rookie. Odds are one of the two will be needed at one point this season. This will especially become the case of Giacomini is one of the unfortunate souls who becomes the top cap casualty in favor of a Fitz return.
If Shell can show incredible promise as a fifth round pick making a measly $450 thousand, he’d provide extreme value in a necessary spot on the roster (offensive line).
