RD 2 – Mekhi Becton OT Louisville
In the second round of the draft, Dave Gettleman is full-on frothing at the mouth as he sprints to the podium with utter bliss to announce the selection of perhaps the largest hog mollie in the draft, tackle Mekhi Becton of Louisville.
Miraculously he slips to the early second round with a quarterback frenzy leading the charge early on, followed by a grabbing of defensive playmakers and the selection of a number of other highly rated tackles like Andrew Thomas, Tristan Wirfs, Jedrick Wills, and Austin Jackson.
At 6’7″ and 375-pounds, Becton is an absolute mauler that immediately anchors what has appeared to have been a group of turnstiles on the offensive line. A mauler in pass protection, Becton protects the blind side of Danny Dimes, allowing him to showcase his pinpoint accuracy and to cure his fumble-itis epidemic.
In addition to regularly uprooting would be pass rushers with his gargantuan frame and Herculean strength, Becton serves double duty, acting as a top-notch road grader in the run game. With the impressive athletic ability to shed defenders and get to the second level with ease, Becton should serve as a one-man convoy for Saquon Barkley to follow in the run game.
If that wasn’t enough to leave Giants fans feeling as giddy as a child on Christmas Eve, perhaps knowing that he plays with a mean streak that may rival that of current Giants enforcer Will Hernandez should do the trick. Could this day get any better? Glad you asked…..
