Jets trade up in NFL Draft to select Alijah Vera-Tucker

The Jets have their quarterback and now a massive lineman to protect him.

Gang Green traded up with the Vikings to select USC offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker with the 14th-overall pick in the first round of the NFL Draft on Thursday.

The Jets traded the No. 23 pick, and two third-rounders in this year’s draft to Minnesota, to secure the 6-foot-4, 315-pound Vera-Tucker. In return the Jets also got back a fourth-rounder.

Earlier in the night, the Jets used the No. 2 pick to select BYU quarterback Zach Wilson.
