  04/24/20 - OT *Mekhi BectonJr/2020, Louisville, 6-7, 364 (DS#2 OT) + More +

  Three years and done. That was Mekhi Becton's plan when he left Highland Springs, Virginia, for the University of Louisville. He accomplished that goal on Thursday. The former Louisville left tackle was drafted No. 11 in Thursday's NFL draft by the New York Jets, becoming one of the highest picked players in program history. He is the highest offensive lineman drafted in Louisville history and just the third offensive lineman taken in the first round. Once Becton fell to the 11th pick, he said he had a good idea that the Jets were going to take him. In a draft that was highlighted by a top-heavy offensive tackle class, Becton was the third tackle off the board. All four of the top tackles were taken in the top 15. "We are so excited to add a guy with his size and athletic ability and a guy we really feel can fortify our front for a long time," Jets general manager Joe Douglas said.

Although Becton always dreamed of walking across the stage at the NFL draft, he couldn't because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The NFL draft moved virtual, so he spent the evening with his parents, Semone and Jerome, his girlfriend, former U of L women's basketball player Bionca Dunham, and a few other family members. "I can't express how happy I am for Mekhi and his family to be a first-round selection," head coach Scott Satterfield said. "There aren't many people that are that big that can move the way he does, and he has such a bright future. He really answered a lot of questions on the way he played this year, and to his credit, he put all the work in to be one the best in the country. He's just scratching the surface with his potential and he has the opportunity to be an outstanding tackle in the NFL for a long time." - Courier Journal

  The Jets have selected offensive tackle Mekhi Becton of Louisville with their first pick, No. 11 overall, of the 2020 NFL Draft tonight. The pick was the first made by Joe Douglas as the Jets' general manager and an NFL GM since taking over the Green & White's GM office last June and the first made virtually by Douglas and his player personnel team due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. And it quickly addressed one of Douglas' stated goals for QB Sam Darnold, to "do everything in my power to take care of Sam, with protection and playmakers." Becton, at 6'7" and 364 pounds, is one of the biggest protectors available in this year's draft. He played in 35 games with 33 starts in his three seasons with the Cardinals, with the last 21 starts coming at LT. He received All-ACC first-team recognition after last season. - NewYorkJets.com

  Just a week before the NFL Draft, former Louisville left tackle Mekhi Becton had a drug test flagged at the February NFL Combine, according to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Becton, a 6-foot-7, 364-pound lineman, did not fail a drug test during his time at Louisville, but he was among other players who had a test flagged at the combine, according to Rapoport. "Multiple players had drug tests flagged at the NFL Combine & among those is projected top 10 pick #Louisville OT Mekhi Becton, I'm told," he tweeted.

According to reports, teams have been informed of Becton's drug test. Becton will now enter "Stage 1" of the league's intervention program for no more than 60 days, according to the new NFL collective bargaining agreement. In stage one, a medical director may require a player to submit to testing for substances of abuse as often as is required to evaluate the player adequately. If he's not flagged again within those 60 days, he would assume the same status as a player who has never been referred to the program. The Becton family did not immediately return a message seeking comment. - Courier Journal

  The big guys made a big statement at the NFL scouting combine Friday night. Wisconsin star Jonathan Taylor ran the fastest 40-yard dash (4.39 seconds) despite weighing in as the third-heaviest running back at the combine, and the offensive linemen had a solid showing, led by Louisville's 357-pound Mekhi Becton, who ran a 5.10 time in the 40. Raiders general manager Mike Mayock said on the NFL Network that he was more impressed with Becton's 5.10 than he was with Alabama wide receiver Henry Ruggs III, who ran a blazing 40-yard day in 4.27 on Thursday night that was just shy of John Ross's record of 4.22 set in 2017.

"Rich, you love the 4.22. Who's going to beat the 4.22?" Mayock told former colleague Rich Eisen during a visit to the broadcast booth. "I believe him running the 5.51 is more impressive than what the wideout from Alabama, Ruggs, ran yesterday." Other O-linemen who impressed during the first Friday night live workouts at Lucas Oil Stadium were Iowa's Tristan Wirfs, who topped them all at 4.85 seconds in the 40 and dominated the position drills and other tests. - AP College Football

  University of Louisville offensive tackle Mekhi Becton will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, the junior announced Monday. Becton also announced that he won't participate in the Music Bowl against Mississippi State on Dec. 30. "I wish Mekhi all the best as he pursues the next chapter in his football career, UofL head coach Scott Satterfield said. "He played a huge role, not only in our turnaround on offense, but within the entire team. He showed how dominating a player he can be with our ability to run the football this season. We look forward to seeing growth as a player and are here to support him as he travels along that path."

Becton, a 6-foot-8, 370-pound junior from Highland Springs, Va., was named the Jacobs Blocking Trophy recipient, the first ever at the school. The junior started 33 games at offensive tackle for the Cardinals and was named ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week on Oct. 7 after his performance in the 41-39 victory over Boston College. He graded out better than 80 percent in eight games and registered over 60 knockdown blocks to help the Cardinals finish the regular season at 7-5 and 5-3 in the ACC -- a turnaround of five games from a year ago. - Louisville Football

  2019 JACOBS BLOCKING TROPHY AWARD WINNER: University of Louisville offensive tackle Mekhi Becton has been voted the winner of the Jacobs Blocking Trophy, Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford announced Monday. Louisville has won the honor for the first time since officially joining the league in 2014. "I'm really proud of Mekhi and extremely happy for him because of all the hard work he put into this season," Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield said. "Mekhi has had a tremendous year and deserves this outstanding recognition as one of the top blockers in this prestigious conference. He has been a leader for our offensive line and our offense as a whole, and to be recognized for his accomplishments by members of this league is a great honor for Mekhi. To be the first Louisville player to win the Jacobs Blocking Trophy is truly a testament to type of person and player Mehki has been this season."
