The NFL Draft is set to begin on April 27, and teams should be finishing up their draft boards.
One position that should have a few first-round picks is the offensive line.
Every team is looking to protect their franchise quarterback, and there are a few very good O-line prospects.
One of those stud prospects is Ohio State offensive lineman Paris Johnson Jr.
He is a lock to be picked in the top 20, and many teams around the top 10 are interested.
According to Mike Garafolo, the Philadelphia Eagles and New York Jets will both meet with Johnson.
Ohio State LT Paris Johnson is in Philly for a pre-draft visit with the #Eagles today and then heads up to see the #Jets tonight and tomorrow, sources say. He also visited the #AZCardinals last week. Lots of possible fits in the top 10-15 for the talented, well-rounded prospect.

Johnson is a plug-and-play offensive tackle in the NFL.
Whoever drafts him should have a starter for the next decade.
Most teams that draft an offensive lineman high are looking for some position versatility.
Johnson has that as he can play both left tackle and left guard.
The Eagles already have the best offensive line in football, so adding to that may be unnecessary.
But, the Jets could certainly use some help up front.
Especially if they can land quarterback Aaron Rodgers.
All signs are pointing to Rodgers being the QB in New York next year but no deal is official yet.
Keeping Rodgers upright will be one of the most important things for the Jets.
Which is why they should be fully invested in taking an offensive lineman with their first pick.
Other names the Jets will consider are Broderick Jones, Peter Skoronski, and Darnell Wright.
Based on the pre-draft visits, expect to see a new offensive lineman in New York come draft day.NEXT: Joe Burrow Holds Modern NFL History
