Mekhi Becton will get his shot.

The former first-round pick will start at right tackle for the Jets on Saturday against the Giants, coach Robert Saleh announced ahead of practice Tuesday.

With the offensive line being the team’s biggest area of concern throughout training camp, that marks something of an admission that the Jets still need to find a solution.

It is also a major chance for Becton — who has not played in a regular season game since Week 1 of 2021 — to impress.

Becton’s ceiling is still high, but he has not delivered due to injuries, weight issues and underperformance. 

Saleh said that Becton’s attitude has been a plus during camp.

But that will not mean much if it doesn’t translate to on-field performance.

Protecting Aaron Rodgers, who will also start Saturday, will be the first test of that.
