10. New York Jets: Garrett Wilson, WR, Ohio State
The New York Jets need to continue to add playmakers to the offense to support Zach Wilson.
Wilson is the type of quarterback who can undoubtedly excel off-script. He needs guys out wide who can help him be good when he plays on schedule.
Wilson is the type of receiver who absolutely can do that. He is constantly finding ways to get himself open and create separation at the catch point. Despite not being the biggest receiver, Wilson plays big and makes himself available at all levels of the field.
The Jets could look at the strategy we saw from the Cincinnati Bengals last year of taking a wide receiver over a tackle early as a way to support their young QB.
11. Washington Football Team: Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas
If Treylon Burks winds up being picked near the top 10 of the 2022 NFL Draft, he needs to make sure he sends a thank you card to Deebo Samuel annually.
Burks projects in a very similar way to the NFL level as we have seen from Samuel, and with the creative ways the 49ers have incorporated a player like Samuel in their offense as not only a receiver but as a runner, the possibility of utilizing him in that way is even more appealing.
While Samuel is certainly a rare breed, Burks has done some similar things on a smaller scale.
He’s big, physical, he’s fast, he has great body control, and not only does he have all-around receiver skills, but he can also run with the ball out of the backfield. What is Washington going to do about the QB position to get guys like Burks and Terry McLaurin the ball, though?
