New York Jets: Zach Wilson
The New York Jets are only into their second year of the Robert Saleh and Zach Wilson era, so as tough as it may be, patience is the direction for this team.
Wilson was making some wild plays in 2020 at BYU, which ultimately led to him being drafted second overall by the Jets.
He played so well in 2020, in fact, that there were pundits and analysts who wound up liking his projection to the NFL more than Trevor Lawrence.
Unfortunately for both of those guys, they went to tough situations as rookies and didn’t exactly thrive. Wilson certainly flashed moments of brilliance but he also struggled with accuracy and timing, completing under 56 percent of his passes with nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions in 13 games.
In those 13 games, Wilson also took 44 sacks, something the Jets simply cannot have for any sort of sustained offensive success going forward.
They need to see progression from Wilson in 2022 otherwise we might be talking about this team as being in the market for another QB option sooner rather than later.
