The Jets selected BYU QB Zach Wilson with the 2nd overall pick of the 2021 NFL Draft. Wilson enjoyed a breakout 2020 with 3,692 yards, 33 TDs and 3 INTs across 12 games. He added a 73.5% completion rate while performing as one of the nation’s most accurate QBs. The low level of competition he faced wasn’t ideal, but Wilson (6’3, 212) truly stood out as a special passer. He also rebounded nicely from an injury-riddled 2019 that began with right labrum surgery in January. Now, he heads to a strong fit with the Jets and new OC Mike LaFleur, whose offense will take advantage of Wilson’s movement skills. He’s a heavy favorite to be under center come Week 1 and could provide some spot-start value this season.
Jets QB Zach Wilson — listed at 214 pounds — added weight over the offseason. "He looks beefy -- in a good way," HC Robert Saleh observed. Wilson took 44 sacks last year, 3rd-most league wide. So the added weight could be particularly helpful for his season-long durability. A much-improved supporting cast makes Wilson an enticing QB2 target.
