New York Jets enter second year under head coach Robert Saleh and are positioned to have a project that will impact the franchise for years to come. New York has nine total picks in this year’s draft, all in the first five rounds. Half of their picks this year are in the top 70 picks, including two in the first round (4th and 10th).
The Jets drafted the quarterback Zach Wilson second overall last year. Wilson started the year slowly, and a mid-season injury seemed like the worst-case scenario. In the end, Wilson only missed four games and took that time to reassess his play from the first half of the season. After Wilson returned from injurythe rookie QB reduced his turnovers and had nine total touchdowns and just two interceptions in the final seven games of the season.
The Jets have needs in almost every position (and have the draft capital to meet those needs), but building an offense around Wilson and protecting their QB franchise is a must. A star wide receiver is probably at the top of the list and could be used for the fourth overall pick. from Alabama jameson williams or the State of Ohio Garrett Wilson might do the trick.
Between free agency and the draft, the Jets will have plenty of new faces in 2022.
