31. Zach Wilson — New York Jets
2021 Stats: 13 games, completed 213-of-383 passes, 2334 yards, 9 TD, 11 INT, 4 rushing TD
In 2021, for the second time in four seasons, the Jets used a top draft selection on a QB. Is it going to work out any better the second time around? A regime change was signaled after the Jets made Robert Saleh their new head coach, and jettisoned former starter Sam Darnold to the Panthers. Now, the franchise is in the hands of the No. 2 pick, Zach Wilson.
Wilson was a one-year wonder at BYU. After struggling with his decision-making and mechanics in ’19, Wilson enjoyed a dominant ’20. The rookie got off to a shaky start in the NFL, but he finished the year by flashing the talent that led to the Jets taking him ahead of other QB prospects such as Trey Lance, Justin Fields, and Mac Jones.
