2021 NFL Mock Draft: Year of the Quarterback

2. New York Jets: QB Zach Wilson (BYU)

NFL Comparison: Aaron Rodgers

With the Jets moving on from Sam Darnold this offseason, it is clear they are thinking QB with the No. 2 pick. After two shocking victories down the stretch, the Jets’ “wins” cost them the first overall pick. However, in many years, Wilson would be a contender for the No. 1 spot. Falling into New York’s lap would still be a major boon for the franchise. As we’ve seen in recent years, quarterbacks who can make plays outside of the pocket have had real success in the NFL. Wilson is quite comfortable throwing while on the move. You can use him on bootlegs — or even on draws. Wilson’s playmaking abilities have teams salivating at his potential.
