30. Zach Wilson & Corey Davis — Jets
QB to WR Stats: N/A, first year playing together
Will Zach Wilson lead the Jets back to glory? After years of mediocre play at quarterback, New York swung for the fences by selecting Wilson No. 2 overall in this year’s NFL Draft. Wilson starred at BYU as a junior in 2020, completing 73.5-percent of his passes for nearly 3,700 yards and 33 touchdowns. Impressively, the rocket-armed QB only threw three interceptions and rushed for 10 TD. In Year 1, Wilson will look to connect with former Titan Corey Davis. Expectations were high for Davis coming out of Western Michigan.
Drafted No. 5 overall, Davis had an up-and-down tenure with the Titans. He never became the team’s top wideout, but he also made clear strides in his final season with the team. In 2020, Davis set career-highs with 65 receptions, 984 yards, and five TDs. If Davis can take his game up another level, Wilson will have a good target immediately.

29. Tua Tagovailoa & Jaylen Waddle — Dolphins
QB to WR Stats (at Alabama): 70 receptions, 1,202 yards, 9 TD
The former Alabama Crimson Tide stars are joining forces once again — this time in Miami. After Tua Tagovailoa put together a rather underwhelming rookie season, the Dolphins’ front office opted to reunite Tua with one of his favorite targets from college. Waddle is an explosive runner (ran a 4.37 40-yard dash in high school). He should provide the Dolphins with the deep threat that they have been searching for.
While the two young players were at Alabama together, their connection was evident. As a freshman, Waddle caught 45 passes for a staggering 848 yards and seven touchdowns. Tua struggled to unlock Miami’s passing attack as a rookie, but Waddle should help open up the field and act as a security blanket for the lefty.
