32. New York Jets — Zach Wilson & Elijah Moore
It remains to be seen if Zach Wilson is the long-term answer at quarterback for the Jets. New York selected the BYU product second overall, and he struggled mightily out of the gates. Though, the front office didn’t do the greatest job of surrounding him with premier talent. An attempt to boost the receiver corps occurred with one of New York’s two top-10 selection, drafting Ohio State’s Garrett Wilson with the 10th overall pick. Wilson will join a receiver room which includes Corey Davis and Elijah Moore. For 2022, Moore is the one to look out for as Wilson’s top target in Year 2. The 5-foot-10 Moore doesn’t have prototypical size, but he’s excellent at creating space and winning downfield. He’ll look to build upon a 43/538/5 rookie campaign.

31. Jacksonville Jaguars — Trevor Lawrence & Christian Kirk
Getting selected first overall typically comes with the guarantee you’ll be suiting up for a flawed team as a rookie. And, Trevor Lawrence learned that the hard way with the 2021 Jacksonville Jaguars. Not only was his head coach actively sabotaging the squad, the Jags boasted holes all across the roster. Namely at pass catcher where Lawrence’s leading receiver was a 31-year-old Marvin Jones Jr. In an effort to revamp the receiving corps, Jacksonville went on a spending spree this offseason signing former Cardinals WR Christian Kirk to a massive 4-year/$72 million deal. While seen as an overpay by some, Kirk is a quality wideout who produced for an Arizona team which sometimes used him as the third or fourth option. It will be interesting to see Kirk as a go-to target for a sophomore year Lawrence.
