Flush with a new coaching staff, including offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, the Jets hope Wilson can make an impact out of the gate. After all, there’s a reason they took the talented former BYU standout No. 2 overall in the 2021 NFL draft.
If reports from Jets offseason activities are an indication, Wilson should be more than up to the task.
“Wilson looks so comfortable in Mike LaFleur’s offense. He is accurate, aggressive and regularly in control. There was definitely a hiccup, but Wilson never looked like an out-of-place rookie. ” Connor Hughes of The Athletic recently remarked.
The comparison here was with Darnolds first offseason as the Jets’ quarterback after they made him the No. 3 pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.
“There is a strong difference between what he does and what Darnold did in their first offseasons,” Hughes wrote.
These are apparently some eye-catching things right there, and it could lead to a strong NFL starting season for Zach Wilson after he dominated minor competition with BYU in 2020.
