One former Jets quarterback says Zach Wilson reminds him of one other former Jets quarterback.
Showing on the “Pat McAfee Present,” Mark Sanchez had excessive reward for Wilson, who appears more likely to be the following signal-caller for Gang Inexperienced after the crew dealt Sam Darnold to the Panthers on Monday.
“I believe he’s Brett Favre-ish,” Sanchez stated. “He’s the form of man who will full a left-handed move sooner or later in his profession. He would possibly throw one round his again to the fullback. He’s that form of man and it’s so enjoyable to look at. However for a coordinator, you simply need to know what you’re signing up for. As quickly as that ball is snapped, you may not know precisely the place it’s going, however there’s a good probability it’s going to the proper spot.
“He’s not your typical 5 steps and hitch, rhythmic form of man,” Sanchez added. “He likes to throw off platform, in some methods, I really feel possibly a little bit an excessive amount of if you may not want it. When the pocket is clear, I don’t want you to do something particular. Simply give me the routine floor ball and throw it to first base and we’re good.”
Jets GM Joe Douglas did nothing to dispel rampant hypothesis on Tuesday that the Jets deliberate to take Wilson with the No. 2 decide within the 2021 NFL Draft.
He was requested whether or not the Jets plan to take a quarterback with that decide, now that Darnold had been dealt.
“I believe that’s a good evaluation to say,” Douglas stated. “I believe based mostly on the choice we made [Monday], you possibly can form of see the path we’re heading.”
In 12 video games for BYU final yr, Wilson threw for 3,692 yards, 33 touchdowns and three interceptions, together with finishing 73.5 p.c of his passes.
