3. Standout: Garrett Wilson, WR, NY Jets

Garrett Wilson has nothing to prove this summer. The reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year is coming off the most prolific rookie season by any Jets wide receiver in franchise history and is locked in as the team's No. 1 wideout entering 2023.

That doesn't mean Wilson is going to take it easy, however. Far from it, in fact.

Wilson was arguably the most active player on either side of the ball on Wednesday, hauling in a number of catches throughout the day, including a sliding grab on a pass from Zach Wilson.

We've barely even seen Wilson catch passes from Aaron Rodgers to this point, and he's still been the star of the show during OTAs. The former first-round pick seems primed for a monster second season.

The Jets reshaped their wide receiver room this offseason, signing the likes of Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman, and Randall Cobb, but Wilson is no doubt the centerpiece of Gang Green's passing attack.

Wilson hauled in 83 catches for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie, despite being saddled with the worst quarterback play in the NFL. With Rodgers now under center, the sky is the limit for the former Ohio State standout.

Wilson has quickly established himself as one of the stars of this Jets' roster, and he's not resting on his laurels. He's giving 110 percent effort even throughout OTAs.
