4. Can the NY Jets find offensive line consistency?

The Jets have struggled to find any semblance of offensive line consistency in recent years. But that needs to change in 2021, especially with a rookie quarterback entering the fold.

The moves they made in the offseason seem to suggest that we could see a much-improved line this season. The Jets traded up nine spots in the 2021 NFL Draft to select star USC guard Alijah Vera-Tucker and later signed longtime Washington Football Team right tackle Morgan Moses.

The expectation is that both players will not only start, but make a significant impact on game day.

The Jets have the depth to manage at least one or two injuries, but training camp will be the time where the starting five really begins to start bonding on the field now that players are in pads.

3. Can Elijah Moore steal the show again?

No player turned more heads during spring practices than Elijah Moore. And it isn't hard to see why the Jets believe they have the next superstar receiver on their hands.

Moore was the star of the show during OTAs and minicamp, but will he be able to carry over that same momentum into the summer? That remains to be seen.

The former Ole Miss star will be competing for playing time in a suddenly crowded wide receiver room. His primary competition will come in the form of veteran Jamison Crowder.

But with another strong showing this spring, Moore will make it very difficult to keep him off the field.
