NFL training camp has arrived. And with the NFL season right around the corner, we're bringing you a new series on the site.

Over the course of the next few weeks, I will be taking an in-depth look at the status of each positional group on the roster and giving them a grade relative to other NFL teams.

To start the series, I'll be analyzing the NY Jets' quarterback position.

Who are the NY Jets quarterbacks?

First and foremost is, of course, rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, whom the Jets drafted second overall in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Wilson, a Utah native and nephew of JetBlue founder David Neeleman, was selected to be the franchise quarterback back in April, and his role as starting quarterback will likely begin as soon as possible.

Yet, despite being the obvious choice for starting quarterback this season, the BYU standout entered training camp without a contract.

Fortunately, general manager Joe Douglas and Wilson's camp were able to agree on a deal after the rookie quarterback missed just two practices. Still, those were two too many.

Other than Wilson, the Jets also have Mike White and James Morgan, who have each played just as many NFL games as Zach Wilson: zero.

White, who was picked in the fifth round back in 2018 by the Dallas Cowboys, has actually been a part of the Jets organization since 2019. But the Western Kentucky product has yet to play in an NFL game.

Morgan, one of Douglas' fourth-round draft picks from last year, posted unspectacular stats at FIU against very subpar C-USA opponents, and has also yet to take an NFL snap.
