4. What are the biggest tight end storylines to watch at OTAs and training camp?

All Jets fans should absolutely love the fact that the Jets have mixed good experience with youth in their tight end room, and while we can't wait to see the chemistry with Wilson grow week by week, the biggest story is their young rookie.

Jeremy Ruckert, a Long Island kid, was the perfect choice for the Jets at No. 101 in the 2022 draft. While he won't jump off the screen at you watching his Ohio State tape, there's absolutely nothing that he can't do.

While Ruckert clearly won't be taking over as the starter anytime soon, it's evident that his talents lend themselves to being a starter. That's not going to happen now, but if the Jets can start developing Ruckert for the future, this is a spot they've solidified for years to come.


5. Predictions for the 2022 NY Jets tight end depth chart?

Between all of the Jets' tight ends in 2021, we managed to see just 505 receiving yards and five touchdowns, but with a clean bill of health, we should see much greater production in 2022.

Conklin and Uzomah combined for over 1,100 yards with their respective teams in 2021, and adding in Jeremey Ruckert, we could see at least 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns for this group in 2022.

Whether they reach this statistical output or not isn't the most important thing. As long as this group can consistently produce and help Zach Wilson grow, the offseason work to put this group together will be seen as a massive success.
