The NY Jets are doing their due diligence on the top wide receivers in the 2022 NFL Draft, and that included bringing in both Ohio State wide receivers, Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave, for official pre-draft visits on Monday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Monday that both Wilson and Olave were visiting with the Jets marking the second and third wide receiver prospects the Jets had brought in for official top-30 visits, the other being Arkansas' Treylon Burks.

Each team gets 30 official pre-draft visits and the Jets have already used three of them on some of the top wide receivers in this year's class. Most would assume that Alabama's Jameson Williams and USC's Drake London could be soon to follow.

The Jets aren't being secretive about their interest in adding a wide receiver early in the draft. Wilson and Olave could both be feasible targets in the first round.

The NY Jets could target Garrett Wilson or Chris Olave in the 2022 NFL Draft

The Jets have been active in the wide receiver market this offseason, although it hasn't yielded promising results to this point. They were able to re-sign Braxton Berrios in free agency, but they've swung and missed on multiple trade targets as well.

They were expected to be major players for Calvin Ridley prior to his suspension, they were interested in Amari Cooper's market, and they were notoriously finalists to trade for Tyreek Hill.

To this point, however, they've been unable to land the big fish that they've been searching for. Perhaps that player could come in the draft, though.

With two top-10 picks, the Jets should have their pick of the litter when it comes to this year's wide receiver class. Both Wilson and Olave are seen as first-round prospects, and it's certainly not out of the question that the Jets could target either player with the 10th overall pick.

The Jets have made it clear that they are very, very interested in drafting a wide receiver this year. Wilson and Olave represent intriguing and realistic targets.
