NY Jets quarterbacks (2):
- Zach Wilson (R), James Morgan
The Jets likely aren't done adding to their quarterback room, but at the moment, they're set to go into the 2021 season with the most inexperienced quarterback depth chart in NFL history.
Second overall pick Zach Wilson will be joined by James Morgan and Mike White — none have which have played in an NFL game before.
Wilson is the obvious starter and the notable name here. Right now, the battle for the backup QB job is between 2020 fourth-round pick James Morgan and practice squad holdover Mike White.
White is getting second-team reps ahead of Morgan, but we'll give the edge to Morgan simply because of his draft status. He was a Joe Douglas guy.
If the Jets add a veteran (Nick Foles?) as many expect them to, Morgan and White's position battle will likely be for which player lands on the practice squad.
There's a small chance the Jets opt to carry three quarterbacks if they acquire a veteran and don't want to risk sneaking Morgan onto their practice squad.
But let's just assume they only carry two quarterbacks like the majority of the NFL.
