NY Jets Position Group No. 2 - Wide Receivers

It's odd to think about how much one year can change. Going into Week 1 of 2020, the Jets' wide receivers consisted of Chris Hogan, Braxton Berrios, and Jamison Crowder as its starters. Now, Crowder and Berrios aren't even high on the depth chart.

Free agency signing Corey Davis was one of the biggest signing the Jets could have made, giving a reliable pair of hands for Zach Wilson to throw to. Keelan Cole was also added for a bit of depth. Denzel Mims is currently healthy for him to take the next step in his development.

On top of all that, the Jets added Ole Miss's Elijah Moore in the second round of the 2021 NFL Draft, a player they firmly believed would have been taken in the first round.

And so far in training camp, Moore has been living up to the hype. His footwork and route running is incredible, and he will only get better.

One thing that Sam Darnold wasn't given in his time with the Jets was an offense that had the potential to explode. Zach Wilson has seemingly come in at the perfect time to develop alongside an offense that can actually help him.

And it isn't as though the receiving team is limited to a few big names showing off at the top. Crowder is still on the roster, as is Berrios who can serve as the team's deep threat to take the top off of defenses.

For the first time in what seems like forever, the Jets are deep at the wide receiver position. If everybody remains healthy and performs to the best of their ability, they could just have one of the best wide receiver rooms in the entire league.
