4. NY Jets wide receivers

Not only have the Jets struggled to find a star at the quarterback position for a long, long time, but they've also failed to surround any of their QBs with talented weapons. That certainly isn't the case for the 2023 group.

Beyond 2022 Offensive Rookie of the Year Garrett Wilson, this team runs deep with Corey Davis, Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman, Randall Cobb, and even Denzel Mims, and with a four-time MVP slinging them the ball, the improvements could be astronomical in 2023.

The talent, the depth, and the QB are all here for the Jets to have one of the best groups in the NFL, and if they can add another top-level name to the unit before the season begins or at the trade deadline, this could statistically be the best wide receiver room the Jets have ever had.

3. NY Jets defensive line

Robert Saleh has had plenty of success in the NFL as a defensive coach, and while he's yet to have that breakout year as a head coach, this team bears the characteristics of those great 49ers and Seahawks teams he's coached before, led by a deep, talented defensive line.

Led by All-Pro Quinnen Williams, this group was in the opposing quarterback's face every game last year, allowing the team to dominate top names such as Aaron Rodgers, Josh Allen, and Russell Wilson, and after a solid addition or two, they should be just as good, if not better in 2023.

Each and every week, the Jets will send six, seven o,r eight defensive linemen out on every defensive possession, and with such depth and talent, it keeps them all fresh, and while we've got them at the No. 3 spot, they may be the unit that has the most effect on any outcome for New York.
