2. NY Jets

I've been vocal about my desire for the Jets to seriously explore signing DeAndre Hopkins in free agency, but as it stands now, I'm still comfortable putting them at the No. 2 spot on this list.

Garrett Wilson is a true star wide receiver. While he may not be on the level of Stefon Diggs or Tyreek Hill just yet, he proved last season that it might not be long before he finds himself in that conversation.

Wilson finished his rookie season with 83 catches for 1,103 yards and four touchdowns, despite being saddled with the worst quarterback play in the NFL. He became the first player in franchise history to be named Offensive Rookie of the Year.

The difference between the Jets and Bills is the quality of depth behind their star wide receivers. Allen Lazard, Mecole Hardman, and Corey Davis is a better trio than Gabriel Davis, Trent Sherfield, and Khalil Shakir.

Lazard and Hardman essentially replace Elijah Moore and Braxton Berrios, who the Jets parted ways with this offseason. Davis has been relegated from WR2/WR3 to what looks to be WR4 in this offense. You aren't going to find many WR4s better than him.

The Jets could use an upgrade over Lazard as WR2, which is why a Hopkins signing makes a ton of sense. Still, this Jets wide receiver corps is good enough as it is. It's definitely deserving of the No. 2 spot on this list.
