2. The improved NY Jets wide receiver group could be one of the best in the league

In 2021, the Jets fielded a group of wide receivers that were often injured, leading to Zach Wilson struggling with chemistry, but after adding Garrett Wilson in the 2022 draft, this unit is ready to explode.

Second-year player Elijah Moore is primed for a breakout, and with Braxton Berrios, Garrett Wilson, and Corey Davis around, this could be a group that surprises the entire league.

Denzel Mims is also an X-factor, and if the Jets can get any contribution from the much-maligned Baylor product, then this Jets unit should score a lot of points, assuming Zach Wilson can live up to the potential he flashed in 2021.


3. The NY Jets defensive ends are ready to wreak havoc in 2022

The Jets haven’t had a good pass rusher in over a decade, but if Carl Lawson can be anything close to the player he was before his injury, this is a unit that could cause mayhem on opposing QBs in 2022.

The addition of Florida State’s Jermaine Johnson to go along with Bryce Huff, Lawson, and John Franklin-Myers makes this unit very deep, and with Quinnen Williams on the inside, offensive lines will need to be wary.

If this unit can stay healthy and work well in Robert Saleh’s defense, we could be looking at the best Jets unit in 2022. If this team wants to approach anything near the playoffs, they will need to play like the Jets' best unit.
