6. After adding more talent in the draft, this NY Jets running back room is stacked with potential

As if adding Michael Carter in the 2021 draft wasn’t enough, Joe Douglas backed it up in 2022 by adding Breece Hall making this potentially one of the most formidable 1-2 combinations in the entire NFL.

On top of those two names, the Jets also have Tevin Coleman, meaning this unit can survive injuries. If healthy, we could be looking at one of the most successful running back duos in Jets' history.

Those are lofty expectations, but Hall and Carter are both complete backs with plenty of confidence, and if every other offensive unit plays to their potential, this could be the one that outshines all of the rest.


7. Quarterback is the most important unit for the NY Jets in 2022

While the Jets have improved plenty this offseason, the progression within the upcoming season all rests on the shoulders of No. 2, who showed plenty of potential in an overall disappointing 2021 campaign.

Joe Flacco is back to mentor Zach Wilson, but if the team wants to make the strides that the fans can see happening, the BYU product needs to step up, shut out all the noise, and simply perform.

If Wilson can get anywhere near his potential in 2022, this team has a chance to put up a lot of points and win some games, but until he can prove it on the field, there are still deeper and more proven units on this Jets squad.
