In the latest episode of The Jet Press Podcast, Justin Fried and Mike Luciano discuss Zach Wilson's future, mid-round quarterbacks the NY Jets could target, the team's biggest remaining roster needs, and a pair of notable draft prospects in the return of the weekly draft spotlight.

The conversation started with a discussion about Wilson's future in New York. Jets owner Woody Johnson publicly stated on Monday that his team plans to hold on to Wilson if they are unable to find a trade partner.

There have also been conflicting reports regarding Wilson's trade discussions. Have the Jets actually received an offer for Wilson? Is Johnson meddling in the trade process? Would the Jets really hold on to Wilson in 2024? All of that was discussed in detail.

Assuming Wilson is gone, the Jets very well could add a quarterback at some point during the 2024 NFL Draft. There have been rumblings that the Jets are eyeing a QB on Day 3 of the draft.

Justin and Mike take a look at a few potential Day 3 quarterback targets for the Jets including Florida State's Jordan Travis, Tulane's Michael Pratt, Tennessee's Joe Milton, and South Alabama's Carter Bradley.

The Jets still have some notable roster needs to address, even after adding the likes of Tyron Smith and Mike Williams in free agency. That's especially true after the team missed out on signing Jadeveon Clowney on Wednesday.

Which roster needs should the Jets be focusing on leading into the draft? From wide receiver to running back to safety, Justin and Mike broke down all of the team's remaining holes.

Finally, this week saw the return of the weekly draft spotlight. Justin highlighted Notre Dame running back Audric Estime as a potential mid-round target for the Jets while Mike took a closer look at Washington State safety Jaden Hicks.
