1. Zach Wilson struggles with consistency

Once again, it's important to take everything that happens during OTAs with a significant grain of salt. Players are still shaking off the rust and the drills they're running hardly resemble an actual NFL game.

Now, with that out of the way, let's talk a little about Zach Wilson. Wilson wasn't very good in the four OTA sessions open to the media.

That isn't to say that he didn't have his fair share of highlights — only that those highlights were overshadowed by what could best be described as inconsistent play.

For the better part of the four practices, Wilson struggled with his accuracy and looked rather indecisive at times. The combination of the two resulted in three interceptions over the final two practices and a few almost turnovers.

There were times when Wilson looked comfortable and confident in the pocket. He connected with wide receiver D.J. Montgomery on a beautifully thrown deep ball this past Wednesday. He fired a laser over the middle of the field to rookie wideout Garrett Wilson who unfortunately dropped the ball as he fell to the turf.

Wilson had his moments, but as a whole, his play was mostly erratic and inconsistent.

This shouldn't necessarily be a cause for concern just yet. It is only June, after all. This is the time to iron out all the kinks, familiarize yourself with your new teammates, and get back into the swing of things.

The real concern will come if Wilson doesn't show progress in training camp and the preseason. For now, everything should be business as usual for the Jets.

But whenever a young, unproven QB struggles, even if it's just during OTAs, it has to be noted.
