Jets Garrett Wilson news conference post draft

The Jets had an eventful first night NFL Draft, grabbing three highly-touted prospects in the first round including Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson at No. 10.

Wilson, 21, will look to bring some much needed weaponry to second-year quarterback Zach Wilson and upgrade an offense that ranked 28th in points scored last season and 26th in total yards gained.

One way to do that is for the incoming rookie to have a good rapport with the team’s other receivers and the Jets have plenty of young ones. Elijah Moore is entering his second season and the duo have already gotten on the right foot.

“He was in the training room getting some work,” Wilson said in a Friday news conference when asked if he had talked to Moore since the draft. “I saw him working through today and got to chop it up for a short bit, talking about how excited we were to get to work and when we are going to start working out and get on the same page.

“He’s a great dude, great player. It’s special seeing him get in and out of his breaks and as a duo I’m excited to bring what I do to the table and learn from with guys like him and Corey Davis. I’m really excited.”

Wilson said that he and Moore had the same trainer at their combines and they got to see each other in Indianapolis this year. However, Garrett has yet to get in contact with his quarterback but is looking forward to creating chemistry and has only great things to say about the gunslinger.

“[Zach Wilson] got a lot of talent. I remember watching his pro day last year and he displayed his arm and it was special to watch,” Wilson said. “Being a receiver who likes to stretch the field, I feel he can put it anywhere and that’s what you look for in a quarterback. I hear the type of person he is as well and I know he has what it takes to be great.”

Zach tweeted his excitement on his new weapon during the first round of the draft, but it won’t be long before the two get to finally meet as training camp will begin this summer.
