Zach Wilson has lived in Utah all his life, but New Jersey doesn’t feel that much different for the young Jets quarterback.

Wilson spoke after the Jets held their first open OTA practice on Monday. The Jets’ No. 2 overall pick was asked about some of the differences between living in Utah and New Jersey. Wilson mentioned how the size and feel of New Jersey is similar to that of Utah. Wilson added that New Jersey doesn’t have a lot of traffic, is calm and greener than home.

However, Wilson has noticed that the drivers in the area are relentless behind the wheel.

“There’s definitely some aggressive drivers here, that’s for sure,” Wilson said, per SNY. “I’m getting used tot hat, getting cut off everywhere you go.”

Wilson will get accustomed to New York/New Jersey driving over time, but he’s certainly not alone in the way he feels about it.

Other than that, Wilson has enjoyed life in the metro area thus far despite living thousands of miles from Utah now. He’s been spotted on social media bonding with his fellow rookies and accompanied his offensive linemen when they attended the Islanders playoff game against the Penguins at Nassau Coliseum on Saturday.

“I feel like I’m at home,” Wilson said. “I don’t feel homesick. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything. I’m having a blast, and I think the coaches and the players just make it easy to fit in and get going with everything.”

It won't take much for Zach Wilson to be best No. 2 in Jets history
