Joe Douglas and the New York Jets, ready to select No. 2 in the 2021 NFL draft, should be thrilled about Zach Wilson’s potential.

It’s easy to label Zach Wilson as a bust candidate. It doesn’t exactly take a brave soul to proclaim Wilson as the next NFL quarterback bust. That should be noted at the top.

But while many New York Jets fans try to lump Wilson in with a host of former gunslinging prospects who have already failed, the tough thing to do is actually break the tape down.

Where is the kid the strongest? We know he can make all the throws required at the next level, but is his arm legitimate enough, especially down the field?

How does he handle pressure, something he rarely had to deal with this past season at 2020? How ridiculous are his hands, feet and lightning-fast release, something that’s as good a trait as possible in this new three-step NFL?


Blewett’s Blitz dives into Zach Wilson’s BYU tape in order to get us closer to answers for all those questions (a near-two-hour film breakdown).
