After selecting their new franchise quarterback in Zach Wilson, the Jets went full-throttle towards supporting him, essentially spending their next five selections on offense when you include the two third-round picks that they traded in order to move up and select Vera-Tucker.

Following the offensive overhaul, the Jets went on a defensive onslaught, spending their final six selections on defensive players. Throughout this group, the Jets largely focused on adding players who boast versatility and a strong athletic profile, giving Robert Saleh and Jeff Ulbrich some moldable pieces of clay to work with.

Which players will be the hits and misses of the group? Where does everybody fit in on the depth chart? What does this draft tell us about Joe Douglas and Robert Saleh’s vision? Ben Blessington and Michael Nania break it all down on the latest Cool Your Jets podcast.
