The New York Jets have assembled a solid group of wide receivers for Zach Wilson. Do they have the deepest group in the NFL?
With the additions of Corey Davis, Keelan Cole, and Elijah Moore to a unit that already featured Denzel Mims and Jamison Crowder (and let’s not sleep on Braxton Berrios), the New York Jets have assembled a rock-solid wide receiver depth chart for Zach Wilson. Just take a look at how Wilson’s weaponry on the outside compares to the arsenal that Sam Darnold was given entering his rookie season in 2018.
The magic of New York’s current wide receiver depth chart lies in its depth.
Sure, the Jets do not have a wideout who can currently be considered a bona fide star (although Davis was close to one in 2020 while Mims and Moore have the potential to earn that billing down the line), but not many teams have a fifth wide receiver as good as Cole or a sixth wide receiver as good as Berrios. Because of this, when injuries hit, the Jets will experience a far smaller drop-off in wide receiver talent than most other teams will.
When it comes to the talent of their fifth and sixth-best wide receivers, do the Jets have the deepest wide receiver depth chart in the league? Let’s get the answer to that question by comparing the Jets’ depth to that of the other 31 wide receiver groups.
