All eyes on Zach Wilson as New York Jets continue OTAs (Highlights)

Jets X-Factor has video from the New York Jets’ organized team activities in Florham Park, including some of Zach Wilson’s first throws in green.

Organized team activities have resumed in Florham Park, as members of the New York Jets have taken to the fields of One Jets Drive for late spring practices.

The star attraction was of course Zach Wilson, the team’s new franchise quarterback. Wilson had a mostly successful day during the team’s red zone period, finding Tyler Kroft for a touchdown on the opening down, but another pass deflected into the arms of the wrong Michael CarterMichael Carter II, the cornerback, not the running back.

Wilson did recover with further touchdowns to Elijah Moore and Braxton Berrios. Fringe receivers like Berrios and Vyncint Smith each earned extended opportunities on Wednesday with several regulars and newcomers sitting out. Jamison Crowder did not partake, while Corey Davis and Denzel Mims each sat out due to injuries.

Overall, Wilson had five attempts during the red zone drill. Though he earned three touchdowns, rookie defenders also rose to the occasion. Jason Pinnock had a deflection while free agent Isaiah Dunn tore away another potential touchdown from D.J. Montgomery.

Carter II was one of the biggest stars of Wednesday’s proceedings, working with the starting unit for most of the day.

Later during an 11-on-11 drill, Wilson completed 3-of-3 passes, finding fellow rookies Moore and Carter – the latter being the rusher this time around.

Elsewhere on defense, new acquisition Lamarcus Joyner earned an interception from Mike White.

While Wednesday’s practice was well attended, other notable absences included Marcus Maye, and Quinnen Williams (the latter still working off an injury suffered during an on-field workout on Florham Park). Mekhi Becton was likewise absent, but his fellow blindside blocker Alijah Vera-Tucker was on hand, working with the other offensive linemen.
