New prediction features a sizable leap for Zach Wilson

As Zach Wilson enters his second season as the New York Jets quarterback, big jumps in both the win column and the stat sheet are expected from the signal-caller. Many predictions are already being made for Wilson in various statistical categories, including passing yards, completion percentage, touchdown-to-interception ratio, and even rushing production.

Jaime Eisner, COO of The Draft Network, recently shared his projections for quarterbacks throughout the NFL, including Wilson.

Through the air, Eisner predicts that Wilson will accumulate season stats of 3,847 yards, 20 touchdowns, and 15 interceptions. On the ground, Eisner predicted 250 yards and four touchdowns for Wilson.

In total, this puts Wilson at 4,097 yards and 24 touchdowns.

Over 17 total starts, these numbers would give Wilson per-game averages of 226.3 passing yards, 1.2 passing touchdowns, 0.9 interceptions, and 14.7 rushing yards.

Overall, this is a fair expectation. The touchdown-to-interception ratio is the number that may have the greatest chance of turning out better than Eisner’s prediction. Looking back on Wilson’s rookie year, he threw 11 interceptions in 13 games. It is well documented that he did not throw any over the final five games of the season. Also, four of the 11 intercepted passes came in one game against a Bill Belichick-led defense in his second NFL start.

Considering his continuity in the scheme with offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur, Wilson should be in a more confident place mentally. Pair that up with the Jets’ drastic improvement of talent both up front and at the skill positions, and much better production from Wilson is a reasonable expectation.

In terms of a dream or best-case scenario, a final passing stat-line for Wilson could include over 4,000 yards passing, roughly 30 touchdowns to 10 interceptions, and a completion percentage of better than 65 percent. Add in any rushing production, which is fair to expect with his skill set, and Wilson could be highly productive in year two.

If Wilson can be consistent through the air and on the ground, then he will greatly improve in the most important stat: the win column.
