Garrett Wilson hangs out with potential NY Jets WR draft pick

Will the New York Jets draft a wide receiver at No. 10? Or even higher?

That’s part of the great Jets draft debate that will likely rage until April 25. The Jets can trade up, trade down, take a tackle, take a receiver, take Brock Bowers, or even go in a different direction with their first-round pick.

A wild card for the Jets at No. 10 is Rome Odunze, the Washington receiver widely projected to be off the board before then. Odunze’s freakish ball-tracking and contested-catch ability have him ranked as a consensus top-three receiver in the draft. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com has Odunze ranked as the third-best overall prospect behind only Caleb Williams and Marvin Harrison Jr.

Therefore, when Jets receiver Garrett Wilson got together with Odunze, it raised some eyebrows.

Before the Jets signed Mike Williams, adding Odunze would have made more sense for them. They needed a big vertical threat who could catch 50-50 balls. However, Odunze profiles as a very similar player to Williams. Of course, Williams is only on a one-year deal, which would not preclude the Jets from taking Odunze. In such a scenario, Garrett Wilson would move to the slot, where he is a lethal weapon.

If the Jets wind up with any of the top three receivers — Harrison Jr., Malik Nabers, or Odunze — their receiving trio would instantly become the best in the NFL. Though it seems likely that a trade-up would be necessary to acquire any of the three, perhaps Odunze falls into the Jets’ lap.

They’d be hard-pressed not to take him if he’s there.
