Jets fans slam NFL analysts for passing over Zach Wilson in the QB re-draft.

Let’s get this party started.

We’re already seeing rookie quarterback re-drafts left and right after only ten weeks in the NFL.

I’d like to state right away that it’s important not to put too much faith in hot takes like these, which often involve a lot of hindsight and a lack of bravery on the part of analysts who were bullish on the exact same prospects months before.

The following was the order this time:

Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence (same ranking), Ohio State’s Justin Fields (up two spots), Alabama’s Mac Jones (up two spots), North Dakota State’s Trey Lance (down one spot), and BYU’s Zach Wilson (down three spots).

The second overall pick has already dropped to fifth on the board, falling below the rookie for the division rival New England Patriots in a Jet-like turn of events.

“Oh the pain!” would ex-WFAN radio host Joe Benigno exclaim.

However, based on the analysis, it’s reasonable to question how fair these rankings were.

Despite a rocky start to his career with the Jaguars, Lawrence has not been injured.

“His abilities are indisputable.

‘Anyone in Jacksonville would be struggling right now,’ one evaluator said.
