In the last ten years the New York Jets have had only one winning season. You have to look a few years past that to get to their last playoff win.
Although they have had their struggles as of late they have had some promising moments. Elijah Moore, the Jets 2021 second round draft pick, posted a stat line of 43 receptions, 538 receiving yards, and 5 receiving touchdowns. All of which ranked 5ht, 8th, and 3rd in New York Jets rookie history.
The epitome of Jets rookie excellence at the receiver position is three time Pro Bowler Keyshawn Johnson. Atop the list in both rookie receiving yards and touchdowns, and second amongst all Jets rookie receivers in rookie season receptions. Elijah Moore’s rookie season did not stack up to the production of Johnson in his rookie season. Garrett Wilson has the opportunity to change the way the rankings look.
Garrett Wilson is a slightly bigger and slightly faster version of Moore.
The Jets are also a slightly better version of themselves last year. If basing everything on measurables, the production of Wilson should be slightly better than that of Moore from this previous season.
Is slightly better, better than any other rookie wide receiver in New York Jet history?
