Zach Wilson: It’s going to be a process

Zach Wilson signed his first NFL contract on Thursday, which meant the quarterback was able to join the Jets for his first NFL training camp practice on Friday.

Based on word from reporters at the practice, it looked like his first day. They noted that Wilson had a shaky time during full team drills against the Jets defense and Wilson said after the session that it had been a while since he’d faced “live bullets” on the field.

“It’s going to be a process,” Wilson said, via DJ Bien-Amie of the New York Daily News.

It was also Wilson’s first practice since the death of pass game specialist Greg Knapp and Knapp’s loss was an unexpected tweak to the process of getting Wilson ready for Week 1 of the regular season. The process will continue and getting it right will be an essential part of the next month for the Jets.

  1. Wilson wasn’t on anybody’s radar after the 2019 season. The pandemic through BYU’s schedule into flux and to play games they have to play opponents that wouldn’t even compete in MAC. After playing an very soft schedule vs outmatched opponents he is the #2 pick and some are even saying he is as good as a guy who played in the ACC with 3 straight playoffs and won a title.

    You’re on the Jets, Zach. It will DEFINITELY be a process.


    A process suggests some sort of change taking place. More likely he’ll stink for 3 years until they decide its time to rinse and repeat.

  3. Losing Knapp is a tough break for the Jets offense as a whole, but it shouldn’t stunt Wilson’s growth. Its hard to see this team hitting the ground running. I expect them to slowly get better as the season goes along and start playing some good football towards the end of this year and into next year.
