Douglas said that picking a quarterback at No. 2 appears to bethe direction we’re headingbut would not say for sure if they were locked in on BYU’s Zach Wilson.

Darnold was drafted by the Jets with the No. 3 overall pick back in 2018. In 12 games last season, Darnold threw for 2,208 yards with nine touchdowns and 11 onderskep, and he had the NFL’s lowest passer rating. The Jets finished with a 2-14 opneem.
