When the New York Jets decided to move on from Sam Darnold and draft Zach Wilson out of BYU, a lot of people were upset.

So much so that every mistake Wilson made was amplified to another level during his rookie campaign. While the 22-year old’s season was far from perfect, there were plenty of flashes that showed a glimpse into the future.
