Zach Wilson is about as mysterious as an M. Night Shyamalan plot twist. The soon-to-be 22-year old has a gunslinger mentality with the face of a high school senior going to prom. Will the Jets be able to mold him into a future star?
Fields has issues feeling pressure and recognizing the blitz. In his two years with Ohio State, he took 52 sacks in 22 games — or 2.36 per game. In comparison to the other 2021 first-round picks:
Lawrence – 0.91
Zack Wilson – 1.9
Lance – 1.42
Mac Jones – 1.75
Organizations who weren’t ready to develop raw talent saw their early first-round picks fizzle out quickly. Dwayne Haskins, Blake Bortles, and JaMarcus Russell immediately come to mind. However, others like Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, and Cam Newton saw success with organizations dedicated to helping their future stars progress. In 2021, San Francisco is one team in particular who is set up very well to groom their future star.
