Countdown to the draft: 2 days to go

The 2022 draft is almost here and we're counting down the days...

With the 2nd pick

Quarterback Zach Wilson is trying to buck the trend after the two previous Jets' picks at 2 overall were disappointments. They took wide receiver Lam Jones in 1980 and running back Blair Thomas in 1990 and both showed early flashes before injuries took their toll.

Two years ago

The jury is still out on the 2020 draft and the final verdict will depend how first round pick Mekhi Becton fares over the next year or two. He's been excellent when healthy, but needs to improve his durability.

Bryce Hall and Braden Mann were good late picks but so far Denzel Mims, Ashtyn Davis, Jabari Zuniga and La'Mical Perine have been disappointing.

In the 2nd round

Great Jets to be drafted in the second round include Rich Caster, Jim Sweeney, David Harris and Mark Gastineau. Elijah Moore will be hoping to join this list.

Number 2s in the draft

Wilson is obviously the highest profile Jet to wear the number 2 jersey, and the only one who was drafted by them.
