Good morning, Gang Green Nation! I hope you’re all having a great start to the day. Zach Wilson and Alijah Vera-Tucker are the two newest members of the New York Jets. Wilson to the Jets was an absolute no-brainer. The team did surprise though, trading up to #14 and drafting OG Alijah Vera-Tucker. The Jets gave up their 23rd overall selection and two third-round picks to move up; and they also received a fourth-round pick. Don’t know if I agree with Douglas giving up the capital to select AVT, but the hope now is that he has to hit. Giving up three top-90 selections seems like a bad investment on my end, but that’s why they don’t pay me the big bucks. Hopefully it all pans out and the team can add another potential stud on Day 2. With that, here are your links to the team today.
