The New York Jets made a major splash in April by selecting three players in the first round of the NFL draft. In selecting talented cornerback Ahmad “Sauce” Gardener, and Ohio State wide receiver Garrett Wilson in the first 10 picks, the franchise is hoping to have added a couple of offensive and defensive anchors for years to come.
The organization also took defensive end Jermaine Johnson II with the 26th pick and talented tailback Breece Hall early in the second round. These five players will be the focus of 2022 as they look to rebuild Gang Green into a winning program.
New York Jets schedule prediction: 7-10, 4th place in the AFC East
The New York Jets have a lot of young players with serious upside heading into the 2022 season. However, expect there to be a lot of growing pains during the schedule. Especially, in a division with some strong squads in New England and Buffalo.
With that said, look for the team to build momentum late in the season and score some surprise victories in the last few weeks of 2022.
