SALT LAKE CITY – The New York Jets shared a video highlighting some of the best plays from former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson’s rookie season in the NFL.

Gang Green shared a 10-minute highlight video featuring Wilson on the team’s Twitter account on Thursday, January 27.

Wilson recently completed his first season in the league and helped New York to a 4-13 record, a two-win improvement from the 2020 season when Wilson was still at BYU.

Before his time in the NFL, the Corner Canyon High School product rose up draft boards throughout his junior season at BYU.

Wilson helped the Cougars to an 11-1 record during his final season in Provo.

New York acquired Wilson with the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

The first-year quarterback struggled to start the 2021 campaign and suffered a knee injury that caused him to miss a month midway through the season.

After bouncing back from the injury, Wilson saw his play improve down the final stretch of New York’s slate.

Wilson finished the season passing for 2,334 yards, nine touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. He added 185 yards and four touchdowns on the ground.
