Social Media Couldn’t Get Enough Of Throw From Zach Wilson In Jets Camp
SALT LAKE CITY – Zach Wilson has social media buzzing after a throw he made in New York Jets camp.
The second-year quarterback has high expectations coming into this season. A big reason for the lofty expectations is his arm talent.
During his rookie season with the Jets, like any rookie, there was a share of ups and downs. But with the work he is putting in, paired with talent, many around the NFL see a big leap for the former BYU star.
The throw he made on Monday, August 1, at Jets camp exemplifies the heightened expectations for the former No. 2 pick.

Zach Wilson with a gorgeous touchdown. A 70-yard touchdown to Elijah Moore that easily traveled 50-plus in air. His best throw of summer. Not close.

After all the buzz surrounding the initial tweet from the Jets’ official account, they shared another angle of the deep ball from Wilson to Moore. Sure enough, that thing was flying through half the field.
