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.

Off-platform throw from Zach Wilson in Jets Camp

Wilson tossed an off-platform throw down the field to his second-year teammate, Elijah Moore.

The pass reminded people of the bomb Wilson tossed during his Pro Day workout at the BYU Indoor Practice Facility in March 2021.

There were reports that Wilson’s pass was in the air for more than 50 yards.

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.

After the video made the rounds on Twitter and other social media platforms, people were buzzing about Wilson.

Wilson and the Jets kick off their preseason schedule on August 12 when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles.
