Zach Wilson might get carded to get a drink when he comes to New York. Heck, he might get carded trying to get into an R-rated movie. The BYU quarterback is expected to be handed the keys to the QB position for the Jets for years to come. He will become the baby face of the franchise in the biggest market on the planet. No pressure, kid.
To talk about the Jets’ likely No. 2 pick, their 23rd pick and who else Joe Douglas, Robert Saleh and company might target in the 2021 NFL Draft, we bring you a special edition of the “Gang’s All Here” podcast with Brian Costello and me, featuring a wide-ranging interview with effervescent former WFAN host and Jets fan, Joe Benigno.
Gang’s All Here Podcast with Jake & Coz:
- ZACH WILSON: Are there concerns with taking him? Did not play a team from a Power 5 conference last season. Only had one strong season at BYU. Has a great arm and watches a lot of tape. Wilson gets handed the keys to the city in Week 1.
- DRAFT PICKS: Who do the Jets take with the 23rd pick? Cornerback and offensive line will be at the top of the list. Linebacker/pass rusher next and then a playmaker. Jets CB depth chart is brutal right now. Might take a kicker in the sixth round since they badly need one.
Joe Benigno Interview:
Former WFAN host, diehard Jets fan
- RETIREMENT: Golf game has gotten better. Doesn’t miss hosting shows, has not listened to WFAN since he left.
- SALEH/DARNOLD/QB/DOUGLAS/JETS: Joe did cartwheels after Robert Saleh hiring, Sam Darnold wasn’t good, didn’t want Justin Fields, need a game breaker like an Alvin Kamara in the draft, likes what Joe Douglas did in free agency. Doesn’t think Jets will win a Super Bowl while he is still alive.
- SINGER: Says if he wasn’t a host on WFAN, he would have tried to become a singer. Loves music.
