Wilson needs to be like a point guard Dan Leberfeld

Jets rookie quarterback Zach Wilson isn’t going to put extra pressure on himself entering the NFL at a very difficult position.

“I don’t have any pressure on myself to do more than I’m supposed to,” said Wilson.

Wilson’s view of his job is similar to being a basketball point guard.

“Get the ball out of my hands and let the play-makers around me make plays,” Wilson said. “I really don’t need to put more thought into that than.”

And he does have many weapons to work with, including wide receivers Elijah Moore, Denzel Mims and Corey Davis.

But right now, the most important job of the BYU-product is to study hard to get the Jets’ offense down.

“[It’s about] understanding the offense and what I’m supposed to do, simplify my reads and make quick decisions,” Wilson said.
