New York Jets selected Zach Wilson in the NFL draft

NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Jets selected BYU quarterback Zach Wilson with the No. 2 overall pick in the NFL draft. Wilson had been linked to the Jets for the last few months and New York made him the newest face of a frustrated franchise that has gone 10 seasons without making the playoffs and 52 without reaching the Super Bowl. The Jets also traded up from No. 23 and acquired the No. 14 pick from Minnesota to select USC offensive lineman Alijah Vera-Tucker and give Wilson a protector up front on New York’s offensive line
