Top rookie draft picks Garrett Wilson and Breece Hall have already brought a lot of excitement to the New York Jets. Both players provide 4.3 speed and big play threat ability to take it the distance anytime they get the football.
They each have great potential over time but also the talent to make an immediate impact on the Jets’ offense. Daniel Jeremiah of NFL Network, who has worked with Jets general manager Joe Douglas, recently shared his thoughts on the first years of Wilson and Hall with a final stat line projection.
Projected stats for Garrett Wilson:
Before his prediction on what Wilson’s final numbers will be, Jeremiah discussed the situation the wide receiver is in. Jeremiah highlighted playing alongside Elijah Moore should help from an attention standpoint in coverage. He also stated that he expects the splash plays that make Wilson unique to be on display like they have been so far this summer.

The stat line Jeremiah had for Wilson was 55 catches, 725 yards, and four touchdowns. It would be a good start in year one for Wilson. Over the 17-game season, Wilson’s per game averages would be over three catches, over 42 yards, and a touchdown roughly every four games.
Projected stats for Breece Hall:
Jeremiah had some glaring things to say about Hall with some eye-popping stats. He said that he believes Hall can be a rookie Pro Bowl player. Jeremiah discussed the complete skill set that Hall has gives him the potential to be a top-five running back in football. He also highlighted the Jets running scheme and having the perfect complement in second-year running back Michael Carter.
The stat projection Hall got from Jeremiah was 250 carries, 1,150 yards (4.6 per rush), with eight touchdowns on the ground. Then, in the passing game, 55 catches, 500 yards, and four touchdowns. To say the least, this would make for a pretty remarkable stat line for the 21-year-old rookie.
