After being selected second overall in the 2021 NFL Draft, all eyes were on Zach Wilson during Jets rookie mini camp last week. Fellow rookie Michael Carter, a RB out of North Carolina, gave Zach Wilson a glowing review after the first week of practice. You can listen to his comments below.

Carter continued, explaining his opinion of Wilson is not a knock on Trevor Lawrence. "All I'm saying, some people were arguing for Zach [to be the number one pick] and I agree with them. Cause I feel like Zach is a great quarterback as well, and I can't wait to play with him."

Carter was impressed with various aspects of Wilson's game, but it was the mental side of the game that left a lasting impression. "He picks up on stuff really fast," Carter said. "If you teach him something, he is going to remember it."
