Can this guy reach the level of the Diggs', Hill's and Jefferson's of the league?  It certainly appears so, especially now that we have a QB who looks like he can consistently get him the ball.

 

I started watching RIGHT after the Keyshawn days...consistently, at least.  I have vague memories of Key and Chrebet making plays as Jets, but for the most part Coles and Santana Moss are the guys I remember when thinking back to when I first started really following the team.  As far as I can remember, Wilson already appears to be the most dangerous/consistent/explosive WR that I can remember in my lifetime.  Is it safe to say he looks like the best WR we've had since Keyshawn?  

the jets have never had anyone as dynamic as him (i was born in 80). even Moss was more of a Ted Ginn + type of a player. Key was good, but more of a possession receiver most of the time. you cant discount the rule changes....but he is better than all of them probably already.

Keyshawn was the 2nd best receiver in the league in 98 and 99.  Right behind randy moss.

Wilson will need to put on some size this offseason.  By the looks of it, he has a chance to be one of the best in the league.

Keyshawn was the 3rd best WR drafted by the Jets in 1998.  Terrance Mathis and Tony Martin were better.  I think Jimmy Smith, Antonio Freeman, Marvin Harrison, would say that overrated possession receiver was as much mouth as production.  Hell, even Eric Moulds would have a pretty solid argument.

The size thing I think is a misconception due to GW appearing to be so thin.  He is listed at 6'0 192 while Justin Jefferson is 6'1 195 and there arent many people saying that JJ is too frail.

GW needs to harness his insane leaping ability and aggressive nature enough to protect himself when possible.   His ability to separate both at the line and down the field, should really put his ceiling as a top 5-7  guy in the league.

I don’t know what they actually play at of course, but Wilson weighed 183 at the combine and Jefferson weighed 202. That’s closer to what their size difference looks like on the field and those are actual measurements.

Yes. He has it all. And he is proving to be a terror in the open field. He's already probably Top 15 in the NFL

I love Wilson but don’t think he’s in Jefferson, Tyreek category …maybe Diggs category thou. 
 

I think he’s most like Jaylen Waddle which is a WR1 on most teams but not in that tier where no matter what you do he’s gunna get his like Tyreek and Jefferson and Cooper Kupp

#88 Al Toon and #13 Don Maynard are the Greatest Jets WRs.

#87 Laverneus Coles was better than #19 Keyshawn - Just as tough, exceptional blocker, MORE clutch, and 10x faster downfield speed that wasn’t exploited by Pop-gun #10 Pennington; Keyshawn had Cannon-armed Vinny.

#89 Cotchery was the last WR that was also a Football player drafted by the Jets in 2004.

 

GARRET WILSON SHALL SURPASS THEM ALL!!!!!

 

***interesting and kinda funny how Jets fan have kinda scrubbed off #17 Braylon Edwards and #10 Santonio Holmes from Jets lore and memory; both were game breakers with clutch game-winning receptions/TDs. 

It’s a crime to leave Wesley Walker off of any Jets best of list

He is faster than Key, but not as physical.  Wilson has moves after the catch and Key used leverage to gain more yardage.  Key was also a monster of a blocker.  Wilson is more explosive after he gets the ball. Both different kinds of players but both excellent.  Key was also super durable.  Would make the catch over the middle in a possession situation and take the big hit.
