Steve Young may have some really good sources.

The Hall-of-Fame quarterback and ESPN NFL analyst said during a podcast last week that "the Jets have committed to Zach [Wilson]." General manager Joe Douglas didn’t dispute Young’s words on Tuesday.

"Steve’s plugged into BYU pretty well," Douglas said.

Wilson has been long linked to the Jets with the No. 2 pick. This is just another sign that the BYU quarterback likely will be the Jets’ choice in the April 29 draft.
