Zach Wilson shows some well-deserved love for Alijah Vera-Tucker

On Monday afternoon, the New York Jets showcased rookie guard Alijah Vera-Tucker in a tremendous yet correctly light.

Referencing a Pro Football Focus (PFF) grade that had him as the highest-graded offensive lineman in Week 5 (prior to Monday Night Football), the Jets ensure that the team’s second first-round pick in the 2021 NFL draft received some love.

Not only did the organization and fans agree with the move, but apparently, so did the franchise’s fresh new face, Zach Wilson.

Shortly after the Jets added this to their Instagram Story, Wilson reposted it to his own Instagram Story and added in his own little caption:

“The scary part is he’s getting better each week … imagine week 17,” the BYU product said of his highly-drafted teammate.
