Ideal Landing Spot: New York Jets

Garrett Wilson is one of the truly elite receivers in the NFL and with the return of Aaron Rodgers, the Jets could use a big, deep threat in the lineup to spread the field.

There is a long list of red flags to fear in his profile, but the veteran presence of Rodgers could be what he needs to keep his head straight.

He has loads of speed and talent but is a massive longshot to succeed at the next level.
