New Jets head coach Robert Saleh sits down with Robert Mays for the latest episode of The Athletic’s Offseason Interview Series. They discuss Saleh’s roster collaboration with GM Joe Douglas, the process of assembling a coaching staff and what stood out about Zach Wilson before the draft....
Worth a listen, Zach talk starts around the 14 min mark -
— They didn't really start evaluating QBs until mid Feb
— Decisive moment was in selecting Zach was over Zoom meetings - the questions he asked, what he sees on the field, his recall, etc.
— Mentioned that Fred Warner was the best/smartest interview he's ever had on the defensive side of the ball
— His real first interviews with a QB & was with Greg Knapp the Jets QB coach (coached Steve Young/Matt Ryan/Peyton Manning) - he asked Knapp after the Zach zoom mtg - "Does it get any better than that?" - Knapp said "That was ridiculous."
