The New York Jets got creative in scouting their eventual No. 2 overall draft pick, Zach Wilson.
Ahead of the quarterback's pro day on March 26, new Jets head coach Robert Saleh and offensive coordinator Mike LaFleur ran into San Francisco 49ers linebacker and BYU alum Fred Warner. LaFleur and Saleh were both 49ers assistants from 2017-20, and Warner thrived in the latter's defense.
Saleh asked the star linebacker to hug Wilson when meeting him to get a feel for the size of the prospect's upper body, as there were concerns around the NFL regarding his narrow shoulders, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
