FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Zach Wilson has been knocked around, tossed to the turf, made a few costly mistakes and been booed by his own team's fans.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Top two overall draft picks Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are set to step right in and become starting NFL quarterbacks in Week 1 of their rookie season.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Zach Wilson became a college star and top NFL prospect for all the things everyone saw each week on the field at BYU.
It was a lengthy list that seemed to grow with every performance: strong arm, wicked passing angles, a knack for turning nothing into big plays, and cool confidence.

It's a three-QB race to replace Wilson, who was selected No.
