Asked what he brings to the table, Wilson said he models his game after Stevie Johnson, Davante Adams and Cooper Kupp. If he produces like any of those players, he will be in good company with the Jets.
“I’ve always kind of modeled my game after Stevie Johnson. He played with the Bills back in the day and he kind of had a basketball background. He was elusive and I like the way he played the game,” Wilson said. “There’s so many good receivers in the league, you try to take something from all their games. Cooper Kupp, Davante Adams, they’ve all got different things that they bring to the table. Being a young dude that wants to be as good as I can be, I’m trying to take something from all their games, for sure.”
