Throughout the 2022 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the New York Jets rank in terms of average, best and worst:

Below you will find a post-Super Bowl 56 roundup for the Jets in our consensus 2022 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 28

Offseason in three or fewer words: Help for Wilson

The Jets can't repeat the sins of previous regimes, which squandered quarterback potential (see: Sam Darnold) by failing to build a strong supporting cast. Zach Wilson, coming off an underwhelming rookie year, needs another front-line wide receiver, not to mention a tight end who can make plays in the passing game. The offensive line also needs a strong run-blocker. With four picks in the top 38, and ample cap room, the Jets should be able to address some of these needs. -- Rich Cimini

NFL.com -- Rank: 27

The Jets cannot repeat the mistakes of their recent past. The team, under different leadership, wasted vital developmental seasons with Sam Darnold by not acting aggressively to add pieces around the young QB. The Jets eventually replaced Darnold with Zach Wilson, who now needs the help Darnold never got in his three years at the Meadowlands. This wish list includes an impact wide receiver, tight end with playmaking ability and perhaps another tackle to address the concerns surrounding former first-round pick Mekhi Becton. Flush with projected cap space and armed with two top-10 picks, GM Joe Douglas has reached his most critical hour.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 30

Their entire offseason has to be about getting Zach Wilson better and improving the supporting cast around him.

USA Today -- Rank: 27

With nearly $50 million in cap space and four of the top 38 draft picks, this has to be the offseason that defines GM Joe Douglas. Right?

The Athletic -- Rank: 28

Count the Jets among the many teams looking to Cincinnati for clues on how to quickly improve after a rough start to a rebuilding process. It was a bad year by nearly every measure for No. 2 pick Zach Wilson and Robert Saleh. As the quarterback and coach both move into their second year together, the Jets need to focus on talent upgrades at receiver and tight end, and at nearly every spot on defense.
