Whenever an NFL team drafts players that they want to pair together, the dream is that they'll develop chemistry and help the organization succeed in the long run. That's exactly what was going through the New York Jets' thought process last week when they drafted QB Zach Wilson and WR Elijah Moore with the No. 2 and No. 34 picks, respectively.

Both Wilson and Moore are expected to be an offensive duo that the Jets can roll with for years to come. That's why it was pretty encouraging to hear Moore tell reporters on Friday that Wilson had been calling him every day to build a relationship.

Building chemistry on the field is always important, but it's huge off the field as well.

A few hours after Moore talked about his phone calls with Wilson, the Jets' new duo took the field together. Although the clip is brief, seeing Moore catching passes from Wilson should be enough to get the fanbase pretty excited.

Rome wasn't built in a day, so Jets fans shouldn't imagine a Tom Brady/Randy Moss-like connection right off the bat. However, that doesn't mean that things aren't already looking encouraging for the Jets' future.
