Scouting Report
Wilson enters the draft as a major mystery to scouts. He has the physical and athletic tools to be among the best quarterbacks available, but his size is a major concern. That could cause him to fall into the later rounds to a team willing to develop a quarterback that makes more plays outside of the pocket than in it. Wilson has strong mechanics throwing the ball with above-average arm strength and accuracy. He's also considered to be highly intelligent and a leader after starring for Wisconsin last season following three with North Carolina State. He led the nation with a 191.8 rating last season, completing 72.8 percent of his passes for 3,175 yards with 33 touchdowns and four interceptions. He added 338 rushing yards with an average of 4.3 per carry, while scoring six TDs with another coming on one of his three receptions. That athleticism was on display during the combine as Wilson was among the best at his position in the 40-yard dash (4.55 seconds), three-cone drill (6.97) and 20-yard shuttle (4.09). He also had a 34-inch vertical leap and 118-inch broad jump. He was selected by the Colorado Rockies in the 2010 MLB draft and played in the minors as a second baseman in 2011 before choosing football.
