Scouting Report
Wilson was a stud his first two seasons at Washington State, topping 1,000 yards as a freshman before catching 82 passes for 1,388 yards and 12 touchdowns as a sophomore and firmly entrenching himself on the radar of NFL teams. Then came early November 2012. Wilson had 813 yards and five TDs through nine games before being suspended for a violation of team rules after reportedly walking out of a physical conditioning session. He then quit the team and wrote a letter alleging abuse by coach Mike Leach, a claim that he later recanted - but not before some damage to his reputation was done. It appears Wilson's relationship with Washington State is still rocky - he'll work out at Eastern Washington's pro day rather than the Cougars' - but he fared well at the NFL combine. Most notable was his performance in the 3-cone drill, where he finished second behind Missouri's T.J. Moe. Though he doesn't have top-end speed - his 40 time was in the middle of the pack - the cones confirm Wilson's ability to accelerate in and out of cuts. He's tall and is an impressive leaper with a solid vertical who possesses excellent body control. Wilson's hands are far from fantastic, though, something he'll need to work on if he wants to be a starting-caliber NFL receiver. He can be pushed around a bit at the line of scrimmage and is still learning proper technique as a blocker. Wilson has a lot to work on to reach his rather impressive ceiling, and that starts with convincing general managers that he's not an off-field problem. If he can do that, he should be drafted as high as the third round. If the questions linger, he might not hear his name called at all.
