Skill Set

Wilson has the skill set of an NFL quarterback. He has displayed a strong arm and showed his deep ball accuracy. Wilson showed that he has good ball placement in all areas of the field. there is no doubt that Wilson can spin the ball with the best.

Wilson has the ability to be a dangerous runner with balance and agility. He can reset the pocket, adjust his feet, and make throws.

One NFC scout was on record stating, “Wilson is fun to watch but is he a 1-year flash in the pan? He is a backyard baller who is fun to watch”.

Wilson will need to work on his decision making. He was primarily a one-read quarterback and when his first read was not there had a hard time adjusting. Wilson will need to show that he can still develop and the just from junior to senior season was not a fluke.

Draft Projection

Wilson looks to be almost a lock to be a top-five pick in the draft and can go as high a number two. With Trevor Lawrence as a lock for the first overall pick in the draft, will the New York Jets select him, or trade out and get a king’s ransom for the pick.
