College Career

Wilson stepped up in 2020 to be pushed into contention at the top of the NFL Draft. In his 2020 season, he was extremely accurate, and had the ability to extend the play with his legs as the play developed downfield.

Scouting Report

Positives:

Wilson has great footwork, and a great arm which enables him to connect passes deep downfield. His arm is also extremely accurate, with accuracy on any depth of pass he attempts. Able to place the ball where his receiver can make a play on the ball, either right on the sideline or in stride to make big plays.

Has great awareness, and able to feel the pocket. If he is forced to move, has great speed to out run first level defenders, and evade tackles

Negatives:

Wilson has suffered injury during his time at college, and hasn’t been tested in the way that other prospects have. Equally, Wilson has at times tried to force plays that he might not be as successful with at the next level

Pre Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital:

Round 1. (Pick 2? New York here we come)

Landing Spots:

At the moment, it seems that all signs are pointing to New York. The team have some solid pieces on the offensive line, as well as players that have shown ability to get free from defenders. In the right scheme, could be a great fantasy asset for years
