Notable Headlines

Wiley was a 3-star recruit out of high school, opting to play college football for Texas. In his first season, he got on the field in 12 games but only caught a single pass for 15 yards. In his 2020 and 2021 seasons, he continued to get out on the field but only managed to catch 9 passes in each of those seasons for a total of 233 yards and 3 TDs. After his limited production, he transferred to TCU where he immediately became an important part of the offense catching 24 passes for 245 yards and 4 TDs. He followed that up as a fifth-year senior with 47 receptions for 520 yards and 8 TDs.

Scouting Report

Positives

Wiley is able to make plays on the balls that come his way. Finds soft spots in zone coverage, and has the size and hands to go up and get the ball in the air. Wiley has good strength, which enables him to break weak tackles and uses any blocks effectively. He is himself a decent blocking talent, and has the speed of mind to see where he needs to be in the second level to make space for others.

Negatives

Doesn’t look very comfortable with the ball in his hands, and can struggle to catch the ball and get back into stride to run effectively again. He can at times struggle to run effectively to create separation from defenders. For his size, he sometimes lacks power to be a top blocking TE.

Pre Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital- Round 4/5

Landing Spots

Wiley should be able to fit into most NFL schemes. Might take some time to get used to playing at the NFL level, but he should be effective as a traditional TE play, with good size for red zone opportunity.
