Arm strength and pocket presence just two reasons why he will be the best of the bunch in 2013.
Despite having a torrid season with the Arizona Razorbacks last season, which is in large part to the scandal involving their head coach Bobby Petrino the Spring before his senior season, Tyler Wilson showed his ability to become a great NFL QB, but was hampered by lack of media attention.
Wilson is projected to be a third round pick in the upcoming draft, which seems incredibly low when you look at his ability to make every throw possible and also playing in a pro style offence.
Wilson has a cannon for an arm and has the belief in his arm strength to put the ball in tight windows when throwing into coverage, something that none of the other rookie QB’s can do.
There is also the incredible accuracy he shows on his short and intermediate passes, having a 62% completion rating during his 2012 year with the Razorbacks, doing this all with a poor receiving corps and a laklustre offensive line.
He has the build and mental attributes for the position. Standing at six feet two, he will be able to stand tall in the pocket and not be outmatched physically by oncoming pass rushers.
The one part of his game that seriously hinders Wilson is his mobility, and with a great emphasis on mobile Quarterbacking recently, this is one of the main reasons why his stock has fallen.
Any team that is smart and patient enough could pick this guy in the third round this year, and whoever does, could have just landed themselves with an absolute steal, and a player who could become the face of a franchise for the next decade.
