Tyler Wilson Scouting Report QB Arkansas

 

The Thing I like most about Tyler Wilson is that He's tough as nails (picture source zimbio.com)

This is our Tyler Wilson scouting report. Wilson is a talented QB prospect that plays for the Arkansas Razorbacks. Wilson has a N.F.L. level skill set, but he does not seem likely to declare for the N.F.L. draft in 2012. Still he is draft eligible which is why I have started a page for him.

For all of our other scouting reports go to our scouting report page.

Even though Wilson is a redshirt Junior he doesn’t have a ton of experience (all of this year and a few games each of the other years)  because he was stuck behind Ryan Mallett and received a medical hardship in 2008.

Expect this page to be udpated a lot next year, or later this year if he declares for the 2012 N.F.L. Draft

Measurables

Stats:

Passing
G Att Comp Pct. Yards Yards/Att TD Int Rating Att/G Yards/G
6 51 34 66.7 453 8.9 4 3 155.40 8.5 75.5

2011:

Yards/Att TD Int Rating Att/G Yards/G
12 407 257 63.1 3422 8.4 22 6 148.67 33.9 285.2

Pros:

Has a very good arm that can make all of the throws in the N.F.L….has plus ball placement and can put the ball into tight windows…mobile in the pocket, doesn’t rush for a lot of yards…Very tough quarterback, he gets knocked around but keeps throwing…Has pretty good accuracy…Has franchise Quarterback potential

Cons:

Needs to improve his mechanics a bit when he’s rolling out of the pocket…needs to improve his pocket presence and decision making (bit of a gun slinger and doesn’t get rid off the ball well enough against the blitz)…recieved a medical hardship in 2008

Player comparison: Jay Cutler, QB, Chicago Bears

I think Jay Cutler has a better arm than Wilson, but they kind of look similar on the field.

Thoughts:

If Tyler Wilson comes back next season has a great opportunity to vault himself into the first round and may even be the first quarterback taken if Robert Griffin iii, Matt Barkley, Landry Jones, and Andrew Luck all declare for the draft. He will be competing with Tennessee’s Tyler Bray as the first signal caller drafted in the 2013 N.F.L. draft. Wilson needs some refinement, he doesn’t maintain consistent mechanics when he’s on the move, but he has a  really plus arm to make all the throws. He also does a good job of making plays with pressure in his face and is tough as nails.
