Career Stats


Scouting Report/Player Notes

Wilson is looking early on like one of the best quarterback prospects in the entire country heading into 2012. He broke out in 2011 after replacing Ryan Mallett as the starting quarterback for the Razorbacks, and he did not disappoint. He finished the season with 3,638 yards, 24 touchdowns, and only six interceptions. 2012 will be a true test for Wilson, as he will be starting up a new offense and an almost entirely new group of receivers for the 2012 season. What you have to like about Wilson and a big reason why he is considered to be a top 20 prospect heading into this year are his strong arm and his toughness on the field. He is also a pretty solid athlete who could be even more productive in 2012.

2011 Notes:


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


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

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.
