Scouting Report
Wilson had a substantial drop-off in production from his junior to senior season, but that isn't likely to scare away any NFL teams. As a junior, Wilson passed for 3,638 yards with 24 touchdowns to just six interceptions in 438 attempts. (His interception percentage of 1.4 was the third-lowest among quarterbacks with at least 400 attempts.) He was named Offensive MVP of the Cotton Bowl and became the first player in Arkansas history named first-team all-SEC quarterback. He had high expectations for 2012, but a multitude of issues - the firing of coach Bobby Petrino, the departure of his top two receivers and having to play behind a suspect offensive line - made things tougher as a senior. He passed for 3,387 yards with 21 TDs and 13 picks for a 4-8 team. Still, scouts came away impressed with his arm strength, toughness and footwork. He has excellent accuracy and can fit the ball into tight spaces. His footwork also makes it possible for him to throw on the run to a moving target. Escaping pressure is also one of his strengths, as he was sacked just 14 times despite attempting 401 passes. Although he had a relatively low sack total, he still absorbed a lot of hits and scouts noted how he wasn't afraid to stand in the pocket and take a hit after releasing the ball. Despite possessing a strong arm, his mechanics aren't fluid and he's prone to fumble. Most pro teams feel that with further coaching these issues will no longer be a problem. Although he didn't play up to his expectations as a senior, Wilson is being perceived as a legitimate franchise quarterback, and will likely be selected in one of the first two rounds.
