    Two things that stood out for me in this article:

    1. The "trick" Saleh pulled by having Warner hug Wilson - very creative on Saleh's part, and also that it showed Wilson to be stouter than people think he is. I think his "baby face" adds to illusion of him being this frail H.S. kid - funny to think of someone who's 6'2"+ and 215 pounds as frail.

    2. The part about Zach's ability to retain info and regurgitate it. I think this trait helps him to be able to recognize situations quickly, and therefore make decisions quickly, leading to that quick release. This is one of the chief things that set him apart for me vs. Lawrence, Fields, et. al.

    He will get bigger after he goes through puberty. :)

    it does say it. his fit in the offense, his quick decision making, his quick release, that he ran something similar in college so is comfortable with the basics of the system, and that he is a film buff with amazing recall "rainman" like and how the ball flies off his hand from any angle.

    in short literally everything I said i seen in the kid on film, the jets scouts seen the same stuff. Looks like a report I wrote about wilson minus the rain man part because us as fans don't have access to that kind of info

    I feel for him, I left school at 16 and five foot in height, grew 7inches (easy) and stoped by 17yo and now I am going in reverse again

    Wilson probably inherited his mom side. I don’t think his body will grow into a linebacker lol

    LIAR! I only missed 2 games this past season. If you weren't such an ass, you'd know that where I was living before I couldn't get DirecTV. I've forgotten more about football than a dumbass like you will ever know.

    And whatever I contribute to this forum is 1000% more than you contribute. You contribute nothing but snarky, negative, insulting posts.

    I think Zack Wilson is about the same size as Mac Jones, if not a touch bigger. They're both 6'-2" and change. I don't know what Mac weighs but it can't be much.

    according to sports reference

    lawerence 6-6 213lb
    jones 6-3 217 lbs
    wilson 6-3 214lbs

    so yeah wilson and jones are about the same size. lawerence is taller and weighs less then both so very lanky

    other QBs of similar size

    watson 6-2 215lbs
    tua 6-0 217lbs
    burrow 6-4 221lbs
    lamar jackson 6-2 212lbs
    murray 5-10 207lbs
    carr 6-3 210lbs
    stafford 6-3 220lbs
    brees 6-0 209lbs

    I fail to see how size is an issue here

    Size is not an issue here ... Wilson may not be huge or even prototypical for the position if you’re saying the prototypical QB these days should be 6’4” and weight 230-240, but he is not tiny...he’s not Kyler Murray....and there are plenty of QBs right about his size. To me it’s not a big issue

    Yeah this has always tripped me out. Wilson is very slightly below the average build for an NFL QB (arguably smack in the middle of average if he can maintain 215-220) but the way people talk about him you'd think he was tiny.

    that is amazing because zach does look smaller than Mac Jones.....maybe it is all that pudge that Mac has that makes him look bigger? or zach's boy band cute face gives the appearance of him being smaller than he actually is?

    i really think it's his face. it makes him look really young and small. he's an average sized QB in the NFL.
