    NFL Draft comparison Joe Burrow/Russel Wilson

    Draft Bio https://www.profootballnetwork.com/zach-wilson-nfl-draft-player-profile-byu-quarterback/

    Zach Wilson NFL Draft Profile
    • Position: Quarterback
    • School: BYU
    • Year: Junior
    • Height: 6’2 1/8″
    • Weight: 210 pounds
    Tony Pauline’s Zach Wilson Scouting Report
    Positives: Smart, instinctive quarterback whose draft stock has been on a straight rise north the past year. Heady, poised, and does a tremendous job commanding the offense. Patient, buys as much time as necessary and spreads the ball around using all his targets. Natural-looking off the safety and shows incredible football instincts and intellect. Always on the same page as receivers, accurate and also resilient. Displays a sense of timing and does not have receivers waiting for the ball as they exit breaks.

    Senses the rush, remains poised under pressure, and will take a sack or throw the ball away rather than force an errant pass. Puts the ball up and lets receivers compete for the reception. Rebounded well from the few errant passes he threw last season and knows how to ignite his offense. Effectively sets up screen throws and delivers a catchable ball. Easily gets outside the pocket, keeps his eyes downfield, and runs with the ball as a last resort.

    Displays a lot of toughness carrying the ball on designed quarterback runs. Incredibly elusive scrambling away from defenders. Keeps the chains moving and leads the offense down the field.

    Negatives: Lacks great quarterback stature. Does not drive deep throws with speed. Occasionally releases the ball off his back foot. Will struggle withstanding the rush at the next level. Has an injury history, including shoulder surgeries that must be checked out.

    Analysis: Wilson has been the talk of the town at the quarterback position since December, and his legend continues to grow. He possesses outstanding intangibles, and his ability to quickly process information on and off the field is second to none in this year’s draft. He’s more of a system quarterback for a timing offense, but he will struggle in the vertical game. Wilson has a tremendous future at the next level if put in the proper scheme and properly coached.

    The Jets ignore NFL history again.

    No QB that looks like Jane Fonda has ever lifted the VLT.
