Wilson finished his second season with 1,688 passing yards and a 6:7 TD:INT in nine starts. He added 102 yards and one touchdown on 28 rushing attempts, in addition to catching a two-yard touchdown.
The No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft has a gunslinger's mentality, lots of mobility and the ability to extend plays after the protection breaks down. Is not afraid to make any throw and has pretty good accuracy on intermediate and deep throws. He has to improve his anticipation and avoid playing "hero ball" every time he drops back; a more disciplined approach (and a better offensive line) could help him a lot.
Long Range Potential:
Talented, mistake-prone quarterback with plenty to learn.
