After coming over from NC State, Russell Wilson continued his collegiate success at Wisconsin by leading them to their second consecutive Rose Bowl berth. Although they were not victorious, Wilson gave a great performance in the national spotlight with 296 passing yards and two touchdowns.
NFL scouts still aren't sold on Wilson heading into the Senior Bowl, though.
He can give teams a serviceable dual-threat quarterback and a proven leader, who excelled at both NC State and Wisconsin. However, Wilson is the victim of the thought that a dual-threat quarterback doesn't have the passing skills to succeed in the NFL.
If Wilson can connect on his passes and show that he has a strong arm, his stock will rise because there is no doubting the athleticism that Wilson brings to the quarterback position. If he can combine both his passing and athleticism, I expect the NFL scouts will be very impressed.
