Bobby Petrino is out at Arkansas according to Fox News. The former head coach was rumored to be having an affair with Jessica Dorrell, an employee of the University of Arkansas.

With the draft coming up, I believe that Tyler Wilson should look at trying to enter the NFL Supplemental Draft.

Tyler Wilson is a 6'3", 230-pound quarterback that I think could be the third best QB in this draft. In 2011, Wilson had 3,638 passing yards with 24 TDs and only six INTs. Though 2011 was Wilson's first full year as a starter, he pushed former starter and third0round pick Ryan Mallett for playing time at Arkansas his sophomore year.

If Wilson entered the supplemental draft, teams wouldn't have to reach for Tannehill, especially the Browns. The Browns would have first dibs (of the QB needy teams: Cleveland, Miami, Kansas City etc.) on Wilson in the Supplemental Draft. They can afford to take BPA and fill their holes. If a starting QB doesn't fall to them they always have Wilson as a trump card.

In the end, with the lack of quality QBs in this draft I don't see Wilson falling below the late second round. Teams with aging or veteran QBs could also look at Wilson as an answer for the future.

When it is all said and done, I could see the Cleveland Browns, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Jacksonville Jaguars, Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, Seattle Seahawks, Arizona Cardinals, New York Jets, Oakland Raiders, Denver Broncos, Green Bay Packers, New England Patriots, and the New York Giants all being interested in him as a starter or future starter. As such I expect they would all bid a second-round pick or better.

Alright fans let me know, do you want Tyler Wilson on your team? If so what would you give for him. If not why not? Thanks for reading.
