Tyler Wilson: Video Highlights for Former Arkansas QB

1 of 8

    Though this year's quarterback draft class is considered to be much weaker as compared to previous years, Tyler Wilson is one of the better prospects in 2013.

    After throwing for 52 touchdowns and more than 7,000 yards in his career at Arkansas, Wilson could be drafted anywhere between the second and fourth rounds.

    Teams like Dallas, Buffalo or the New York Jets may be interested in his services.

    Here, we will take a look at some of Wilson's highlights as a collegiate quarterback. 

Willing to Use His Legs

2 of 8

    Playing against the always-tough LSU Tigers, Tyler Wilson takes off on a running play after not seeing an open receiver downfield (play ends at 1:48).

    Seeing the middle of the field open, Wilson runs for a good gain to set up a 1st-and-goal situation.

    Most see Wilson as a pocket-passer, but he can run with the ball in his hands.

Can Throw on the Run

    Putting his mobility under the microscope again, Wilson shows here that he can be very accurate throwing on the run (plays end at 1:29).

    Moving to either his right or left, Wilson is still able to put the ball where it needs to go.

Stands in the Pocket, Even When a Big Hit Is Coming

    Here against Tulsa, Tyler Wilson takes the snap and identifies his target.

    Knowing he is about to get drilled, he still throws a perfect pass (play ends at 0:20).

    Wilson then pops up and is ready for the next play. One of his strengths is his willingness to take big hits.

Standing in the Face of Pressure, Again

    On this play, Wilson sees the pressure coming right away and gets the ball to the correct receiver (play ends at 3:56).

    Though he takes another big hit, the play still results in positive yardage.

Accuracy

    Another one of Tyler Wilson's strengths is his accuracy on passes.

    Take a look at this throw.

    He puts the ball right where it needs to be in a game against Rutgers, and the result is an 80-yard touchdown (play ends at 7:45).

Reading His Progressions

7 of 8

    On this play against Ole Miss, Tyler Wilson looks around, surveying the field well before coming back to the open receiver.

    His good decision-making skills led to a touchdown, rather than a forced throw or a throw out of the back of the end zone.

Wilson Gets Away from Defenders to Make a Play

8 of 8

    On this play, Tyler Wilson again uses his mobility to get away from two Auburn pass-rushers.

    After a creative escape, Wilson turns to find a wide-open receiver, resulting in a good gain (play ends at 5:31).

    Though he doesn't have the strongest arm in the world, Wilson could compete for a job in the NFL by using a combination of his mobility, toughness and accuracy.
