NFL Draft 2013: Tyler Wilson is ‘Safest Bet of All Quarterbacks’ in This Year’s Class


There are a lot of questions surrounding the quarterbacks in the 2013 NFL Draft class, but the closer we get to draft day the more we are hearing about how teams and scouts feel about the top signal-callers available. We have all discussed the potential of Geno Smith and Matt Barkley, but one name that has continuously gone under the radar is former Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson. 

Wilson is a polished signal-caller with experience in college football’s toughest conference, and there are some that believe he could be the most talented passer of the bunch.

According to the Chicago Tribune’s Dan Pompei, one NFL scout called Wilson the “safest bet of all quarterbacks” in this year’s class.

“I think he’s the safest bet of all of them,” one scout said per Pompei. “He’s the one guy who reads defenses.”

With his footwork and quick release, Wilson is an intriguing prospect. He has drawn a lot of comparisons to Dallas Cowboys signal-caller Tony Romo because of his athleticism and escapability. Wilson certainly has the tools to develop in to an NFL starter.

When the draft rolls around, Wilson should be selected in the second-round.

Interestingly enough, one of the teams that reportedly loves Wilson is those Dallas Cowboys.
