4. Zach Wilson
Fans of college football outside the Power 5 might be aghast at seeing Wilson all the way down at No. 4, but this shouldn’t be perceived as a slight. The reality is Wilson is a very good pro prospect. He just lacks either the elite size or athleticism to land in the top three.
Wilson does possess an absolute cannon for an arm. He wasn’t surrounded by a great supporting cast at BYU, but he was still able to sling the ball all over the field with great effectiveness. He gets extra credit for his ability to make accurate throws on the run after being flushed from the pocket.
It’s difficult to watch Wilson’s film and not be reminded of Baker Mayfield. Both quarterbacks lack elite size in the pocket, but still manage to find plenty of lanes that allow them to throw the ball all over the field. It’s worth noting that Wilson is taller than Mayfield which does give him a higher ceiling as a pro.
Wilson absolutely deserves to be selected in the top-10 of this year’s draft, but taking him in the top three or four would be a slight overdraft. He has a chance to be a really good NFL quarterback, but his ceiling isn’t quite as high as three of his peers.
