Arkansas QB Tyler Wilson, a participant in the IMG Academy Combine Training program this year, showed off the big arm that made him one of the Southeastern Conference's premier passers at his pro day on March 15. Wilson gave NFL representatives something exciting to watch. The 6-foot-2 Razorback looked sharper than ever before, completing 77 of 84 passes. Wilson’s accuracy was nearly perfect on all his passes, showing scouts and representatives exactly what they wanted to see. Of the seven incompletions, six were drops.
His pro day workout showed off his ability to put the ball in any window that is given to him. The workout was scripted by Chris Weinke, IMG Academy's Director of Football, whom he has been working with for months before his combine and pro day performances. After his pro day workout, it’s safe to say that his work with the former Heisman trophy winning quarterback has paid off.
Wilson started a majority of his final two years with the Razorbacks, starting all 13 games as a junior, and missing only two games as a senior. In his junior year, he earned First Team All-SEC honors, threw for 3,638 yards, 24 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions. He followed up in his senior year by leading the SEC in yards per game, even beating out Texas A&M’s Heisman trophy winning quarterback, Johnny Manziel.
Wilson is projected to be drafted in the third round of this year’s NFL draft, but likely elevated his draft stock with the display of his strong arm and accuracy.
