Analysis

What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about ZACH WILSON before he made the New York Jets' Depth Chart: BYU, 6021 214 4.75. Junior entry, three-year starter, Draper, UT. Showed flashes in both 2018 and 2019, but truly broke onto the national scene in 2020 as he led BYU to an 11-1 record. Wilson is a new age quarterback who is becoming increasingly popular. Lacks traditional drop back and throwing mechanics, but has the ability to make off-schedule throws with different arm angles appear natural and easy. He is accurate and rarely turned the ball over. With that said, he was 2-4 against top 25 teams and this year’s schedule against non-power five programs lacked featured NFL talent. He is going to be a boom or bust, one that really only had one very strong season in a year where Covid- 19 impacted a lot of it. Best suited for a year of backup duty before being given the keys to the bus. High level arm talent on all levels. Has a quick, smooth, but violent release that shoots the ball out in a hurry. Tough as nails, will not be deterred by hits. Excellent deep ball placement. Maintains accuracy on the move. Can go through reads on time, won’t delay but also won’t rush. Has a solid internal clock in the pocket. Can see pressure coming from his blind side, understands how to diagnose blitz-intentions pre-snap and will seamlessly adjust. Brave and courageous when it comes to decision making. Truly trusts his arm talent. Can adjust trajectory from any arm angle no matter where his base is. One of the few quarterbacks who maintains accuracy at all times. Plays in a spread formation where the plays are signaled in. Rarely takes a snap under center. Poised with pinpoint accuracy and a sudden release from the pocket. Sidesteps rush. A good athlete who can run for positive yards when needed. Will stay in the pocket until the last second trying to extend the play. Has made several clutch passes over his career but has not always looked textbook doing so. Will throw the ball across his body and off one foot. Can hit the backside curl between the receiver’s numbers. Sees the field even when he’s under duress. Hangs in the pocket and moves up as needed. Instinctively moves away from the rush and extends the play. Arm is good enough to make plays in the red zone when the window of opportunity is small. Can gun the ball into spots with a flick of a wrist. Tough kid who will make a flat foot throw with a defender in his face and complete the pass. Eyes always down the field. If you Google off-platform throws, you see Patrick Mahomes and next to him is Zach Wilson. The BYU passer uses his tight ends as security blankets. He hits them in the flat, seams, and check downs. Generally makes good decisions when and when not to throw the ball away. Reportedly passed all the Combine physical rechecks on his shoulders, but it still is a concern for long term durability. The gunslinger had surgery in 2019 to repair a torn left shoulder labrum. He also had surgery in his right throwing shoulder in high school. In addition he missed four games in 2019 with thumb surgery and four games in 2018. Footwork gets lazy at times. Needs to consistently hammer away at proper lower body mechanics. Fringe discipline across the board when it comes to technique and ball handling. Too much splash play approach in his game. Needs to take what the defense gives him. 2020 stats: 247/ 336, 3692 yds, 73.5%, 33 TD, 3 INT, 254 yd rushing, 10 TD, 196.43 QB rating. First round. (A-30 5/8, H-9 1/2, SS-NA, VJ-NA).Louisville, 6073 364 5.12. Junior entry, three-year starter, Highland Springs, VA. First-team All ACC in 2019 as the team’s starting left tackle. Has played on both sides of the line and could project to either in the NFL. His game depends on the elite length and upper body explosion that can take over a one-on-one battle right away. A rare physical force who gets movement at both the point of attack and in space the second he comes in contact with the defender. His issues are partially technique-based which can be corrected but there are also movement issues. It can be hard for a player of his height to adjust with balance and precision and even his length can’t hide those issues in pass protection. His sometimes-inaccurate hands aren’t backed up by other physical attributes and techniques which gives him a rather large buyer-beware label. Boom or bust prospect who turns 21 just  days prior to the draft. A mountain among hills. Stands tall, wide, and thick. Will likely be the biggest player on the field at all times. Explosive hands that will send defenders flying. Has created a highlight reel minutes long that consists of him putting defenders on the ground. A physical force that creates rare push upon contact. Effective both in line and in space as a run blocker. Will move downfield and look for work. Swallows a lot of space with just a few strides. Pushes himself up the edge well in pass protection. Can outreach anyone and it is over for the defender if he gets his hands inside first. Feet are light enough to protect the edge and his size can make up for some mistakes. Gets sloppy out of his stance. Has the occasional hitch that stems from a poor three-point stance. Struggles to get and keep his chest up, which puts him at a slight initial disadvantage. Success rate as a cut blocker is very low. Needs more attention and consistency when it comes to knee bend and leverage at his size. Body language, control, and conditioning are all issues. OSR:3/41. First round. (A-35 5/8, H-10 3/4, BP-23, 10-1.78).Louisville, 6073 364 5.12. Junior entry, three-year starter, Highland Springs, VA. First-team All ACC in 2019 as the team’s starting left tackle.
