Scouting Report

40 time: 4.45

First-Round

Overview: A former 4-star recruit out of Austin, Texas, Wilson found an immediate role with the Buckeyes. However, in his third and final year, Wilson truly exploded, nearly doubling his 73 catches from his first two seasons with an additional 70 in year three as well as 1,058 yards and 12 touchdowns. Now the star wideout heads to the NFL with expectations of being a first-round pick and a chance to be the first one off the board.

Strengths: If there was a picture of Garrett Wilson for an example under the word, "smooth" in the dictionary, no one would be able to complain. Wilson is a clean route runner, creates separation with ease in any capacity. Coupled with that is his incredible release, swiftly gets going out of his routes, giving him a huge advantage in the quick game. Versatility to succeed inside and out and athleticism to be a big play threat anytime he's targeted.

Weaknesses: Finding weaknesses in Wilson's game can be rather difficult as he's as well-rounded as they come. He could use work at bringing down balls at the high point. Despite his length, Wilson was shaky when it came to going up and getting the football, and with his wingspan he should be able to be more effective as a red zone threat. Again, it's a minor gripe given everything else he offers, but it's something that could be improved upon.

PRO COMP: Calvin Ridley, Falcons -- One of the most well-rounded yet underappreciated wideouts in the league, Ridley has been able to carve out a nice career despite being second fiddle to Julio Jones for most of it. Expect Wilson to have similar production in similar ways.
