The NFL Combine 2013 is quickly approaching and one of the biggest questions on the back of scout’s minds will be whether or not there’s a quarterback worthy of being a first-round pick. Normally, the quarterback position is one of the most attractive picks in the first, but no players have stood out like the past such as Andrew Luck or Cam Newton.
However, if you ask Arkansas Razorbacks quarterback Tyler Wilson–he’s worthy of being selected in the first round of this year’s draft.
With all due respect to Wilson, the only way he has any chance of being selected in the first round is if he displays some incredible workouts over the next couple of months that blow scouts out of the water. Wilson has always been praised for his arm strength, but considering other big-name quarterbacks like Geno Smith and Matt Barkley may not even be worthy of a first-round pick–it’s difficult to imagine Wilson would be selected ahead of them.
As bad as it sounds, Wilson is most likely feeling frustration over the fact that his draft stock would have been higher last year if he decided against returning to Arkansas for his senior season. One team will decide to take a risk on Wilson at some point, but it’s safe to say he’ll most likely be selected in the mid rounds instead of the first–that is unless he figures out a way to amaze scouts over the next couple of weeks to prove he’s worthy.
