BIO: Second team all-conference selection last season after receiving numbers of 44/643/9. Junior and sophomore numbers were 18/389/2 and 19/272/2 respectively. All-academic selection three times in his Pittsburgh career.
POSITIVES: Competitive tight end that excels as a pass-catcher. Fluid releasing off the line, sells his routes and gets separation from defenders. In tune with the quarterback, displays a sense of timing and extends to grab the high throw. Displays the ability to make the reception in the secondary. Plays with leverage, balance and works as a blocker. Good focus in all aspects of the game.
NEGATIVES: Not explosive into blocks, lacks strength at the point of attack and has difficulty taking out defenders. Lacks foot speed and does not out run opponents.
ANALYSIS: Wilson has done a terrific job maximizing all his skills and did so while going unnoticed. Put in a consistent week at the Senior Bowl then performed well at the Combine to improve his stock. May never be a first-string tight end but a pass-catcher brought onto the field during third down or red-zone situations.
