BYU QB Wilson aces pro day test … We’ll wait for a definitive assessment from draft analysts with a higher pay grade than ours, but the early reviews of BYU QB Zack Wilson’s pro throwing session earlier today look to be very positive. A few too many balls hit the ground, although there were a number of drops. However, what you saw was elite arm talent. Wilson has a really quick release and easy throwing motion. Indeed, the ball just pops out of his hand and gets to the target on a line. He’s also got that innate ability to get some mustard and accuracy on throws from all angles. Was it as good as Trevor Lawrence’s workout late last month? Again, we’ll leave that to folks with a higher pay grade, but if it wasn’t it wasn’t far behind. Meanwhile, for the record, Wilson measured in at a tad over 6-2 and 214 pounds, but he didn’t run or go thru the other physicals because he’s had a bit of a hamstring issue in recent days and wanted to be 100% for the throwing session.
While Wislon sort of stole the show, OT Brady Christensen had a pretty good day of his own. He measured in at 6-5, 302 pounds, ran a sub-5.0-second 40 with a 4.89 clocking; posted excellent leaps of 34 inches in the vertical and 10-4 in the LJ, while managing 30 reps in the BP. The only negative for Christensen was that his arm length 32.25 inches is somewhat shorter than NFL clubs prefer for the tackle position.
