Per Chris Mortensen ESPN
Evaluators loved his football smarts, how he played under pressure, accuracy and athleticism. The height issue was brought up every time. A few evaluators believed he will become the new exception to the height rule. Big hands, long arms and has a 6th sense that execs kept mentioning can't be measured.
He will enter the NFL with 50 career college starts under his belt. In three seasons as a starter at NC State and one at Wisconsin, he threw for 11,720 yards with 109 touchdowns and just 30 interceptions. He also rushed for 1,421 yards and 23 scores.
Wilson was drafted by the Rockies in the fourth round with the 140th pick two years ago
