2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin
Wilson is a gamer who would be best compared to a player like Jeff Garcia. Wilson can move around with ease, make most every throw in the playbook and has been a gamer throughout his career. He overachieved while at North Carolina State and he continued to succeed while with the Badgers.
He's just one of those players who is good at everything, but excellent at none. He puts a little too much air under his deep throws and they lack velocity. His throwing motion is solid, but with his small stature he very rarely stands in the pocket to deliver his throws. Wilson almost always has to shuffle one way or shuffle the other to find throwing lanes and that's just not going to cut it in the NFL.
Wilson is a competitor and has played multiple sports. He could just as easily opt to give baseball another shot if the NFL doesn't work out for him. In the end, there are a whole lot of second-tier quarterbacks with superior size and arm strength which will likely push Wilson into the middle rounds.
