Zach Wilson of BYU has announced he will enter the 2021 NFL Draft. Wilson had an outstanding season as he was 245-335 for 3,698 yards, 32 touchdowns, and only three interceptions. While most wouldn’t consider Wilson a running quarterback, he also ran for 254 yards and 10 more scores, so he certainly isn’t a statue in the pocket.
The big question now is where Wilson will go in the draft. Most consider him a lock for the first round. Wilson won’t be the first QB taken; we know that honor will go to Trevor Lawrence. Some thought Justin Fields of Ohio State would be a lock for the second QB taken, but he may have been passed now by Wilson. Will the Jets feel the same way and take Wilson as high as the second overall pick? That remains to be seen, but it seems extremely unlikely that Wilson falls outside the top 10.
