Who Does Tyler Wilson Compare To?
 
Love this kid. He's got all the tools and he's been through hell and back.

Who is his NFL comparison? I've heard people say Matt Ryan, but I'm not sure that's completey accurate.

Thoughts?

Honestly, maybe Gabbert? That may just be because of the spread offenses and preemptive scrambling though. Maybe he'll turn out better but who knows. Barkley is far more like Matt Ryan.

He doesn't have the size of Gabbert or Ryan. Those guys are like 6'4"/6'5" and really big. Wilson is like 6'1" or 6'2" with a good arm, maybe similar to Christian Ponder or a much shorter Philip Rivers without the funk ass delivery.

Rivers meets Cutler = Tyler Wilson

norcalgsr 10-24-2012 09:58 PM

I've heard him compared to Kurt Warner.

fenikz 10-24-2012 10:10 PM

I can see Warner, he is no where near as frantic as Gabbert and is a much better passer.

TACKLE 10-24-2012 10:14 PM

Brett Favre.

There are so many things wrong with this post I have no idea where to begin. There is nothing similar about them as prospects. Or their college offenses.

I see a Favre or Cutler type QB in him as well.

Landry Jones looks more like Gabbert to me.

He reminds me of Romo as well. To be honest I wouldn't be surprised if the Cowboys drafted him in the first round if he is available where they are picking. Romo is getting a little long in the tooth and the subject of constant criticism for not being able to win in the post season.

Wilson is obviously the QB at Jones Alma mater so I think that could have an impact on how the Cowboys view him. The way this season ends up could be an interesting character study of Tyler Wilson - he seems to be handling the adversity well - showing good leadership traits, playing well and giving 100% effort. Those can only help him going down the road. Jay Cutler was a QB on a losing SEC team and he was still drafted high due to his arm strength and ability to keep his team competitive. As long as Wilson does that I think he deserves a first round grade and he does not come off like a prick like the aforementioned Cutler.

Since his alma matter counts there must be a long list of prospects Dallas has drafted that hail from Arkansas right? No. There's one: Felix Jones. That's right about 250 picks now under his tenure and 1 came from Arkansas. Stop perpetuating statements like that. -_- Bad enough the talking heads do it come draft time lets not fall into the same realm of stupidity.

Next you'll tell me Jerruh loves his skill position guys...

Only 20% of the Cowboys' total draft picks from 1992-2011 are offensive skill position players, the second lowest value in the league.

In the first three rounds of the draft from 1991-2011, the Cowboys spent only 16.1% of their draft picks on skill position players. This is the lowest value in the league.

On topic though :) I see Warner or short, normal delivery Rivers. Not sure he has the crazy quick release to get the Romo comparison.

D-Unit 10-25-2012 02:09 PM

Tyler Wilson = John Elway

ok, not quite... but it made me think.

Ok my bad man. Has he really been in a position to draft a highly ranked Arkansas QB? He could of had Mallet but I think they were still happy with Romo but like I said two years later and Romo is two years older.. I know they need some o-line help especially on the interior but drafting a QB is not completely out of the realm of possibility even if it is to groom him to start in a year or two.

No worries just hate some of the myths that float through the community. I personally don't see us drafting a QB unless Romo takes a sharp dive. We have Orton as a fill-in if that era arrives early. I think it's more likely we'll target a mid or late rounder as a project.

Definitely in the realm of possibilities :D

I actually think this is pretty accurate.

Scott Wright 10-26-2012 07:27 PM

Surprised I didn't see Christian Ponder mentioned but perhaps I missed it.

I think Wilson and Ponder are very similar from both a physical tool and skill set perspective.

toussaud 10-27-2012 09:26 PM

Tony romo is the perfect analogy all the way down to demeanor. not great size, above avg but not great arm, pretty accurate, good not great athlete. is a bit of a gunslinger.

he's more accurate than ponder. much more accurate. that's not a good analogy.

being an arkansas fan i have seen way too much of mr. wilson. the only real flaw in ihs game from my standpoint is he doesn't go through all his progressions. but usually when he wants to get to ball to a certain place, he can do it with the best of him.

now our o line is crappy so that might account for some of him not going through all his reads. if i had a really good o line i don't see wilson not being an above avg starter int he nfl /borderline pro bowl type player. but if he doesn't have a line he will get eaten alive beucase some of the reads he makes now just arne't going to cut it
