“Wilson may not wow most observers with exceptional arm talent, but he is careful with where he distributes the football and simply knows how to win football games.

One thing I see on film is that he does sometimes struggle to see people, as is the case with shorter quarterbacks. He has improved on this but needs to get better at manipulating the pocket and seeing those throwing lanes.”
