2012 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Russell Wilson, QB, Wisconsin
Wilson, in his lone season with the Badgers, tossed 33 touchdown passes to only four interceptions. The senior passed for 3,175 yards in this run-first offense.
Expected draft placement
Wilson's lack of size will certainly hurt him, and he will also be a 24-year-old rookie, although the latter point isn't such a big deal in a draft class with a soon-to-be 29-year-old Brandon Weeden.
Expect Wilson to come off the board no earlier than the late second round. He may slide into the mid-fourth, but a strong third-round grade is appropriate for his skill set.
Given his comparisons to Drew Brees, don't be surprised to see the New Orleans Saints take a shot on him. After all, Brees is 33 years old and remains entangled in a contract dispute with the embattled club.
