Garrett Wilson WR Ohio State Scouting Report

Position rank: 1
40-yard dash time: 4.43-seconds
Height: 6-0, Weight: 188 lbs
Wilson has been dominating on the football field for quite some time. The No. 2 receiver recruit in the country in the class of 2019, according to 247 Sports' Rankings. As a true freshman, he exploded on film with 30 receptions for 432 yards and five touchdowns. He followed on that impressive debut season with a 43 grabs for 723 yards and six more touchdowns as a 20-year-old sophomore who mostly resided in the slot. If Wilson builds on that he's likely the top WR in this years draft.
Strengths
  • Fluid athlete with explosive burst and speed to stretch the field and breeze past defenders. Has a quick first step and gets to top speed in a hurry.
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
  • Very good hands accepts the ball fluidly on most throws and is ready to make a play afterward. Makes catches in traffic, even going up over taller defenders with vertical and toughness.
  • Has elite balance tight-roping the sideline and in-and-out of his breaks, showing excellent start-stop ability and burst.
  • Has the strong hands any NFL wide receiver coach and quarterback would covet. Tracks the deep ball over either shoulder and brings in passes fluidly without breaking stride downfield.
  • An impressive athlete with very quick acceleration to reach his top speed quickly and stretch the field. Very good body control and smooth movements. Plays fast and explosive.
  • Snatches the ball out of the air and shows the concentration to make acrobatic catches look easy.
  • Has a knack for getting open and is a quarterback's best friend - passers just need to toss the ball in his area and he'll come down with it.
Weaknesses
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
