“Because I think he needs Marshawn Lynch and the defense [to be great] to do what he has done,” the coordinator replied. That same coordinator said his college scouting report on Wilson read like a report would read for a top-tier prospect, but he gave a lower grade overall based on concerns over Wilson’s height. An offensive coach said “the bubble is going to burst” for Wilson if the day comes when the team needs him to throw the ball frequently.
“He is not a 1,” a head coach said. “He cannot win the whole thing. Is that why they are not paying him? I think you could make an argument to put him down as a 3, but I would say he is a 2. The running back and the tight end can help him. If you can make the game one-dimensional for him where he has to be a total pocket passer, it gets tough. Green Bay had four interceptions on him [in the NFC Championship].”
