  • Wilson ended the 2016 college season with a PFF overall grade of 81.7 and a receiving grade of 82.0, which ranked No. 22 of 477 wide receivers.
  • Wilson has proved to be a big-play threat, and was dangerous with the ball in his hands in 2016. On his 53 receptions, he averaged 20.2 yards per catch and forced 12 missed tackles, the 13th most among 153 draft-eligible receivers. He ended the season averaging 3.74 yards per route run, No. 2 in the 2018 draft class.
