"It's all about instant gratification and people want to see results early," Wilson said after practice at the Senior Bowl this week. "I think it's plausible and I think I'm ready. I played in a pretty good conference against some pretty good players, so it's a transition but I think I can play."
Wilson, who officially weighed in at 6-foot-2 218-pounds, described the Senior Bowl experience as a "wild week," as over a hundred NFL scouts, coaches, general managers, and even owners roam the field and players' hotel conducting surveys and interviews. Wilson says he's worn a smile on his face as he attacks the process. "When you go into a situation of uncertainty, I kind of have a little smile on my face because you have to attack everything," he said. "You've got to do the best you can."
One of six quarterbacks playing in this year's game, Wilson has looked to be the most consistent of the group. "We had two pretty good practices and another one today," he said after Wednesday's workout. "It felt like we were kind of getting the hang of things and adapting to a new style and the guys around us."
Wilson is currently projected as a first to second round draft pick.
