The game is played on the field. But what we saw from Zack Wilson today, there is no comparison between his workout and Trevor Lawrence’s. It was out of this world awesome. The degree of difficulty of the workout was high and he made so many high level throws.

Well, we'll never forget Zach Wilson's Pro Day.

Text from an NFL scout who was at the BYU pro day:
"Draft starts at 3. Wilson going 2."

Justin Fields is great. Zach Wilson has a hand cannon and is kind of like the college version of Josh Allen, except good. This just happens to be a draft year with three QBs who are worth top-three picks

Watching Zach Wilson now and all the off balance throws. I know it’s ok Air but WOW. He’s special.

Zach Wilson just solidified he will be a top 3 pick

I love Zach Wilson and I think he's going to be a very good NFL QB, but a pro day was always going to be a perfect showcase for him (w/ off-platform throws, etc.) How he handles pressure is going to determine his NFL future

Zach Wilson reinforced today at his Pro Day what NFL scouts/evaluators have been saying for months: He is a great talent with incredible upside.
His tape already revealed that.
And he will be the No. 2 pick in the draft.

Zach Wilson is going to the Jets no matter what
— Gary Sheffield Jr. (@GarysheffieldJr) March 26, 2021
Zach Wilson should sling a few between his legs just to over emphasize him being able to throw from any platform

When watching Zach Wilson's pro day on @nflnetwork, keep this in mind:

-Wilson had only 5 D-1 offers
-Wilson was the 53rd-ranked QB prospect

Can I write the tweets for Zach Wilson’s pro day now?
-electric arm. He’s a mix of Mahomes and Rodgers
-pinpoint accuracy. He completed 67 of 68 passes
-forget his size, he’s a powerful thrower
-wow, look at that 70 yard throw
— Geoff Schwartz (@geoffschwartz) March 26, 2021
Wow. Zach Wilson booting/fading to his left and throwing the other way down field to the far hash. On a dime. Wow
— Crocky (@eric_crocker) March 26, 2021
Some of these Zach Wilson throws are just stupid
— Adam Hoge (@AdamHoge) March 26, 2021
That throw is not a workout-only throw in shorts and a t shirt. Zach Wilson did that on tape, too, multiple times. My goodness.
— Nick Shook (@TheNickShook) March 26, 2021
That last Zach Wilson throw was STOOPID.
— Myles Simmons (@MylesASimmons) March 26, 2021
Overused, but completely deserved, phrases today during Zach Wilson's Pro Day:
Putting on a clinic
Oh my goodness
Look at that
It's on a line
Show and tell
