NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah on Zach Wilson’s “ridiculous” throw
Following BYU’s Pro Day, I asked former NFL scout and current NFL Network analyst Daniel Jeremiah to detail Wilson’s toss.
“He threw, I want to say a deep post kind of back over to the right where all of your body and momentum is floating and drifting left,” Jeremiah said. “For him to be able to get enough power on the ball, to get it over the top, and going back towards the right, deep down the field, and placed it beautifully, it’s just incredibly hard.”

“When you go left and you throw it all the way back to the right as a right-handed quarterback, that’s a whole other level of difficulty,” Jeremiah continued. “To have that type of horsepower and athleticism to be able to pull that off, it’s pretty unique.”
