SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson hit the red carpet for some celebrity treatment only hours before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft.

The first round of the NFL Draft begins on Thursday, April 28 at 6 p.m. (MDT). It is being hosted in Cleveland, Ohio.

With two hours until the Jacksonville Jaguars become the first team on the clock, Wilson hit the red carpet for photos and interviews.

“I won’t believe it until it happens,” Wilson answered when asked about landing with the New York Jets.

As he walked down the carpet, the former BYU quarterback sported a Giorgio Armani suit.

Before the draft, Wilson was accompanied by his parents, Mike and Lisa.

“It’s about that time,” Mike Wilson tweeted alongside a photo of himself, his wife, and the future NFL player.

Wilson’s family wasn’t the only support the quarterback had in Cleveland. Some of the quarterback’s BYU coaches, including Kalani Sitake, joined Wilson at the NFL Draft.
