Scouting Report – Cedrick Wilson

In my opinion, he’s the best draft eligible WR who nobody is talking about. In a class when most are focusing on the likes of Courtland Sutton, Calvin Ridley, or James Washington, I believe Cedrick Wilson should be up there with the best of them.

The son of former NFL WR, Cedrick Wilson Sr, Junior has been a stud in his 2 years at Boise State. In particular he has excelled in the red zone. A trait that has translated from his JUCO days. Prior to joining Boise State, he was stationed at Coffeyville CC, where he was a JUCO All-American. Wilson was a QB during his high school career and received very few offers prior to switching positions. During his JUCO career he had 1,674 receiving yards and 27 TDs in his 2 years. He continued to excel once he transferred to Division 1, and had a further 2,640 yards with 18 TDs in his 2 years in Boise. A full breakdown of his prolific career can be seen below:

 

 

Measuring in at 6’3”, 190 pounds, it’s no surprise that Wilson caught 45 TDs during his 4 years in college. His QBs were more than comfortable at chucking the ball up to him and expecting him to dominate the DB.

Brett Rypien developed a solid rapport with Wilson and it’s easy to see why. Not only does he excel at high pointing the ball, but he has fantastic explosion, as well as natural hands and routes. He glides down the field despite his size. DBs have struggled in press coverage because of his routes and strength. If you give him space, he’ll still burn you.

There are numerous times when Wilson makes incredibly difficult plays look easy…

Not only does he excel deep down the field, but he always thrives after the catch. That helps you understand why the guy averages over 19 yards per catch for his BSU career. All these factors play into the fact that he leads all of NCAA receivers in receiving yards, 20+ yard catches (26), and 40+ yard catches (11) in 2017.

The guy is supremely underrated. He’s a true diamond in the rough. I’ve seen some drafts predicting he’ll be a 4th or 5th round pick and that seems so absurd to me. He has an unprecedented toughness, size, speed, hands, routes….What else do you need?



It’s really hard for me to identify any weaknesses here. If forced to give an answer, I’d say that he could perhaps add a little bulk to his frame. He’s not a twig but if he added an extra 10 pounds of muscle when he goes to the NFL, he’d be a force to be reckoned with.

This draft is shaping up to be very deep at WR. Sutton, Ridley, Wilson, ESB, Washington, Kirk, and many others are looking fantastic. Combined with some high upside RBs, we’re looking at another fantastic draft and Wilson should be right there towards the top.
