he measured 5-10 1/2 Monday inside a ballroom filled with scouts, coaches and media at the Mobile Convention Center.


“I think I’ve shown I can play at a very high level. I play tall. I play fast. I have a high, quick release,” Wilson said. “You see guys being very successful in the NFL right now and in the past who’ve done it. It has no effect on me at all. I played behind the fourth-biggest offensive line in the country all season, and had a great season doing it.”

With just three weeks to learn Wisconsin’s offense, Wilson passed for 3,175 yards and 33 touchdowns, with just four interceptions as the Badgers won the Big Ten title. Wilson said he did not try to throw over the Badgers’ line, which included bookend tackles 6-7 or taller.

“I don’t have a problem seeing over them. I see through lanes and know where guys are going to be,” he said. “I understand defenses and just play with rhythm and timing.”
