Weaknesses:


An area which Wilson will need to dramatically improve is his ball security. In instances where he has taken a sack or a bad snap, he has issues, securing the ball which lead to unwanted turnovers. When carrying the ball in open field, Wilson needs to make better decisions in order to avoid unneeded contact, such as sliding. With only 28 career starts, Wilson will need to continue developing his ability to work faster through his progressions, and anticipate oncoming pressure to avoid taking unnecessary sacks.
