Marquess Wilson NFL Draft Profile

Marquess Wilson NFL Draft Profile

Marquess Wilson, Junior, WR, Washington State    



Marquess Wilson wasted no time routing defensive backs in college, earning a starting spot during his freshman season. In that season he compiled 1,006 yards, a team high, and three touchdowns, tying a team high. He followed that impressive season with an even more impressive encore. In 2011 he snared a school record 82 catches as well and reeled in 12 touchdowns. At 6’4, corners have a difficult time matching up with him and he adjusts to the ball well. He is sure handed and has breakaway speed, scoring five touchdowns of 50 or more yards.


Final Projection:

Wilson does a great job shielding away defenders with his big frame. He has great speed, and despite his frail frame is very tough. He will haul in anything thrown in his general direction. He has had two ultra productive collegiate seasons and will likely have a third. He is a homerun threat, which should turn NFL heads, but needs to start breaking more tackles to raise his stock. With his speed and size combination, paired with his excellent hands, Wilson should be running into the first round of the NFL draft if he decides to declare after his junior campaign.
