Zach Wilson entered the Indoor Practice Facility wearing headphones and looking cool, calm and collected as he smiled and laughed his way through a few stretches and warm ups during BYU’s Pro Day on Friday.
Then, he put on a clinic at the Indoor Practice Facility.
Wilson never appeared to give NFL reps and scouts a reason for new doubts and bump himself down from the NFL Draft projection boards. In fact, the junior Cougar quarterback seems to have cemented himself as a Top 3 pick.
In total, 31 of the NFL’s 32 teams were represented in Provo to watch the former Cougars, a record for a BYU Pro Day. The action in the IPF most likely played a hand in the 2021 Draft order.
The lone exception on Friday? The Jacksonville Jaguars and their new coach, Urban Meyer, cementing the notion that the Jags will choose Clemson’s Trevor Lawrence with the top pick on April 29.
While Wilson was making some warm-up passes, news broke that the San Francisco 49ers made a trade with the Miami Dolphins for the No. 3 pick. The Dolphins were bumped down to No. 12, but, approximately half an hour later, made another trade with the Philadelphia Eagles for the No. 6 pick.
It was reported the Eagles would have liked to trade for the No. 3 pick if they could get Wilson. The Niners trade is perceived to be to get a top quarterback, but it’s unknown if Wilson will still be available by then.
The former BYU quarterback didn’t participate in any of the individual workouts because he tweaked a hamstring and he wanted to make sure he was able to throw, Wilson said.
This story will be updated.
