Scouting Report: Kris Wilson
Name: Kris Wilson School Pittsburgh Year 5Sr Ht: 6-2 Wt: 248 40: 4.63 Pos: TE Bio: Second team All Conference selection last season after receiving numbers of 44/643/9. Junior and sophomore numbers were 18/389/2 and 19/272/2 respectively. All Academic selection three times in his Pittsburgh career. Pos: Competitive tight end that excels as a pass catcher. Fluid releasing off the line, sells his routes and gets separation from defenders. In tune with the quarterback, displays a sense of timing and extends to grab the high throw. Displays the ability to make the reception in the secondary. Plays with leverage, balance and works as a blocker. Good focus in all aspects of the game. Neg: Not explosive into blocks, lacks strength at the point of attack and has difficulty taking out defenders. Lacks foot speed and does not out run opponents. Analysis: Wilson has done a terrific job maximizing all his skills and did so while going unnoticed. Put in a consistent week at the Senior Bowl the performed well at the combine which has improved his stock. May never be a number one tight end but a pass catcher brought onto the field during third down or red zone situations.
