Michael Wilson, Stanford WR, among PFF's biggest draft risers following Senior Bowl
Michael Wilson had an up-and-down tenure during his time at Stanford. Now preparing for the 2023 NFL Draft, Wilson has seen his stock rise after a strong performance at the Reese’s Senior Bowl.
On Tuesday, PFF’s Trevor Sikkema broke down his 10 biggest draft risers following the college football all-star games. Wilson — a 6-foot-1 wide receiver was the first player mentioned.
Here’s some of what Sikkema had to say about Wilson:
Wilson was one of the best stories from Senior Bowl week. The 6-foot-1, 215-pound receiver turned heads due to his understanding of how to win at the position. He was consistently getting early separation on his releases off the line of scrimmage. And in his route stem and at his breaks, he was once again enhancing the throwing window… He went from a relative unknown (in the media’s eyes) to a Day 2 pick.
Wilson had a breakout season as a sophomore for the Cardinal back in 2019, leading the team with 672 receiving yards to go with 56 catches and 5 touchdowns. Unfortunately, injuries plagued Wilson throughout the rest of his time in college.
During the 2022 season, Wilson was limited to just 6 games but still led Stanford with 4 receiving touchdowns. Now, he’ll wait to hear his name called and hope to carve out a role for himself at the next level.
