One former NFL scout is out on an island with regards to Zach Wilson.
Former NFL scout Daniel Kelly — who, coincidentally, was a scout for the Jets throughout the Invoice Parcells period — is completely not a believer in BYU quarterback Zach Wilson, who’s now thought of to be QB2 within the 2021 NFL Draft.
Kelly excoriated Wilson in a recent scouting report, amongst different issues calling him a “surefire bust,” a “manufactured quarterback” and one who shall be an “interception machine” within the NFL.
That could be a daring take by former Jets scout Daniel Kelly. Respect that man for principally standing out on his personal right here. pic.twitter.com/n6KxBeo6MX

Whereas most analysts peg Wilson because the second-best quarterback prospect within the NFL Draft, Kelly goes so far as to say that he would not draft Wilson in any respect: “It can be silly to take him within the first spherical. He’ll get all people fired. Finest probability to succeed is in an offense crammed with trick performs.”
Wilson, like some other NFL prospect, is not with out his query marks coming into the draft. Kelly, like others, factors to his propensity to throw 50/50 balls, BYU’s schedule and his sturdiness as pink flags.
Some components of the scouting report do not make a lot sense, although: Kelly says that Wilson is an inconsistent passer, regardless of being one of many nation’s most correct passers; he says that Wilson must alter to throwing a larger ball within the NFL, regardless of negligible variations in ball measurement, and that Wilson would not appear like he was “born to be a quarterback.” No matter meaning.
There’s all types of wonky and inoffensive evaluation that comes out this time of yr — simply have a look at the Daniel Orlovsky-Justin Fields issue — but when Wilson does bust, you could think about Daniel Kelly the prophet.
