04/25/13 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 45. Tyler Wilson, QB, Arkansas: The Arkansas passer wasn't as productive as hoped in 2012, but he possesses the physical and leadership traits to compete for a starting role early in his NFL career. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/24/13 - 2013 Arkansas Pro Day: Arkansas hosted 29 NFL team representatives, including the Miami Dolphins quarterback coach and the Jacksonville Jaguars running back coach, on its pro day on Friday. Drills were run indoors on FieldTurf. Twenty-eight people participated in the pro day, 23 from Arkansas. Tyler Wilson, QB (6-2, 215) - Wilson looked very, very good during drills. He had a lot of zip on the ball, threw tight spirals and made all the throws. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/16/13 - 2013 Arkansas Pro Day: "The combine is a tough representation," Wilson said. "... I threw the ball pretty well there. There some balls location-wise that could have been a little better. But this is a more accurate depiction of what you can do because these are the throws we threw in college. You're familiar with the receivers, you're familiar with the setting, and this is who you are."
Wilson said his schedule over the next month includes visiting with NFL teams in Fayetteville and at the team's facilities. He also said he's only heard speculation about where he'll be picked in the draft, adding the approximate round is close to where he was told he might have been picked if he had come out after his junior season last year. "I think I'm in a pretty good position," Wilson said. "I'm happy that I'm in the spot that I'm in." - AP Sports
03/16/13 - 2013 Arkansas Pro Day: The workout was scripted by former Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke, now the director of the IMG Football Academy in Bradenton, Fla. Wilson has worked at the academy since December with Weinke and former Kansas City Chiefs, Miami Dolphins and St. Louis Rams quarterbacks coach Terry Shea. He only misfired on one attempt, a fade route to the corner of the end zone that sailed over Hamilton's head. The two immediately ran the route again, with no such problems the second time around, and Wilson spent much of his time afterward engaged in conversations on the field inside Arkansas' indoor workout facility.
"It was pretty cool," Wilson said. "I put a lot on my shoulders as far as I want to do well; I want to be selected high. But you've just got to be you at the end of the day and go to work and whatever happens, happens. I'm in a lucky situation where you just get to go to work and have a chance to play in the NFL."
Wilson said he did answer questions at the combine about his health, primarily about a concussion last season that forced him to miss Arkansas' 52-0 loss to Alabama. He also missed the second half of a game as a junior with what former coach Bobby Petrino called "concussion-like symptoms." "It really was the only medical concern," Wilson said. "But it was relatively clean." - AP Sports
