A former NFL scout is on an island regarding Zach Wilson.
Former NFL scout Daniel Kelly – who coincidentally was a Jets scout during Bill Parcells day – is absolutely do not a supporter of BYU quarterback Zach Wilson, who is now considered QB2 in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Kelly excoriated Wilson in a recent scouting report, calling him, among other things, a “foolproof bust”, “fabricated quarterback” and who will be an “interception machine” in the NFL.
It’s a bold take from former Jets scout Daniel Kelly. Respect this man for essentially standing out from himself here. pic.twitter.com/n6KxBeo6MX

While most analysts view Wilson as the second-best quarterback in the NFL Draft, Kelly goes so far as to say he wouldn’t write Wilson at all: “It would be stupid to take him to the first round. will get everyone fired. The best chance of success is an attack filled with tricks. “
Wilson, like any other NFL prospect, is not without his question marks in the draft. Kelly, like others, points to his propensity to throw 50/50 balls, BYU’s timeline, and its durability as red flags.
Parts of the Reconnaissance Report don’t make much sense, however: Kelly says Wilson is an inconsistent passer, despite being one of the most accurate passer in the country; he says Wilson will have to adjust to throwing a bigger ball in the NFL, despite negligible differences in ball size, and that Wilson doesn’t look like he was “born to be a quarterback. “. Whatever that means.
There are all kinds of wobbly and harmless analyzes coming out this time of year – just look at the Daniel Orlovsky-Justin Fields issue – but if Wilson Is bust, you can regard Daniel Kelly as the prophet.
