Bio: 
Three-year starter who was named Honorable Mention All-MAIA and caught 19 passes for 166 yards and one touchdown as a senior. Made 24 receptions for 222 yards and two TDs in 2016. Named Honorable Mention All-MAIA and made 32 catches for 275 yards and three scores as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Nice-sized tight end with next-level measurables. Bends his knees, plays with leverage and quickly releases off the line into pass routes. Plays to his 40 time, follows the quarterback across the field and works to make himself an available target. Nicely adjusts to errant throws and makes receptions with his hands away from his frame.
Neg: 
Was never a dominant blocker at the small-school level. Turned in pedestrian production.
Analysis: 
At face value, Wilson possesses the size, athleticism and pass-catching skills to play at the next level, but he needs a lot of work on his game. He comes with terrific upside and should be given practice-squad consideration this fall.
