This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.

Russell Wilson, Wisconsin
Heightt: 5'11, Weight: 210 pounds

Strengths: Wilson is a good athlete who spins a nice, clean football. Showed as a senior he’s accurate when in a rhythm. A North Carolina State transfer, Wilson does a good job of keeping his eyes down the field when the play develops. Works well on the move. Carries himself with a confident but professional demeanor.

Weaknesses: Height will always be a concern. Would be highly rated if he were 6-foot-2. Often gets off balance in the pocket when he moves around to find a throwing window. As a senior, was helped by an offense geared on running the ball, creating favorable throwing situations.
