Zach Wilson Height is Not What You Thought

Zach Wilson Height is Not What You Thought


Zach Wilson is one of the hottest prospects heading into the 2021 NFL Draft. He's all but locked up as the No. 2 pick by the New York Jets after his impressive pro day. Wilson has even drawn comparisons to the 6-foot-3 Patrick Mahomes, both in playstyle and build.

However, Wilson official height isn't exactly what's been advertised.

Wilson measured 6-foot-2, 210 pounds at the NFL's medical combine earlier this month. That's only notable because he's listed as 6-foot-3 on both BYU's school website and ESPN.

Does it ultimately make any difference? Not likely.

Official heights, especially ones listed by teams, are always worth taking with a grain of salt due to some embellishments. And Wilson's slight height variation, as opposed to a drastic revelation, isn't going to change anything.

The BYU QB impressed with 3,692 yards and 33 TDs (with just 3 INTs) in 2020. He also showcased his dual-threat potential with 70 rushes for 254 yards and 10 additional scores.

The San Francisco 49ers may have moved up to No. 3 with a hope that Wilson would fall, but there's almost zero chance of that happening. He's set to become the new franchise QB for the Jets and first-year head coach Robert Saleh as they look to build a contender from the ground up.
