Zach Wilson went super viral on Friday.
The former BYU quarterback, who is widely projected as the second overall pick in next month’s NFL draft, delivered an impressive pro day in front of numerous scouts.
Wilson displayed the arm strength that sparked his breakout season for the Cougars as he tossed a few off-balance throws that went 50 yards.
Trevor Lawrence saw this incredible cannon of a pass and reacted just like all us of.
“The goal today was to kind of show what makes me different, the type of throws I can make that I feel like other guys don’t practice and don’t try to do,” Wilson said afterward on a Zoom call. “That was the goal — to show what makes me different.”
During Wilson’s workout, news broke that the 49ers had traded up with the Miami Dolphins, jumping from No. 12 to No. 3.
After his workout, Wilson could be seen speaking with New York Jets manager Joe Douglas.
“Great staff. Love those guys,” Wilson said of the Jets, who have interviewed him on Zoom calls. “Joe Douglas is a great guy. It was good to see him out here. They’ve got a good thing going.”
