Michael Wilson - WR Stanford 2023 NFL Draft

Michael Wilson - WR Stanford

Wilson 16x9


The former four-star recruit from Chaminade High School in Southern California matriculated north for 2018, playing in all 13 games as a true freshman with two starts (14-126-9.0, one TD receiving: 8-65-8.1 punt returns). Wilson started all 12 games in 2019, leading the Cardinal in receiving (56-672-12.0, five TDs; also 12-72-6.0 punt returns). He missed the end of the 2020 season with a foot injury but still garnered honorable mention All-Pac-12 notice from league coaches for his work in four starts (19-261-13.7, one TD receiving; 2-14-7.0 punt returns). Wilson returned to start the team's final four games in 2021 (19-185-9.7) but then missed the second half of the 2022 season with an injury (26-418-16.1, four TDs in six starts). Again, Pac-12 coaches voted him to the honorable mention rolls even though he missed time.

Scouting Report

Energetic wideout who plays the game with excellent urgency and effort. Wilson plays to his top speed at all times, but he needs to become a more efficient route runner to beat NFL coverage. The ball skills are a little below average, but he's a cantankerous run blocker and has the potential to become a very good gunner on special teams. Staying healthy will be priority No. 1 for Wilson, but his versatility and competitive nature should give him a chance to become a plus NFL backup with upside.
