NO. 3 TYLER WILSON
Arkansas senior quarterback
Weight: 220 lbs.
Why he's No. 3: He was the first Razorback in school history to be named first-team All-SEC quarterback last season after throwing for 3,638 yards and 24 touchdowns. He's on many preseason All-America teams and is considered a strong Heisman candidate in 2012. He's a very accurate passer and an excellent decision-maker. He's also a strong leader.
College career: Wilson is the 10th 4,000-yard passer in school history with 4,378 career yards and 31 touchdowns. He holds nine school records, including career passing percentage, and has produced three of the top five single game completion marks in school history.
Fun fact: Wilson likely would have been a first-round NFL Draft pick if he'd decided to come out early this past spring. The Razorbacks certainly are happy he didn't make that call. He might also be a top pick when next year's draft comes along. In an early, early draft projection, SI.com's Andrew Perloff has Wilson being the overall No. 1 pick in the 2013 draft. He has the quarterback going to the Jacksonville Jaguars.
