Notes:
Led the Alabama Crimson Tide to a top ranking in the nation by reeling off 12 straight victories to begin the 2008 campaign, before losing to both Florida and Utah to close out the season...Wilson took nearly every snap for the Tide this past season, completing 57.9 percent of his attempts for 2,273 yards and 10 touchdowns, but was also picked off eight times as the team leaned heavily on the rushing attack more often than not...Started all 13 games as a junior in 2007, allowing him to reset the Alabama record book for many passing stats, including yards in a season (2,846) and TD passes (18), yet he still fell victim to 12 interceptions...However, Wilson did put together a streak of 132 consecutive pass attempts without a pick during the campaign, representing the fourth-longest stretch in school history...Is just one of three Alabama quarterbacks to have passed for 2,000 yards in at least two seasons in their career...Had the luxury of sitting back and watching the running game for the Tide do most of the work, although he still came up with some impressive passing numbers nonetheless...By virtue of playing in the SEC, he will have anumber of teams taking a good hard look at him when it comes time to make a pick for a skill player in this year's draft.
