Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Zach Wilson are the perfect match

Zach Wilson-An impressive resume
For those who have not seen any BYU games yet this season, the Cougars are rolling. At 8-0 and in a clear position to finish the season 10-0, the college football world is in real danger of having its playoff formatting becoming obsolete again. If the UCF Knights made a compelling case to extend the format to more than four teams in 2017, BYU could have the same impact this year.

The main reason behind the unprecedented success for the Cougars is their offense. BYU is averaging a shocking 45 points per game, and they have scored more than 50 three times this season, with only one game having fewer than 40 points scored.
Wilson is playing lights-out on one of the best offensive teams in the country, so it is of no surprise that his name is quickly garnering some buzz.
Even with nearly 100 fewer pass attempts than in 2019, Wilson has thrown for 130 more passing yards for 2,512, 11 more touchdowns for 22, and seven fewer interceptions with just two.
This dominance at the college level, even against teams that may not be in the ACC or the SEC, shows that Wilson does belong at the next level. For those who have no seen his highlight real yet, check out Zach Wilson here.
If Wilson can close out this season with sustained dominance and put on a show at the combine, he could become one of the best quarterbacks in the draft that will also be attainable for teams outside the top-ten.
