Overview

Wylie is an undersized receiver from Fresno State who was actually never a full-time starter during his time there. He has battled injuries throughout his career, and this has greatly effected his ability to be productive but has also kept him a hidden gem-type prospect who has fourth-round value based off his ability to contribute as a starter immediately in the return game. He is a burner whose 40 time will greatly help and support his grade despite limited playing time at a WAC school.

Analysis

Strengths

Wylie is highly effective as a returner as he is very decisive and has the speed to make one cut and get up field to take it the distance. As a receiver, he is very quick off the ball and gets into his route immediately. He understands how to use his quick feet to overcome his size and get off the line. He is a good route runner who can get open at the top of routes due to his acceleration and ability to break on a dime. He is a consummate deep threat and could be effective running quick screens and getting yards after the catch at the next level.

Weaknesses

Wylie is an undersized receiver who has been completely hampered throughout his career by injuries. Teams will be turned off by his durability and inability to consistently see the field at Fresno State.
