which draftee is 'mentally tougher'?
who handles defense pressure better?
who handles adversity better?
who handles leadership issues etc?
who handles off-the-field issues best?
*insert whatever mental discipline and toughness issues here*
I picked Wilson.
I have seen him stand in the pocket, looking right down the barrel, knowing he was going to take a big hit and complete the pass over and over.
He handled the change at HC with all that drama that came with the Petrino fiasco, and still played at a high level inspite of his new HC incompetence.
He has taken blame for bad play when it was not all on him. I have seen him verbally command more of his team and get it.
I don't know of any off the field issues.
