Round 1, pick 29: Isaiah Wilson, OT
Another pick that made sense on paper, Isaiah Wilson could end up being the biggest bust of the Robinson era.
With Jack Conklin bolting for Cleveland, it made sense to draft a potentially elite OT in the 1st round. And by all accounts, Wilson has the physical tools to be elite. Mentally? Well, it’s not starting out great.
In September, Wilson was charged with DUI. Let it be known that everyone makes mistakes, and this is not an indictment on Wilson as a person, but it is definitely disappointing when your 1st round pick gets into legal trouble before his rookie season even begins.
Wilson is one of two 1st round picks in 2020 to have not played a snap yet (Jordan Love is the other). When you factor in the Taylor Lewan injury, that’s even more troubling. Hopefully, Wilson can figure things out and end the year as a starting tackle for the team. While 2020 may be a lost cause for Wilson, I’m willing to hold out hope for him based on his insane potential.
This pick made sense. Wilson and Lewan could be elite bookends for years to come, only time will tell. 2020 has been a hard year for everybody.
