MSU's Wilson confident he will answer questions about speed


Daily Journal

INDIANAPOLIS – NFL teams would like to see a faster De’Runnya Wilson, but more than a few may invite him along the ride because of his size.

Wilson, the Mississippi State standout, measured 6-foot-4 5/8 at the NFL Combine today, the tallest among wide receivers.

“They’re concerned with my speed, but I’m going to do well when the time comes,” he said. “I’ve prayed about it. I’ve put it in God’s hands. I’m not concerned about it at all.”

Wilson is rooming at the combine with Ole Miss wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.

The highest-rated wide receiver here, Treadwell has stirred the news cycle by deciding not to run the 40-yard dash at the combine but to wait for his pro day on March 11.

Wilson says he never considered not going through all combine drills.

“I’m totally different. I can’t base myself off nobody else and what they want to do. I’m willing to do whatever it takes,” he said.

A second-team All-SEC choice by the league’s coaches in 2015, Wilson ended his MSU career with 133 catches for 1,949 yards and 22 touchdowns.

He says in the early get-to-know-you phase, the Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos have shown the most interest in him.

“That would be a great fit. I see a well-developed team with great coaches. Whoever selects me I will showcase, not broadcast, and I will be blessed to be there,” he said.
