SKOL Search: Tylan Wallace Scouting Report

After having a great start to the 2019 season, Oklahoma State receiver Tylan Wallace was well on his way to being a first round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Unfortunately, Wallace had a season ending torn ACL and decided to come back to Stillwater for his senior season. With the triplets of Wallace, Chuba Hubbard and Spencer Sanders, the Cowboys were an explosive unit. Wallace caught 59 passes for 908 yards and 6 touchdowns, posing a major downfield threat to every team they faced.

Tylan Wallace

Height: 6′

Weight: 190 lbs

Strengths: Wallace is a classic deep threat receiver. Uses his quick feet and burst to stack corners with relative ease. Tracking is a plus skill for Wallace. Exudes great body control in the air and is physical at the catch point. Route running is smooth and calculated. Does a great job selling the deep ball before breaking it off with ease, including the ability to stop on a dime. Possesses great awareness to find the open spot in the zone and work back to the quarterback in the scramble drill. Shows strong hands being able to pluck the ball easily out of mid-air.

Weaknesses: Didn’t see much press coverage at Oklahoma State. Mainly played versus soft zone. Size also could be an issue at the next level. Is capable in open space but was not utilized as such in college. The air raid scheme he played in limited his usage to a small route tree and only the right side of the field. True top speed could also limit his effectiveness.

While Tylan Wallace doesn’t possess the top end speed you want out of your normal deep threat, but has all the tools to be successful at the next level. With a couple of seasons to polish up his route running and getting him acclimated to an NFL route tree, Wallace could easily blossom into a really good NFL wide receiver.
