FAYETTEVILLE – Former University of Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson’s episode of Jon Gruden’s QB Camp, where Gruden mentors top collegiate talent in preparation for the 2013 NFL Draft, debuts Monday at 8:30 p.m. Central Time on ESPN2.

Gruden, a Monday Night Football analyst and Super Bowl-winning coach, selects only the top collegiate talent to participate in the camp. Last season, Gruden mentored Indianapolis Colts’ starting quarterback Andrew Luck, Washington Redskins’ starting quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins Ryan Tannehill, among others.

Wilson becomes the second Razorback to participate in the camp, which is in its fourth season, joining former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett. Wilson’s invitation, along with former Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones’, makes Arkansas and Oklahoma the first schools to have two quarterbacks selected for the show. 

Wilson became the first Razorback in school history to be named first-team All-SEC quarterback when he was selected to the first team on the AP and coaches’ teams in 2011. He broke 29 school records, including career passing yards, career completions and career completion percentage, and has three of the top five single-game completions totals and the top-two spots on the school’s single-game passing yards and total offense yards lists. He was 593-of-948 passing for 7,765 yards and 52 touchdowns.

Wilson also ranked fifth on the SEC’s all-time career total offense per play list with an average of 7.30. His career completion percentage of 62.6 was sixth in conference history, and his pass efficiency rating of 144.0 was ninth on the SEC’s career list.

In addition to his school records, he also left UA ranking second on the school’s career pass attempts list, second on the total offense yards list with 7,721, third on the total offense per play list, fourth on the career touchdown passes list, fourth on the touchdown responsibility list with 56 and fourth on the total offense plays list with 1,058.

The 2013 NFL Draft takes place April 25-27 from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The first round will be April 25 beginning at 7 p.m., followed by rounds two and three the next day beginning at 5:30 p.m. and rounds four through seven wrapping up the draft beginning at 11 a.m. on April 27. ESPN and NFL Network will air all seven rounds live.
