Zach Wilson has cemented himself as the second-ranked quarterback prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft. Some would argue that he has just made Urban Meyer question his decision with the number one overall pick. Trevor Lawrence has been a lock all season as the first overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

While throwing the football on Friday, Zach Wilson made every throw look effortless. He was smooth in his release and made some throws that caused the people in attendance to cheer as if it were a real game. Zach Wilson has definitely thrown a wrench into things after his performance.

On that note, let's take a look at how Zach Wilson performed on his 2021 College Pro Day.

The number two overall quarterback and the second-best overall prospect in the 2021 NFL Draft featured at the BYU Pro Day on Friday.

Wilson only threw during his Pro Day on Friday. He went through about 60 plays, showing off his great arm strength and his ability to place the football on the money.

Even though Zach Wilson didn't perform any outside drills, NFL scouts had a decent view of the player. Let's take a look at how Zach Wilson measured on his Pro Day:

-- Weight: 214lbs.

On his Pro Day, one throw stood out more than others. Zach Wilson rolled out to his left and while falling away, he threw a long ball to the right side of the field as if it was nothing. He also made a 'Patrick Mahomes no-look pass'.

If anyone had any doubt about his ability at the quarterback position, Zach Wilson answered them on Friday.

He makes throws he shouldn't be able to make, and his arm strength is phenomenal. It's just impressive he is able to make the long ball throws and difficult throws seem effortless.
