FAYETTEVILLE Former Arkansas quarterback Tyler Wilson will be featured in the fourth season of Gruden's QB Camp on ESPN.
The hour-long show features quarterbacks breaking down game film and working on fundamentals with former Super Bowl winning coach Jon Gruden, who now serves as the Monday Night Football color analyst for the network.
Wilson is one of nine quarterbacks selected this season. Matt Barkley (USC), Tyler Bray (Tennessee), Zac Dysert (Miami, Ohio), Mike Glennon (North Carolina State), Landry Jones (Oklahoma), EJ Manuel (Florida State), Ryan Nassib (Syracuse) and Geno Smith (West Virginia) will also be included.
Three non-quarterbacks - Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o, South Carolina running back Marcus Lattimore and Texas A&M offensive tackle Luke Joeckel - will also be featured this season. Times and dates of the show have yet to be finalized.
Former Arkansas quarterback Ryan Mallett was featured on the show two years ago. Wilson, who participated in the Senior Bowl last month, is projected by some analysts as a first round pick in April's NFL Draft.
