Where it may hurt him is his ability to get off the line against press coverage, and or create separation downfield. If he can get off a jam, then I think that there is no reason he wont be on the 53 man roster. Yes, the elite WR need to possess the strength to make the superstar plays (going up in traffic to get a ball and possibly take it away from a defender) we won't be asking Wilson to do this. What we will ask him if he makes the roster and sees some snaps is to just simply be an option, run solid routes, and if hes open make a catch. I would be more concerned with his ability to run the right routes and learn the playbook way before I want to know what his bench press is. In that sense, I agree with you that a bit too much is being made about his upper body strength.
