Overview

Wilber is an big, athletic and strong outside backer from Wake Forest who looks the part of a pro defender and could contribute early for an NFL team. He arrived at Wake Forest as a top recruit from Florida, bringing his size and speed to the defense. He is a bit of a poor man's Aaron Curry, whom he played with early on in his career. He is a high-energy, high-motor player who hasn't played much on special teams at Wake Forest because of the team's needs, but he could easily contribute there early on at the next level. Look for a team needing linebacker depth and special teams contributions to select him in the late rounds and potentially develop him into a starter.

Analysis

Strengths

Wilber is fast and can move quickly once he deciphers a play. He is very quick twitched and efficient in his movements and uses his footwork and agility well to stay off blocks on the second level. He doesn't have a ton of strength, but he hits his gaps hard and really can pack a punch at the line of scrimmage when he meets running backs. He is better against the run than he is against the pass, but he can play over the tight end well enough to disrupt him early. He has good technique both in his footwork and tackling form.

Weaknesses

Wilber is atheltic, but he struggles in space against the run. He has a bit of an awkward pass drop and his flexibility is an issue in those exposures. Wilber also is a much better player against outside runs than inside, and he has a tough time using his hands to disengage from blockers.
