Overview

Wilson is a pretty impressive physical specimen with good measurables. Probably projects best as a strong side outside linebacker in a 4-3. At that position, should be able to hold outside contain using his long arms and strength to keep tight ends off his body against the run, and jam at the line or pressure the quarterback in passing situations. Is susceptible to good ball handling and doesn't show good awareness dropping into coverage. Has character flags and endurance has been questioned. However, Wilson's frame, straight-line speed, and upside will likely entice a franchise to select him on Day 2.

Analysis

Strengths

Wilson is a great looking prospect on the hoof with good height, length and speed. Finds the football quickly. Displays the ability to take on blockers, shed, and make plays close to the line. Exhibits sideline-to-sideline ability. Dangerous pass rusher off the edge who brings speed and power. Has experience rushing with hand on the ground.

Weaknesses

Can be fooled by play-action and misdirection. Unsound positioning and awareness in zone coverage. High-cut player who needs to watch his pad level and battles hip stiffness on occasion. Struggles to break down in space at times. Has difficultly mirroring in man coverage after jamming. Appears to lack adequate in-game stamina at times.
