Draft Analysis:

Wilson was a highly productive 2-year starter for the Bulldogs. Not a complete player, but he adds range versus the run for the Chiefs. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

Three-year starter. Productive and shows downhill traits to make impact tackles. Linear build with limbs to push his way around second-level linemen. Mirrors play and slides laterally with ease. Finished 2014 with the SEC's highest tackle-quality grade amongst starting linebackers. Has the potential to play SAM or WILL linebacker spots in a 4-3. Can get sideline to sideline and isn't easily taken off his feet.

Weaknesses

There are questions about how effective he can be in coverage. Doesn't play with consistent physicality. Scouts worried about ability to "mirror and match" tight ends in coverage. Zone awareness needs work. Instincts are below average. Questionable strength to play inside on the next level. Allows himself to get mauled when linemen square him up. Tends to coast his way through some plays. Grab-and-drag tackler.

Draft Projection

Round 4

Sources Tell Us

"I think he can play inside in a 3-4 as long as he's not the 'take on' linebacker. In a 4-3, I think the SAM then WILL are his best spots in that order. I'm a little worried that he could get picked on in coverage in our league." -- NFC area scout

Bottom Line

Wilson could use more thump in his game. He will occasionally flash explosiveness, but we don't see it enough. Productive over the last two years, with ability to come in and help on special teams. Attack- oriented defense could turn Wilson into a more urgent player, but he might have to prove he can be more than just a backup linebacker.
