BIO: Became a full-time starter last season and responded with rushing numbers of 282/1,380/12 and 15/95/1 as a receiver. Top reserve to Avon Cobourne as a junior, yet rushed for 140/901/6 with 8 receptions. Father is former Chicago Bears linebacker Otis Wilson.
POSITIVES: Tough inside runner that showed himself to be a heavy-duty ball carrier last season. Patient, follows blocks and runs with good vision. Bounces outside and avoids piles if nothing's available, quickly finding the running lanes. Displays good first-step quickness and has a slight burst through the hole. Powerful lower body, quick regaining balance off initial contact and breaks several tackles gaining the tough yardage. Works his runs and takes the important handoffs late in a game. Competitive and significantly improved both his run and pass-blocking last season.
NEGATIVES: More of a straight-line runner that cannot quickly cut it back or turn the corner. Has only a short area burst of speed and cannot run to daylight. Lacks the soft natural hands out of the backfield.
ANALYSIS: Known as a player that leads by example, Wilson was a main cog in West Virginia's Big East championship last season. A tough runner that should easily handle the short yardage duties in the NFL, expect Wilson to slip through the cracks in April and then turn into a late-round gem.
