BIO: Three-year starter at split-side tackle. Second-team All-Big 12 player who spent his first two-years in the program at defensive tackle.
POSITIVES: Durable blocker still learning the position. Technically sound lineman who effectively uses blocking angles, body positioning, and works hard until the whistle blows. Gets his hands up, moves his feet in pass protection and anchors at the point. Punches opponents knocking them from their angle of attack.
NEGATIVES: Limited to confined quarters and not effective in motion. Lacks balance, adjustment, and body control. Gets minimal movement from run blocks. Lacks explosion and pop at the point of attack. Punished for several alcohol-related incidents in the past.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working prospect with growth potential, Wilder has displayed steady progress the past two seasons. Played tackle in college yet may be better off at guard in the NFL for a zone-blocking system that limits his area responsibilities.
