BIO: Two-year starter who moved to outside linebacker as a senior after spending his junior campaign at safety. Led the team in tackles last year, posting 68/4.5/1.5.
POSITIVES: Athletic prospect with the ability to be used at several positions. Fluid and quick moving laterally, displays outstanding range and fast to the sidelines. Gets depth on pass drops, can run with tight ends and effective covering receivers in zone. Disciplined, stays with assignments and works to get involved. Collapses well from the outside defending the run. Wraps up tackling.
NEGATIVES: Slow shedding blocks and easily removed from the play. Not efficient. Must improve his overall strength.
ANALYSIS: A solid size/speed prospect who considerably improved his game as a senior, Wilson could be used at outside linebacker in a 34 defense, yet will also get consideration at strong safety. Could be an inexpensive backup for a two-deep system and a player who contributes on special teams.
