BIO: Moved into a starting role as a senior and proceeded to win All-Conference honors after totaling 26/11/7.5. Junior numbers included 27/5.5/2 as a back-up.
POSITIVES: Explosive edge-rusher with possibilities as a linebacker in a 34 defense. Plays with great pad level, forceful up the field and splits double-team blocks. Immediately alters his angle and makes plays in every direction. Fast off the edge, plays with balance and stays within his angle of attack. Effective in pursuit and displays top first-step quickness.
NEGATIVES: Engulfed by large opponents or slowed at the point. Struggled with injuries as a starter last year.
ANALYSIS: Flashing big-time abilities the past two seasons, Wimbley comes off a tremendous Senior Bowl where he significantly improved his draft stock. Must add strength and stay injury-free, yet offers terrific upside for the next level.
