BIO: Three-year starter who saw limited action with the first team as a redshirt freshman.
POSITIVES: Wide-bodied blocker with a good degree of athleticism, footwork sliding out to protect the edge, as well as effective hand technique. Strong at the point and engulfs defenders off the snap. Makes good use of body-positioning and jolts opponents with good hand punch.
NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment, not light on his feet and can be beaten by nimble or quick opponents. Must develop a nasty streak. Poorly conditioned, heavy-footed and looks significantly overweight.
ANALYSIS: A top prospect after his sophomore campaign, Wheeler has suffered with injuries and weight gain the past two years. Has the ability to play at the next level at a number of offensive line positions if he gets himself into football shape.
