Biography: Full-time starter the past three seasons besides starting seven games as a freshman. All-Conference selection as a senior after totaling 57/10.5/5.5. Junior totals included 70/18.5/10.5 when he was initially awarded All-Conference honors.
Positives: Athletic college pass rusher who displays good speed off the edge. Possesses solid first step quickness, displays an array of pass rushing moves, and is fast up the field. Effectively uses his hands to protect himself, keeps his feet moving on contact, and rarely off his feet. Fluid moving in every direction, plays with balance and good pad level. Has blocked kicks in the past.
Negatives: Undersized, lacks strength at the point and rather easily pushed from his angle of attack by single opponent. Can be engulfed at the point.
Analysis: Wilson is a solid pass-rush prospect with marginal size for the next level. He offers possibilities as a rotational player in a conventional four-man line, and he has special teams abilities that will help him secure a spot on an NFL roster.
