Biography: Junior college transfer and two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior. Totals last season included 105/9/1 after 66 tackles as a junior.
Positives: Swift, flowing linebacker who hustles to make plays on the field. Effectively quarterbacks the defense, scrapes well laterally, and flies around the football. Uses his hands to protect himself, quickly changes direction and shows speed moving in every area of the field. Gets depth on drops, quick pedaling in reverse and shows a nice feel in coverage.
Negatives: Undersized and gets caught up in the trash or easily knocked from his angle of attack. Inefficient and takes extra steps to the action.
Analysis: Wilson is an average-sized linebacker with solid instincts and field awareness. Offers possibilities as a backup and can be used on the weak side.
