This position really drops off after the "big two", but Wilson is an excellent player in his own right. He is an undersized guy with rare speed for an ILB and he is another guy that loves to play the game. He has excellent toughness, always seems to be in the middle of things and he is an outstanding tackler that plays a very physical style. Because of his speed, he has great range and he can get sideline to sideline. His intensity at times works against him as he appears to be out of control and a little undisciplined. All of his weaknesses are correctable and if a NFL team can live with his size and he could be a very interesting player that could also excel in special teams. This may be a guy that you "throw your measurable chart out the window" and just decide that he is a "football player" and draft him.
