On the Hoof: May be a tad smaller than listed. He has powerful lower body that makes it hard for him to get knocked off his feet, plus he has an upper body that can easily hold 15 more pounds. Right now, looks like a huge outside linebacker in a strongside defensive end's frame.
Needs Improvement: Will need to add more upper body strength and play lower at the point of attack in order not to get knocked off the ball.
Most Impressive: Tremendous all-around athlete that starts both ways at the 5A level in Texas high school football. Wilson also never gives up on a play and will chase the ball carrier anywhere on the field. He is relentless in his pursuit and effort.
Conclusion: His size and athleticism lead me to believe he will have a similar career to Brian Orakpo as a pass rusher. Wilson should also end up a tremendous run stopper because of his superior athleticism and strength.
