A pass rusher built in a lab, Wilson possesses insane length and power. If NFL coaching helps him develop any resemblance of a pass rush plan, he'll terrorize quarterbacks. He'll be gone before pick 13.
* = unofficial measurement
Standing over 6’6 and with 35 5/8” arms down to the ground, Wilson’s game is still catching up to his freakish measurables.
The incredible length he possesses creates consistent mismatches against nearly anyone on the offensive line. He was used both standing up and all over the defensive line with his hand in the dirt. His play style is truly a bull in a china shop, displaying jaw dropping power. There are examples of him on tape running through guards like they are a poster covering a hole in the wall.
Wilson doesn’t have a true pass rush plan right now. Yet his raw traits are so special, he was still productive. Per PFF, he had a 21.9% pass rush win rate in 2022. On top of his seven sacks, he also had ten quarterback hits and 32 more hurries. When he got to the quarterback, it often looked like a car crash.
Against the run, his strides cover a tremendous amount of ground, especially when eliminating the edge. While his body can play fast, his mind is still slow as the run develops. He has makeup speed, but you’d rather not see him playing catch up that often.
Wilson is a true ball of clay prospect. He’s so long and strong that even at the NFL level he should rumble into explosive plays at times. The gigantic question lingering with him is if he can round out his pass rush arsenal and become a force down after down. A team will take that chance in the top 10 of the draft and I can’t say I blame them.
