Defensive Line Pros
Power Rush– Really has a nice power move.
Disengage – Does a really nice job disengaging from blockers to make stops in the run game.
Run Recognition – Really good at recognizing run-blocking concepts and shooting gaps.
Defensive Line Cons
First Step – Wilson doesn’t provide an explosive first step and will not be beating guys with his speed very often.
Stiff Hips – Because of his height, he isn’t great at dipping his hips and getting around tackles on the outside.
No “go-to” Move – While Wilson can disengage well at the point of attack, he doesn’t really have that go-to move in critical situations.
