Lawrence Wilson scouting report

Lawrence Wilson LB Connecticut
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 230

Extremely productive four-year starter. Always around the football; has great instincts. Does a nice job getting into the backfield; decent pass rusher considering his lack of elite size and strength. Reliable tackler. Very good ball skills for a linebacker; five career interceptions.
Does everything well, but nothing great. Doesn’t have the elite measurables that teams look for at the top of the draft. Speed is marginal. May be limited to playing weak-side linebacker in a 4-3 scheme.
Wilson’s production at UConn was that of an early-round selection, but due to his lack of size, strength and speed he is likely to fall to the third day of the draft. In the mid-to-late rounds he could be a nice addition who will add depth, and potentially compete for a strong job in the right system.
