Lawrence Wilson scouting report

Lawrence Wilson LB Connecticut
Ht: 6’1″

Wt: 230

Strengths:
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.
Weaknesses:
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.
Comments:
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.
