Conclusion

Overall, Wilson is a three-down linebacker with a great combination of size, coverage skills, and competitiveness as a tackler. He probably fits best playing weak side linebacker in a 4-3 defense, but Wilson can thrive in any off-ball role and should be an impact player on passing downs.
