Overview:

Muhammad Wilkerson is getting some solid 1st round consideration and I’d say it’s well deserved. He has the potential to be a great 3-4 end because of his size and strength. He can occupy blockers and is tough player. He has to work on his technique, most notably his hand usage. He still struggles to shed blocks at times although he does have the ability. He may need some work but he can be a good player in the NFL.
