2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Muhammad Wilkerson

  • Great size - tall with long arms
  • Agile former basketball player
  • Pushes pocket and penetrates
  • Able to shoot gaps
  • Anchors well against the run
  • Good pass rusher
  • Scheme and position versatile

  • Rushes with power; needs to learn moves
  • Tendency to get caught upright
  • Did not compete against elite competition
  • Has to get stronger
  • Needs to use his hands more effectively

    Summary: Muhammad Wilkerson is going to draw interest because of his potential as a five-technique defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. Playing inside at tackle, he recorded an impressive 16.5 sacks over the past two seasons although the level of competition (MAC) has to be factored in. Wilkerson finds other ways to make life difficult for the opposing offense by batting down passes and occupying space against the run.

    Player Comparison: Ty Warren. This is difficult because I want to compare Wilkerson to a quality 3-4 defensive end, which I believe he is going to be in the NFL. Warren went to Texas A&M so he didn't have questions about the level of competition en route to going No. 13 overall. Both guys are athletic and like Warren, I can see Wilkerson tallying a few sacks per season.
