Ramik Wilson – Linebacker

Wilson is a bit of a quandary. He’s linebacker with third or even second round talent, but it’s doubtful he’ll be taken that early (although surprises do happen).

Chances are Wilson will slip to the 4th, even 5th round and will have to find a home with a team running a 3-5 scheme, as he’s not sizable and strong enough to be the MLB in a 4-3 defense. That doesn’t dismiss his ability to work in run stop situations and to become a pass rush threat in blitzes with his speed.

Wilson’s weakness is in pass coverage, which may be why he’s dropped down in the draft and why he’ll probably be a backup and situational player.

Likely Landing Spot: New England Patriots (4th Round, 2nd pick/101st overall)

Wilson is a Bill Belichick type of player, being very versatile and willing to do whatever is needed to help the team. He’s got experience on special teams and can work several different linebacker positions. A possible hybrid player in Belichick’s defense and a special teams standout would be his calling in New England.

The Pats are notorious for finding guys like Wilson and turning them into Patriot Way kind of players. There could be much worse fates for this Bulldog.
