PLAYERS
Kyle Wilber
Round 4, Pick 113
Position: OLB
Class:  Sr
School: Wake Forest
HT: 6'3"
WT: 240 lbs.
40 Time: 4.75
Conference: ACC
Biography: Two-year starter who finished with 70 tackles/11.5 tackles for loss/3.5 sacks as a senior and 65/14.5/6 as a junior.

Positives: Hardworking, versatile college defensive end expected to stand up at linebacker in the NFL. Effectively diagnoses the action, plays with leverage and works hard. Slices through blocks to make plays behind the line of scrimmage, fluid changing direction and displays speed chasing the action in pursuit. Easily moves down the sidelines and plays smart, disciplined football. Productive and gives effort on special teams.

Negatives: Struggles in coverage and displays poor ball skills. Slowed by blocks.

Analysis: Wilber was productive in all aspects of the Wake Forest defense and has the skill set necessary to be a 3-4 outside linebacker in the NFL. He'll need to polish his game and improve his skill making plays in reverse, but he possesses the ability to eventually break into a starting lineup at the next level.

Projection: 4th
