Mack Wilson Scouting Report

Name: Mack Wilson - Position: LB

Height: 6'1" - Weight: 240 lbs

School: Alabama

Pro ceiling: Zach Brown

Analyst : Brandon Olsen

Wilson has great hips and good eyes in coverage, allowing him to make a play on the ball in pass defense. Against the run, Wilson relies on his speed to meet ball carriers and deliver crushing blows. Wilson has a knack for finding the ball and has the ability to make some athletic interceptions, including a diving INT vs Texas A&M.

Wilson doesn’t seem to have the highest football IQ, he overpursues more often than teams would like and he doesn’t always make the best read to make a play. Wilson is physical with ball carriers but not so much when it comes time to meet an offensive lineman.

Games Watched: All of 2018

Wilson isn’t LB1 for me, but he is potentially my favorite linebacker to watch from the 2019 NFL Draft. His athleticism and playmaking ability are huge pluses for me and where he does lack in block shedding and some overpursue issues, those issues don’t bring him down much as I don’t think they’re huge issues and can be fixed.

Best Fits: Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, Oakland Raiders
