Pos: 
Large, game-changing defensive lineman who can dominate the action. Plays with great leverage and shows incredible athleticism. Consistently double-teamed by opponents but is impossible to move off the point and can be a one-man wrecking crew. Easily changes direction, shows speed laterally and pursues ball carriers out to the flanks. Fires off the snap with a great first step, keeps his feet moving and fluidly makes plays in all areas of the field. Shows power and the ability to bull rush opponents off the line. Terrific pass rusher with a closing burst and the ability to immediately alter his angle of attack.
Neg: 
Inconsistent hand usage. Does not always play with a great sense of urgency.
Analysis: 
Wilkins is a terrific athlete who combines size, power and ability to dominate opponents. Highly thought of off the field, Wilkins will be successful in whatever he does and has a tremendous future at the next level if he prioritizes football.
