First-year starter who made 49 tackles (5.5 for loss) with 3.5 sacks, seven quarterback hurries and three pass breakups in 2016 despite being limited late in the season by a hand injury he suffered in the season opener. Posted 31 tackles (10.5 for loss), eight sacks, five hurries, three forced fumbles and three pass breakups as a junior in 2015. Took a medical redshirt in 2012 after suffering a season-ending injury.
Tall pass-rushing end who can be a liability against the run. Moves well about the field, displays speed off the edge and keeps his feet and hands active throughout the action. Slides down the line of scrimmage in pursuit of the play, bends his knees and keeps his pads low.
Struggles getting off blocks and is controlled at the point by a single blocker. Stood up at the line against the run. Does not play like a great athlete. Marginal change of direction.
Wise was relatively productive on the college level but is a defensive line prospect who must physically mature, fill out his frame and improve his playing strength.
