Prospect Summary

Tyree Wilson NFL Draft Scouting Report

EDGE, Texas Tech Red Raiders

Tyree Wilson is a senior defensive lineman that transferred to the Red Raiders football program after spending two years at Texas A&M. Wilson has been an immediate impact player for the Red Raiders, showcasing versatility along this defensive front by playing both the edge and interior defensive line positions for the Red Raiders. Wilson is listed at 6-foot-6 and 275 pounds, which gives him plus-level size and range along the defensive front making impact plays both against the run and as a pass rusher. 

Against the run, Wilson showcases great strength in how he can shed offensive linemen with ease and make himself available to make a tackle. When Wilson can get a great start at the snap, he can use his momentum and convert his size and speed into power to knock back offensive linemen and immediately disrupt the flow of run plays. Wilson also shows the athleticism to be able to chase down plays backside when left unblocked.

Wilson shows best as a pass rusher when he is reduced inside. As a pass rusher, Wilson uses his strength to dominate offensive lineman. Wilson uses his momentum combined with his size and strength to bull-rush offensive linemen and collapse the pocket by overpowering the offensive lineman. Wilson also showcases being a functional athlete on twists and stunts. He can maneuver in condensed spaces around edges and surprise offensive linemen with his fluid movements, penetrating the backfield and making plays. 

The questions about Wilson will not be about if he can play in the NFL, but rather what position will best complement his skill set. Wilson is physically dominant, has a great frame, and plays with consistent force, but there are questions about him as an edge rusher. Wilson appears to be athletic enough to play the position but does not appear to be quick enough to consistently make impact plays rushing the quarterback from this alignment. Wilson has good speed but not enough to repeatedly threaten tackles to get to the quarterback by running the arc around them. When Wilson cannot win quickly from the edge position, there are multiple instances where he becomes stagnant in his rush, resulting in minimal impact on the play. 

Overall, Wilson is a prospect that possesses high-level physical traits that should allow him to make an immediate impact as a run defender. In the right positional alignment, he can also be a good pass-rusher, which could make him a complete defensive lineman at the next level.
