2023 NFL Draft Focus: Tyree Wilson

111

Welcome to the inaugural edition of the 2023 NFL Draft Focus. In this series, we will look at the incoming prospects hoping their names will be heard on draft night. Be sure to check often as we will produce content until the event’s start.

BACKGROUND

Tyree Wilson is an outside linebacker prospect out of Texas. He had a dominant senior season where he had 126 tackles and five forced fumbles. His commitment to colleges went through different routes. At first, he was committed to playing for Washington State but he decommitted before his final year. As a senior, Rivals listed him as a three-star weakside defensive end prospect. In the end, he committed to play for Texas A&M.

COLLEGE CAREER

In his first season at Texas A&M, he redshirted his true freshman season. In his redshirt freshman season, he played in 11 games but was able only able to get 12 tackles and a sack. After the season, he went to the transfer portal and ultimately went to Texas Tech. He was able to play immediately due to the NCAA giving him a waiver and he improved as the season progressed. He ended his first season with the Raiders with 38 tackles and seven sacks.

2022-2023 COLLEGE CAREER

He had a blazing start to his final season where he gathered 61 tackles and seven sacks in five games. However, he suffered a season-ending injury against Kansas in his sixth game of the season. Even with the injury, he was named to the First-team All-Big 12 and First-team All-American.

STRENGTHS: Physical Dominance

Standing at 6’6″ and 271 lbs, Tyree is one of the more impressive human beings in this draft. His mix of length and power makes it a difficult matchup for any offensive lineman. He has an explosive first step and he’ll be too athletic to face guards. His experience can put him as a 3-4 outside linebacker as well.

WEAKNESSES: Need To Add More Moves

As the game goes on, he needs to add more moves to make an impact. Sometimes, he becomes too stagnant and becomes a non-factor in the play. He’s not as fluid as people hoped and this shows when he cannot go through smaller gaps.

PLAYER COMPARISON: Matt Judon

TEAMS WHO COULD DRAFT HIM

Tyree Wilson has a lot of fans as he seems to be a lock to be in the Top 10. EDGE players have so much impact on the game that getting a premium prospect can be a cornerstone player for a decade. Teams like Atlanta and the Raiders are perfect fits for him as they need to improve their defense.
