08/26/2013 - TOP MISSOURI PROSPECTS FOR THE 2014 NFL DRAFT: 4. ILB Andrew Wilson (6-3, 240, 4.72)...Having produced top 100 picks in the last four drafts in Atlanta Falcons' standout Sean Weatherspoon and Gooden, the Titans' rookie, it is fair to say that Missouri is developing into a solid NFL distributor of future pro linebackers. Wilson, the team's leading tackler each of their past two seasons, looks next on the list.

On paper, Wilson's 79 tackles a season ago aren't eye-popping. Further, they are a drop from his breakout 2011 campaign in which he earned Second Team All-Big 12 honors with 98 stops. Wilson emerged as a better big play threat during his second starting season for the Tigers', however, ranking among national leaders (at linebacker) with four forced fumbles and showing better awareness in coverage (career-high four passes broken up).

Wilson lined up on the outside for the Tigers in 2012 but will be making the switch inside as a senior. The change could result in even more impressive numbers for Wilson, as it caters to his strengths. Wilson isn't a top-notch athlete but he plays with a good motor and hustles to the ball. He's a physical hitter who uses his hands well to rip at the ball. If he can prove capable of handling the position change, Wilson could warrant Day Three consideration. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
