Chiefs selected Georgia ILB Ramik Wilson with the No. 118 overall pick in the 2015 NFL draft.
Wilson (6'2/237) was a 25-game starter at UGA, piling up 19 career TFLs, six sacks, and two forced fumbles. A run-and-chase linebacker with athletic deficiencies, Wilson managed a 4.77 forty at the Combine with a 35-inch vertical and 9-foot-3 broad jump. Wilson isn't a particularly aggressive downhill run defender, has severe coverage limitations, and lacks lower-body explosion. His ceiling is likely a low-end starter. Sat, May 2, 2015 01:03:00 PM

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein ranks Georgia LB Ramik Wilson as the No. 9 linebacker in the class.

"Wilson could use more thump in his game. He will occasionally flash explosiveness, but we don't see it enough," Zierlein wrote. "Productive over the last two years, with ability to come in and help on special teams. Attack- oriented defense could turn Wilson into a more urgent player, but he might have to prove he can be more than just a backup linebacker." The analyst likens Wilson to Zaviar Gooden. "I think he can play inside in a 3-4 as long as he's not the 'take on' linebacker. In a 4-3, I think the SAM then WILL are his best spots in that order. I'm a little worried that he could get picked on in coverage in our league," said an NFC area scout.

Georgia LB Ramik Wilson is in the process of scheduling visits with four NFL teams.

Those teams include the Dolphins, Chiefs, Rams and Buccaneers. Wilson is an intriguing day three name at off line of scrimmage linebacker. Our favorite in that range is Kansas' Ben Heeney.

Georgia senior ILB Ramik Wilson accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

The inside linebacker probably projects best on the outside in a 4-3 alignment due to his athleticism and speed. Wilson struggles to break away when offensive lineman get their mitts on him, and it's essential that he proves to scouts that he's improved in this area. Wilson is the type of prospect who could shoot up boards with an impressive off-season, or tumble into Day 3-afterthought territory.

Georgia senior LB Ramik Wilson "is not the elite prospect that his breakout 2013 production suggests," writes CBS Sports' Rob Rang, "at least not yet."

Last season, Wilson became the third Bulldog to lead the SEC in total tackles (133), earning First Team all-conference honors. "From an NFL perspective, however, Wilson currently projects best on the outside in a traditional 4-3 alignment," Rang wrote. "Wilson relies on his athleticism to run around blockers on his way to the ball-carrier, struggling to disengage when opponents get their hands on him. It isn't that he lacks physicality. While most of the tackles viewed on tape were solid wrap-ups, Wilson can explode into ball-carriers for impressive collisions. He does not possess the functional power, at this time, however, to take on and shed blockers in the hole, often resorting to backpedaling and spinning away from opponents to escape or 'rassling ball-carriers to the ground with arm tackles. Either way, he was giving up yardage in doing so." Wilson must improve his "take-on power" to vault up draft boards, according to the expert.

Many evaluators have ranked Wilson has one of, if not the top, inside linebacker prospect in the country. We have not spotlighted his game yet, but Wilson sounds like one to watch.

Georgia ILB Ramik Wilson ranks as ESPN analyst Mel Kiper's No. 1 senior at the position.

Wilson led the Bulldogs with 133 tackles last season. "An every-down LB with the athleticism to drop and cover, Wilson sees the game well and can cover a lot of ground," Kiper wrote. Wilson led the SEC in total tackles with 133 last year, becoming the third Bulldog to pull off the feat (Rennie Curran, 2009; Whit Marshall, 1995). Scout Inc.'s Todd McShay had Wilson going No. 23 to the Giants in his early 2015 mock draft.
