but the Chiefs 1st Round pick will be.....
DT Muhammad Wilkerson - Temple University (via templeFBvideo)
35 1/4 in.
Wilkerson is an elite 3-4 defensive end prospect with idea size, excellent shedding ability and the athleticism to pursue from the backside and rush the passer. Jolts offensive lineman at the point of attack, can beat the double team, finds the football and makes plays against the run. Does not have rare first-step quickness but can take a direct line through blockers to pressure the quarterback and has range against the run. Despite size, is a three-down guy who plays with a high effort level for four quarters. Wilkerson's stock has risen quickly and he could come off the board in the middle of round one.
STRENGTHS: Wilkerson's a prototypical blend of height, bulk and speed for a defensive tackle or five-technique. Dominant against the run. Has great get off, holds up at the point of attack, shows outstanding ability to shed, and very good closing burst to the ball. Very effective power bull rusher. Has good hands. Good stamina.
WEAKNESSES: Hard to point out weaknesses in his game. Does not possess elite initial quickness off the ball as a pass rusher or penetrating against the run but still good in this area. Shows some nastiness on occasion but would like to see him play with a more consistent mean streak.
If the Patriots don't take him at #17, the Chiefs will definitely take him at #21 if he is available. He will be BPA and Pioli has gone on record of saying he will take BPA. He's not a flashy pick because we already have Dorsey and Jackson as our DE's, but he can play anywhere on the line and plays the run and pass exceptionally well.
