The Miami Dolphins held a pre-draft visit with Georgia linebacker Ramik Wilson. This news comes courtesy of WalterFootball.com, a website popular for its analysis and opinions prospects entering the NFL Draft.
Last season, Wilson recorded 110 tackles and two sacks. 7 of those 110 tackles were behind the scrimmage for a loss of yards. According to Jeff Hyde (Twitter: @Jeff__Hyde), an analyst for the PhinManiacs Draft Guide, Wilson has good size as an inside linebacker, but needs to learn to use his body to be more physical. He has a tendency to be timid and hesitant to take on blockers and instead uses his long arms to try and get around the blocker to the ball carrier. Another weakness is his lack of agility or hip mobility to stay with receivers for an extended period of time, which could make him a bit of a liability in pass coverage,
The ideal draft round for Wilson, according to Hyde, is in the fifth round. Many are projecting him to go in the middle rounds of the draft, likely on day three.
