Day two target: Kenny Wilekes

Recommended Posts

I REALLY like this guy. Refused scholarships to smaller schools to walk on Michigan State and carved out a solid career

In 3 seasons (2019)

Sacks 26 (10.5)

TFL: 49 (14.5)

Pressures: 71 (second only to Young's 74)

Tackles: 228 (78)

And now a testament to his work effort

A solid target with our second round 2 pick. He may last to round 3 but I LOVE this dudes game

Somewhere I heard he was 2nd in FBS this year (behind Chase Young) in generating QB pressures from the EDGE. Can someone confirm? Regardless, he's a great prospect and I'm rather high on him.

He was second in total pressures over his career but I haven't heard this specific stat.

In 2018 he had a 20.1 pressure %, with a 25.3% win rate (3rd). He was.even better this year at the pass rush.

All this while being a stud vs the run. 228 total tackles, 49 TFL (20.5 2018, 15.5 2019)

What do you think of.Carter Coughlin? He's someone that I haven't heard anyone talking about that will be a sure 1st round pick after the combine. I think he is a situational pass rusher only in the NFL. Had a better pass rush grade (92.2) than going (91.6) last year. Curtis Weaver led in that category.

He's got really good instincts/awareness, like his motor too. He looks smallish, so I wouldn't expect much right out of the gate, but a couple years of NFL lifting and he could become a good starter. I was wondering how he would be at setting the edge, but I think he would be more of a guy that's slippery, sneaks through or around a block rather than just hold stalemate the tackle. Just spitballing here - I think we need to take a DE within the first 3 rounds anyway, so he's probably as good as anybody there not named Chase Young.

He's 6'4 260 which is.solid for RDE

Great at setting the edge. A plus run defender that has had 78 total tackles 2 years in a row from the edge

Which 2nd rd pick would you guys take him with? #47 or #59?

I would try #59 but prob smarter to take him at 47 if your looking at RB in the 2nd. Way more starting calibre rbs than there are good DEs outside rnd 1.

He's going in rnd 2 so IDK if you try to get him with one of the last 5 picks. 47 is reaching a bit but reaching is fine if you hit. He's going to hit. 25% pass rush win% are few and far between. Add to that he actually records a pressure, sack, hit.etc on 22% of.rushes he's to p 3 in efficiency.

 I Like him. He's worked hard to be the best, nothing handed to him.

Something tells me he will move up the boards after the combine anyhow. Pass rushers are 2nd only to QB's IMO in terms of being overdrafted.

He was born in the same hometown as me. Good kid. Oozes confidence, but doesn't have an ego. Very sure of himself. I could see him develop into a double digit sack artist by year 2. I'd take him in the 2md over anybody but young or epenesa in the 1st. Kinlaw In the 1st. Willikes and Cam Akers in the 2nd. Best IOL in the 3rd. Sign me up.  Going to watch film on okwara from ND today. I like the physical tools of Terrell Lewis from Alabama.

He and Lynch are two guys who had terrific college production yet Im not sure it will translate to the NFL.  Great intangibles, solid motor but physically he will struggle to shed nfl players IMO

Coughlin I like way more than Willekes and will be available mid rounds.

His tape vs Wisconsin was not good. 
He looks like just another guy to me.
I think we should look at a different prospect on day 2.

Wisconsin has a ridiculous oline. Not going to judge him on just one game. With that said ive cool ed on.Willekes lately.
