The Philadelphia Eagles are using one of their 30 official visits ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft on Wyoming linebacker Logan Wilson, according to NJ.com reporter and BGN alumnus Mike Kaye.
Wilson played defensive back in high school and was incredibly productive at Wyoming so it’s no wonder he’s on the Eagles’ radar. The redshirt senior finished his college career with 409 total tackles, 34.5 tackles for loss, 14 passes defensed, 10 interceptions, seven sacks, five forced fumbles, and three defensive touchdowns. Pretty good.
The Eagles obviously have a need at linebacker with only Nathan Gerry, T.J. Edwards, Duke Riley, and Alex Singleton under contract for 2020. The team could look to draft Wilson with one of their two third-round selections with the hopes he can immediately contribute as a rotational player before developing into a full-time starter.
Scouting report via NFL.com’s Lance Zierlein:
Ultra-productive three-year team captain with instincts and cover talent to find work as an every-down linebacker. His play recognition, burst and lateral agility help him play faster than his timed speed and his fundamentals as a tackler are as good as you’ll find in this draft. Wilson needs more consistency of approach at taking on blocks and it may take him a minute to adjust to NFL game speed. He should be a core special teams member early, but possesses the tangibles and intangibles to become a productive pro as an inside or SAM (strong-side) linebacker.
