Not only is Wilson my favorite.
But keep your eyes on this guy-
Jordan MaGee from Temple.

Well, that is a group of 5 linebackers to know, that's for sure. The first 2, I expected, but even though Trevin Wallace has been in for a 30 visit, why would the Packers be interested before the 4th round? Cedric Gray is a better LB, albeit a little slower but he has better instincts.

Cooper & Wilson will be 2nd rounders, Colson & Gray will be 3rd rounders. Wallace and everyone else 4th and later.

Nathaniel Watson is better than Wallace.
JD Bertrand is better than Curtis Jacobs.
Jordan McGee is a poor man's Cooper

Cooper stats- 83 Tackles- 8 Sacks-2 FF
Wilson stats-138 Tackles-6 Sacks-3 INT-1 FF
Gray stats-121 Tackles-5 Sacks-1 INT- 2 FF
Colson stats-89 Tackles- 0 Sacks- 0 FF
Watson stats-137 Tackles- 10 Sacks- 2 FF- 1 INT Best Stats & played in SEC
Wallace stats-80 Tackles- 5.5 Sacks- 1 FF

All 6 played in major conferences, I would be thrilled with Gray & Watson.

I like Tommy Eichenberg Ohio State 6'2" 240 He's one of those Meh types as well but he seems to be around the ball a lot so might be a day 2 pick.

Does anyone have an opinion/analysis of James Williams, Safety turned LB for the Senior OWL? He was the #1 Safety out of high school. Played @ Miami with Kam Kinchens, and has made the move to LB. Williams has good size & speed, and according to one evaluator really shined @ the Senior Bowl. That same evaluator said Gray made a big jump in playing performance from 2022 to 2023, and made a player comp of Gray being Fred Warner ish. Not saying he is Warner but has his traits & skillset.

GB almost has to draft a LB early in this draft, but an in depth look @ the LB that will be picked from the 4th round on would be much appreciated.
