What if that 5 technique has a career like Richard Seymour?
Wilkerson was 6'4 315 coming out of a relatively small school. No reason to think he can't eventually play at an athletic 325 which is a huge asset to any defense. He has quickness and the ability to play inside and out, which gives us the flexibility to line up someone like maybin (small) next to him.
I can see him having 6-8 sacks a year, and being exceptionally strong against the run for us, which is exceptional production from the 30th pick.
