I see a lot more of a younger Richard Seymour in Muhammad Wilkerson when compared to guys such as Warren/Pryce. Wilkerson has the tools, potential and ability to develop into an all-pro defensive end for many of years to come.
1a.) Wilkerson is listed as being 6'4, 315 pounds and can play both the NT and DE positions. He's built as a defensive lineman for a 3-4 scheme.
1b.) Seymour is listed as being 6'6, 310 pounds and has played both the NT and DE positions over the years. Built as a defensive lineman for a 3-4 defense.
2.) Both put up very similar numbers during their rookie seasons. Seymour put up 44 tackles (25 solo), 3 sacks, 0 forced fumbles. Wilkerson put up 49 tackles (35 solo), 3 sacks and 1 forced fumble. 9 tackles behind the L.O.S which was good enough to rank 3rd overall last season. Wilkerson's impact during his rookie season compares to the impact that Seymour made during his rookie season back in 2001.
All I really know is this, we drafted something special in the making in regards to Wilkerson. Kid has the ability to become our 2nd best defensive player behind only Darrelle Revis. If Coples lives up to his talents, expectations, hype and potential? We just drafted, over the past two seasons, our best set of DE's since the drafting's of both Shaun Ellis and John Abraham back in 2000. That's a scary thought.
