Scouting Report
After becoming a rare freshman starter midway through his first season at Wake Forest, Wilber would later overcome a broken leg his sophomore season. He started every game his final two seasons and was third on the team in tackles in his final year with 70, including 48 solo. Wilber was also credited with 3 1/2 sacks, three forced fumbles and three quarterback hurries. Wilber's speed and agility make him a good fit as an outside linebacker at the next level. He's smart, with good instincts and a keen ability to read the quarterback. While Wilber is not as adept at covering the run, he did demonstrate improved strength at the NFL combine, finishing among the top 10 linebackers in the bench press with 25 reps. Potential NFL teams may look down on the fact that Wilber hasn't spent much time on special teams, but that is only because Wake Forest found a use so quickly for him. His lack of experience on special teams doesn't figure to be too much of a hindrance as he's shown the ability to adapt before, having switched from defensive end to outside linebacker during his college career. He could hear his name called in the mid-to-later rounds.
