Draft Scout Christian Wilkins News
09/14/17 - GAME OF THE WEEK: CLEMSON-LOUISVILLE, FIVE DRAFT-ELIGIBLE PROSPECTS TO WATCH: DT Christian Wilkins, Clemson, Jr. -- One of the top interior defensive line prospects in the nation, Wilkins moves differently than most 300-plus pounders, using the flexibility in his hips and joints to stay balanced while contorting his frame when working off blocks. He also flashes the violence in his hands to deliver power at contact and create conflict between the tackles. Like last season, the Louisville offensive line has collectively been inconsistent through two games, largely due to inexperience. And that spells trouble with Clemson's talented defensive front coming to town, including the nation's best interior defensive tackle tandem with Wilkins and true sophomore Dexter Lawrence, who projects as a top prospect for the 2019 NFL Draft. - The Sports Xchange
07/20/17 - DL Christian Wilkins, who is No. 15 on NFLDraftScout.com's list of prospects for the 2018 draft, is expected to play inside last season after playing end during Clemson's national championship season. He had 48 tackles, 13 for loss, 3.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and a blocked field goal in 2016. "He's made All-American at D-tackle and D-end. That's easier said than done," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said at the ACC Kickoff. "That's like making All-American at tight end and wide receiver, literally. That would be the way I'd compare that. That's a lot of versatility. He's a matchup problem and gives us flexibility." With Wilkins and Dexter Lawrence at tackle, and Clelin Ferrell and Austin Bryant (returning from injury) at end, Clemson's defensive line could be the best in the country.
07/20/17 - DL Christian Wilkins, rated the No. 15 draft prospect by NFLDraftScout.com, broke up 10 passes last season while playing defensive end. "What I think about is being disruptive on every play, however that can happen," he said at the ACC Kickoff event. "Initially stopping the run, that's my first thought, and stopping the pass, getting to the quarterback. But if I can't do that, I've just got to try to disrupt the play in any way I can. It's all about knowing football. If you know the team's tendencies and things like that, it's easier to get your hands on the ball."
