2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Logan Wilson, ILB, Wyoming Cowboys

Career Snapshot
Four-year starter who earned First Team All-Mountain West honors and made 105 tackles (8.5 for loss) with four interceptions and seven pass breakups as a senior in 2019. Named Mojordauntain West Freshman of the Year and made 94 tackles (7.5 for loss) with three sacks, three interceptions and four pass breakups in 2016. Totaled over 400 tackles, 35 tackles for loss and 10 interceptions during his Wyoming career.

Smart, intense defender with a three-down game. Patient, instinctive and quickly reads and diagnoses the action. Breaks down well, displays good change-of-direction skills and attacks ball carriers. Possesses a nice build, effectively plays the run and wraps up tackling. Plays heads-up football and always looks to get involved in the action. Sells out to make plays and sacrifices his body to make the stop. Unfolds plays before they happen. Rarely off his feet, takes good angles and covers a good amount of area on the field.

Really better up the field or sideline to sideline than in reverse. Stiff.

Wilson is a hard-charging linebacker who stands out against the run and shows some ability in zone coverage. He offers scheme versatility and could eventually develop into a starter at the next level.
