2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Muhammad Wilkerson, DT, Temple
The 2010 campaign has been even more impressive. Wilkerson is third on the team with 70 tackles with a bowl game yet to play. Once again, tallying that many tackles is nearly unheard of and his ability to stuff the run makes him one of the most dangerous defensive tackles.
When Wilkerson is not stuffing the run, he is still getting into the backfield. This season he has 13.0 tackles-for-loss and 9.5 sacks. There is not much else Wilkerson can do to improve his NFL stock. He has been relatively consistent over the last two years and could very easily be a second or third round selection if he opts to go pro early.
2/10 Update: Temple did not earn a bowl bid, so Wilkerson ended his junior campaign with 70 tackles, 13.0 tackles-for-loss and 9.5 sacks. He lost out on his chance to show his stuff in a bowl game, but that will not matter too much once he gets the opportunity to perform in front of scouts during Temple's pro day and at the NFL Combine. If he works out as well as expected, Wilkerson should be a second round selection.
