Wilkins entered the year as a preseason All-American and the perceived best NFL prospect on Clemson’s roster. But Wilkins has underwhelmed a bit this season, earning much of his production thanks to teammate pressures and group tackles. Still, Wilkins has shown his athletic flexibility, high-effort play and defensive line versatility.
His activeness and disruption will be key against an Alabama rushing attack that relies on wearing down a defensive line and attacking with multiple runners. If Wilkins can clog up the interior and use his length and bend to hold down the inside rushing lanes, he’ll make a bigger difference in Clemson’s outcome than his stat-line will indicate.
