What do you all think of him now? I could see him as a starter next year. I know you all play a certain scheme where the 2nd starting ILB only plays like 1/3 of the snaps, but I'd like to see him get 1/2. I think the scheme needs some fixin'

I think many of us already believed he should be the #2 ILB going forward around a little over a year ago. His road to the starting job was...unusual, but I hope he keeps it from here on out. Mauga was a steady and reliable player for us in 2015, but he doesn't have the range nor the instincts that Wilson has shown. And Justin March just doesn't have the strength necessary to play the way we'd like the ILB next to DJ to play. Wilson has played well every time he has gotten a chance, so hopefully he gets rewarded for that in the offseason.

While I haven't seen much live game, he somewhat reminds me of DJ. He's a solid tackler and he sometimes tries to run around blocks rather than shed them, just as DJ use to do. I think he'd develop into a solid LB for us.


I posted this pre-draft, Christmas of 2014. I still think he can develop into DJ's future replacement. I'm looking forward to seeing how he continues to develop this year.

some teams will be pretty upset not to have claimed him when he was waived.

I'm not sure what you mean by instincts. RW does not have DJ's nose for the ball. It seemed like instincts are one of the weaker parts of his game. He does have the size and physicality that the others do not. Not so sure of the rest.

I thought I was just missing something that I said. No one mentioned instincts.

However, he's only seen limited defensive playing time so far in his career. I don't think we can judge his instincts quite yet.

Jakuvious mentioned them, and a lack thereof on Maugas side ...

A Jakuvious is no one.

He's being more aggressive. Biggest complaint from what I heard was his hesitancy and it's why he lasted to our practice squad.

Good for him and the defense.

Just an FYI, Jak was talking about Mauga's instincts.

My only question is Ramik's contract length after all this? How much team control do we have left? Baseball term, but wasn't sure if we had any restricted rights to him after this year.

That interception he had against JAX was something I don't think any of the LBs on Dallas can do. Well, outside of Sean Lee that is.

Got this guy in a dynasty league. Hopefully he continues to do well.

R.Wilson is fine as a backup. But he gets tied up in clutter, trash which prevents him from getting to the ballcarrier. I've seen too many Olinemen push him out of position too.

Wilson is no Zach Cunningham or even Jarrad Davis. Anthony Walker is being compared to LaVonte David. No one will confuse RW with LaVonte David. Haason Reddick can play ILB, or any other LB position. He's got devastating interchangeability with pass-rushing skills. No one will accuse RW of being a pass rusher.

This upcoming draft presents the Chiefs with clear opportunities to immensely improve at Linebacker, a position of clear need and at ILB, a position that's gone unaddressed for far too long.

So then..do you grab a LB in round 1 or CB?
