View Full Version : One guy people are forgetting about on the Dline

Jimmy Wilkerson.

If he (ever) lives up to his potential, he will provide SOLID depth to this line, being able to play pretty much all the positions.

In all likelihood, he doesn't become THAT good. But I can definitely see him being a John Browning-type player for us, only a hell of a lot healthier. Which is very important, actually. Those type of players play a critical role in a Dline rotation

I agree. He's a good utility lineman who is still young and can play both DE and DT. I think he makes Hicks expendable.

Could be dud, could be a stud??

Eh, I think he's a lot less of a "Boom or Bust" prospect than that. I'm thinking something right between the two extremes.

he's not really giving a reason to remember him

I wish they'd stop ****ing around with him at DT. It's like when Vermeil had the bright idea to put Freeman at DE.

Just leave him at his natural position and be done with it.

I wonder why everybody forgets about him. Hmm.

He did play a lot last year in exactly the same capacity described by the original poster. He is kind've like Browning in that he can be solid but is never gonna jump out at ya.

He looked good at DT up at River Falls. He never really looked like a natural DE to me, because of his height, mainly. I know that paradigm is shifting with shorter players succeeding out there like Freeney (and hopefully Hali).

Jimmy who?
I am trying to remember, but.... has he done anything memorable?
