Don’t count on Isaiah Wilson in 2020
If the goal was to get a developmental prospect at offensive tackle, it really never made sense to spend a first round pick on Wilson. People talk about Jeffery Simmons being drafted to play behind Jurrell Casey and Daquan Jones for a season, but that was different.
With Simmons, he was actually a good player in college who won with power but also with refined technique and effort. That isn’t the case for Wilson who won because he was very big…and that is about it.
Wilson came in as a prospect who was supposed to spent training camp absorbing the playbook and trying to understand how to become a better tackle from one of the best in Taylor Lewan and a consummate pro in Dennis Kelly.
Instead, Luke Worsham paints the perfect picture of what Wilson has spent his time doing:
Right now, think of him a player with the upside of Sebastian Tretola and the off-field decisions of Dorial Green-Beckham. Maybe he shakes that comparison down the road, but nothing that he has done to this point shows us anything other than that.
