Scouting Report
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 240 40: 4.63 Yr: 4Sr
Pos: Outstanding athlete who is an undersized speed rusher. Fast off the edge, fluid changing direction and makes a lot of plays in pursuit. Great range and speed in every direction of the field. Can drop off the line into coverage and effective on special teams.

Neg: Swallowed up by blocks or overpowered at the point defending the run.

Analysis: Consistently progressing on the field and taking his game to another level, Wimberly has potential at a variety of positions in the NFL. Could be used as a pass rushing right defensive end or tried at outside linebacker in a 34 defense.

Senior Bowl Notes:
Monday Practice Notes: One of the more flexible players during stretching. At one pointed destroyed Jon Scott by literally putting him on his backside. Did show a tendency to attempt too many pass rush moves, thus rendering him ineffective.

Tuesday Practice Notes: Possesses nice quickness off the edge. Even showed good recognition by not losing contain on bootlegs. Has a tendency to be engulfed by bigger tackles and then compounds the problem by not being able to get off the block.

Wednesday Practice Notes: Very quick off the snap and shown nice counters in his pass rush. Registered a practice sack by properly swatting an offensive lineman's hands. Struggles greatly when a lineman gets his hands on him though.
