Overview:

Wheeler has amazing size, he is a good run blocker, a good pass blocker, and a good pass protector. He is also a mauler, a tough nosed player, he gets a good push on the defensive line, and he does not get pushed around that easily at the line of scrimmage. On the other side, he does have great speed, he looks a bit stiff at times, possible due to his being so tall, he also dealt with planter fasciitis while at USC, and he had a run in with police back in 2015. With that said, I view Wheeler as a early day 3 pick, with a chance of making it into the end of day 2 when it is all said and done.
