Overview:

Wise had a nice career at Arkansas, with 112 tackles, 23.0 for loss, and 16.5 sacks. He has good speed, he is a god pass rusher, gets good pressure on the QB, is a hard hitter, bull rushes his way through the offensive line on the way to the QB, and gets through the offensive line with ease. He is also a play maker, and a disruptive defender. He is on the light side, and sometimes gets manhandled by bigger lineman. With that said, I view Wise as a day 3 pick, likely going in the mid rounds when it is all said and done.
