Tyree Wilson Dynasty IDP Rookie Profile – Looking Back

Tyree Wilson was a three-star prospect in the 2018 recruiting class out of West Rusk High School in New London, Texas. He initially committed to, and later decommitted from, Washington State. He ended up with many offers from colleges like Florida, Texas, Arkansas, and Baylor (among others), but ultimately committed, and attended, Texas A&M. He did not play as a true freshman, and did not play much during his redshirt freshman year there. Following the 2019 college season, he transferred to Texas Tech in August of 2020.

As you can see below he did not play much his first year at Texas Tech, but he had a statement season his Junior year as a starter. He followed that up with an even better 2022 season. Unfortunately his 2022 season was cut short by a foot injury in November that later required surgery.

Following the 2022 season, Tyree was named to the All Big-12 1st Team and was a 1st Team All-American. On November 19, 2022, Tyree declared for the 2023 NFL Draft, forgoing his senior year of college.

Tyree Wilson IDP Rookie Profile – Looking Forward

Tyree is a mountain of a man, coming in at 6’6″, 271lbs, with 35 5/8″ arms and 9 5/8″ hands. The scary thing about that is he has room to add more muscle and functional strength, which would make him an even more imposing figure for offenses to face. We do not have a lot of testing numbers for Tyree, as he did not participate in the Combine while recovering from foot surgery. He had hardware in his foot removed on March 21, 2023, so he was unable to participate in Texas Tech’s Pro Day.

At the NFL level, he is probably best suited as a defensive end. He did play outside linebacker a lot at Texas Tech, but given his size he will fit better as a defensive end.

In terms of on-the-field performance, Tyree does well at getting off of blocks, using his lower body strength and great hand placement. His length allowed him to get tackles that others may not while working containment, and he is an adept pass-rusher with a few different moves he utilizes.

Areas that could stand for improvement to ascend into the upper echelon in the NFL are staying low and improvement of play recognition. Players his size can have issues keeping low to get under offensive linemen, and without elite speed developing quicker play recognition will help him get to the ball quicker, whether it is held by a running back or quarterback. Finally, if he is used as an outside linebacker, he is not adept in coverage, which is the one potential downside to his size.

Tyree should be among the top 10 players taken in the 2023 NFL Draft, and within the first few defensive players drafted. He is currently within the top five IDP rookies for the 2023 class in our Dynasty IDP Rookie Rankings and Rookie PPR and IDP Combo Rankings over at RotoHeat.
