Wilson is learning arguably a much more difficult system.

There's nothing wrong with us developing Wilson at the rate that we are. He's going to get there. Plenty of the first and second round LB draft picks aren't sitting at the top of their depth chart either. No need to rush this and we've done a fine job developing our own.
You'll get no arguments from me, since you clearly know what you are writing about. And after all, I was just trying to guess the meaning of this thread...
as I though that was the point of the obscure initial post.

I'm not worried. Wilson will be fine.

Even though it's very possible that Bussey may wind up being better than Wilson.

I know... it wasn't a dig at you by any means. It was a response to the overall implications of the thread.

Didn't take it as one either...

Consequently, I always find all the College info and back-stories very intriguing, and it amazes me at times how much you guys know about
certain programs... their track record, tendencies, etc. I've never been able get excited about the College games - not even when I got my
undergrad in the States... wasn't even interested in our own team. Still I find all the stuff you guys write here about the College side of the game
fascinating on a day-to-day basis.

Everyone knew Wilson was a bit more raw than the typical LB prospect. His physical measurables were off the charts but his football IQ needed some refinement.

If he was NFL ready mentally, he wouldn't have gottten out of the 1st round.

I actually wanted the Saints to draft Kelvin Sheppard, but Im more then happy with Wilson. GW will coach him up and he will be fine. Good luck to Kelvin Sheppard. Geaux LSU Geaux Saints...
