It good to hear that Wilkins has adjusted to the speed of the NFL. I'm excited to see what he can add to this defense and am counting on him to be one of our anchors for this franchise.

First-round draft pick Christian Wilkins is already one of the team’s best three down linemen.
That was obvious time and again when Wilkins was getting his repetitions Tuesday — particularly with the starting defense against the starting offense.
Wilkins created push. He was a bundle of energy. It just felt right with him among the starters even when it didn’t always meet coach Brian Flores’ high technical standards.
And that is an improvement from the days immediately after Wilkins was drafted with the No. 11 overall selection out of Clemson. That Wilkins of four weeks ago seemed lost.
Wilkins now is not complete. But even to untrained eyes he has come a noticeable distance.
“I definitely see and feel an improvement,” Wilkins said after Tuesday’s two-hour practice. “The first day everything was real fast. And you have to adjust. You’re going up against guys that have been in the league so long, and you’re throwing things at them they’ve seen before. It’s kind of a challenge, but I love a challenge.”
Wilkins is not to be confused with Warren Sapp out there. He’s not Aaron Donald or J.J. Watt.
But he’s also not lost. Not overmatched.
