Defensive tackle Christian Wilkins continues to make progress in his first NFL training camp, but Head Coach Brian Flores had a message for the 2019 first-round pick after practice Wednesday.
“He’s doing a good job,” Flores began after being asked about the kind of camp Wilkins has been having. “This is a kid who’s high-energy, he’s got a lot of ability. He plays extremely hard.”
Then came the message.
“He’s got to play with better pad level, that’s for sure,” Flores said. “I hope he reads this. Somebody make sure that he reads that: He’s got to play with better pad level. But this is a talented young man. Again, for him, every play, every series is a good experience for him. The early-down stuff is good. The pass rush, his technique has got to get a little bit better."
