Wilson has 23 years of NCAA coaching experience and in his first NFL season, the Eagles defensive line was ferocious. Burney has coached in the NFL for 22 years.

The Ajax, Ontario moved fluidly in the pro-style drills as the small school prospect rises higher up the draft board. Sheperd has made his case to be in the top round selection in the NFL draft.
