OG Torrian Wilson (UCF) - Undrafted free agent

Much like fellow undrafted free agent Al Bond, Torrian Wilson joined the Detroit Lions as an offensive guard after playing tackle in college. Bond did start some games at guard while at Memphis, but it appears that Wilson was strictly a left tackle at UCF.

Random fact

Of the Lions' undrafted free agent signings this year, only safety Isaiah Johnson got a bigger signing bonus than Wilson. The Lions gave Wilson $11,000 to sign in order to make sure he ended up in Detroit instead of New England.

What the experts are saying

Pro Football Focus:

A better run blocker than pass protector, Wilson had the fifth-highest run block grade among draft eligible left tackles. His 96.0 Pass Blocking Efficiency ranked 62nd out of 92 draft eligible tackles.


Outlook for 2015

Wilson has a good chance to make the 53-man roster simply because there's a spot up for grabs at offensive guard. The Lions may look for someone with more experience to fill that role, but if they opt to go with a young, developmental player, Wilson could fit the bill. At the very least, I would expect him to garner serious consideration for the practice squad if he doesn't make the team.
