Mekhi Wingo has fast hands and is extremely quick off the snap. At the 0:55 mark in the video below he gets through multiple defenders with speed and strength to quickly blow up the play for a sack. Adept at using his size to leverage defenders. Great closing speed and takes angles to the carrier after reading the play well. Wingo has an effective swim move regularly used to swat opposing blockers aside. Strong drive for the ball even when double covered. As his already higher strength increases with his recognition skills, he could develop into a scary pass rusher and draft selection.
