This second one is from the home battle against the New England Patriots. Specifically, from the third quarter of that game.

In this one, Wilkerson is lined up at right end, in the circle, and will be taking on Nate Solder one on one. Solder is a good tackle, maybe he can do it one on one, right? Wrong.

Here, Wilkerson is engaged with Solder up high.  Here come the hands now.  See his feet first, however.  See how the right foot is planted?  Here again, Mo is making one move, this time to the outside, and about to use his hands to go the opposite way.  Let’s move ahead and see how Mo gets to the inside, and therefore, to Tom Brady.

Here we go. Wilkerson has his hands pushing Solder to the outside, and already has inside position on him.

Wilkerson has a clear line to Brady, unless Stevan Ridley chips him at some point. It’s an interesting choice Stevan makes, as he is right next to Mo, but doesn’t lay a glove on him.

And down goes Brady!

Mo Wilkerson has fast, strong hands, and they will serve him well for many years.
