The Chiefs took a chance on a player with off-the-field issues in first-round draft pick Marcus Peters. After that, however, they stuck to high-character guys such as Mitch Morse and Chris Conley.

If you ask his former teammates, they’ll tell you Wilson is in that category as well.

Fletcher Paige of onlineathens.com wrote about how much Wilson’s teammates, and others affiliated with the University of Georiga, respected him while in Athens.

"“Ramik really cares about people,” said senior linebacker Kosta Vavlas. “That’s his thing, he’s selfless. He’s willing to give you anything he has, even if it is the last thing he does have. He’s there to talk to you. He doesn’t place himself somewhere because of his success. He’s down to earth. He’s able to relate to a lot of different people and different aspects.”"

Paige even reported the team chaplain Thomas Settles was impressed with Wilson.

"Said Settles: “Ramik has tremendous commitment to our program, and he’s a blessing to our team.”"

Paige also wrote about Wilson losing his father to heart failure during his freshman campaign at Georgia. Teammate Corey Moore told Paige the experience was understandably tough on Wilson, but he fought through it.

"“The situation that happened to his family, he’s grown from that and learned and has been a helping hand for all of us,” senior safety Corey Moore. “He does so much positive things and he inspires so many people around here.”"

It’s obvious Wilson is a focused athlete, and his numbers, once he earned a starting spot, were impressive. Most NFL Draft picks have great college numbers on their resumes though. So, can a mid-round draft pick become a fixture on the Chiefs’ roster?

Kansas City’s assistant director of college scouting Dom Green summed up Wilson in one sentence via Pete Sweeney’s Twitter account.

Well, there you go Chiefs fans.
