Wilson was drafted in the first round with the 17th overall pick of the 1991 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, where he played from 1991 to 1994. It was a surprising pick, not because of Wilson, but because at the time the Redskins rarely drafted in the first round. He was a member of the 1991 Redskins team that won Super Bowl XXVI.
