Watch: Raiders’ DT Christian Wilkins Intro Press Conference

Wilkins, a 6-4, 310-pound defensive tackle, joins the Raiders after spending the last five seasons (2019-23) with the Dolphins, after initially being drafted by Miami in the first round (13th overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. Wilkins has appeared in 81 career games (77 starts), totaling 353 tackles (202 solo), 20.5 sacks, 43 tackles for loss, one interception, 19 passes defensed, four forced fumbles and six fumble recoveries. He has also added two career receptions for two yards and two touchdowns.

A two-time team captain with the Dolphins, Wilkins’ 353 career tackles since entering the league in 2019 are the most among all defensive linemen over that span and the second most in NFL history among defensive linemen in their first five NFL seasons.

Last season, Wilkins started in all 17 games and finished with 63 tackles (36 solo), 9.0 sacks, 10 tackles for loss, two passes defensed, 23 quarterback hits, one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries. His 9.0 sacks were a single-season career high and ranked fifth in the NFL among defensive tackles.
