Did the talent get better on the line with Wilkerson signing?

Tuesday's signing of Ben Wilkerson to the 53-man roster was a bit of a surprise for me. To me, it either means that Rich Braham isn't recovering well or Eric Ghiaciuc isn't playing as everyone had hoped. However, as most of you know, Wilkerson was highly touted in college before injury destroyed his draft day making him a college free agent. On the Clock Draft rated Wilkerson as the best center coming out of college. So if he's returning with a clean bill of health and Rich Braham is still slow on his recovery, this could give the offensive line a boost in talent.
