SI Grade
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
5-9.5, 189
40 Time:

BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two years, receiving both All-Conference and All-Academic honors since his junior campaign. Senior totals were 55/1/12, with a 27.3-yard average on 31 kick returns, bringing one back 100 yards for a touchdown.

POSITIVES: Fast cornerback who also impacts the game returning kicks. Displays speed in every direction, possesses a nice move to the throw and positions himself to defend the pass. Plays heads-up football, reads receiver.s eyes and locates the ball in the air.

NEGATIVES: Misjudges his pass defenses on occasion. Undersized and loses out in battles. Very quick out of his backpedal.

ANALYSIS: A feisty cornerback with top athleticism and a good degree of intelligence, Wilson offers terrific upside. May start his NFL career as a kick returner, yet has the abilities to develop into a starting cornerback.

PROJECTION: Late Second Round
