PLAYERS
Tavon Wilson
Round 2, Pick 48
Position: S
Class:  Sr
School: Illinois
HT: 6'0"
WT: 205 lbs.
40 Time: 4.55
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Three-year starter who finished with 81 tackles/1 interception/5 pass breakups as a senior after posting 48/1/7 the prior year.

Positives: Feisty college safety with marginal size/speed numbers for the next level. Displays fluid movement skills, the ability to go sideline to sideline and a burst to the action. Works to keep the play in front of him and fights to break up throws. Aggressive defending the run or screen passes.

Negatives: Easily disrupted by blocks. Struggles in man coverage situations and cannot stay with receivers out of breaks. Occasionally bites on play-action passes.

Analysis: Wilson was solid on the college level and will be a serviceable player at the next level if he performs well on special teams.

Projection: FA
