    Pros (+): The younger brother of former Gator corner Quincy Wilson, he’s a long and rangy prospect that has many tools in his toolshed. Wilson has experience time at both outside corner and in the slot as a nickel defender against multiple receiver sets. He shows to be a quick processor of plays and when noticing the offenses plan of attack, he seeks it out quickly by striking it. Always playing on balance, he’s smooth in his pedal and always keeps his toes underneath his shoulder in man coverage and plays from a crouched position when turning his back to the sideline as a zone defender. Wilson brings tremendous value as a blitzer and it frequently used on corner blitzes from the boundary (short side of the field). He embraces the physical asking price of the game and is unafraid with coming up to tackle. Wilson shows closing speed and is able to close out plays when opportunities are presented as both a blitzer and run defender. He’s a prospect with lots of tools at the position, but waiting for someone to take them off of the shelf and help him utilize them on a consistent basis.

    Cons (–): Wilson predominantly plays off-man coverage and he isn’t asked to get hands on immediately at the line frequently. Awaiting 3-5 yards prior to contact with the opposition, he seems to be uncomfortable with his hands as they are ready to strike, but remain in an awkward position. As a result, he often whiffs when attempting to land hands on while turning and running exiting phase. Inconsistencies with his jam attempts leaves him playing catch up and he hasn’t proven yet that he’s able to recover and still disrupt throwing windows.
