Kyle Wilson: No. 1, CB, 5-10, 186

Wilson showcases good flexibility and balance in press coverage and has the confidence to play up near the line and to get in the faces of receivers. He looks fluid when asked to turn his hips and run with his man. Wilson does a nice job of staying with receivers and forcing them to widen their downfield patterns toward the sideline. However, he isn’t very physical. He relies on his body control and quickness to mirror opponents off the line, but struggles getting his hands on receivers and doesn’t consistently reroute his man. Wilson possesses impressive footwork in off-coverage and does a great job keeping his feet under him and quickly clicking and closing on the football. He wastes very little motion with his footwork and isn’t afraid of contact. He’s smooth and confident in his drop and is tough to gain separation from downfield.

Grade: 6.8
