STRENGTHS - Wreh-Wilsons athleticism enables him to play both tight and off man coverage. He has the quickness to get into coverage quickly and react well to the play. He is a physical player and is able to play bump and run, and while he needs to flip his hips more quickly, he has the agility to get into coverage quickly should the receiver break from him at the LOS. He has very good ball skills and has the ability to play tight coverage and knock the ball away without committing penalty. Great footwork combined with his physicality enables him to break from blocks quickly in the open field.
WEAKNESSES - Wreh-Wilson has slow hip turn, which will give the receiver an opportunity to turn him around. I would like to see much more explosion from him in the open field as there are times he will pull up and not continue going to make a play. Wilson needs to strongly improve his tackling as he has a tendency to go for the hard hit and throw his body into the ball carrier instead of wrapping up. In the open field he needs to do a better job of squaring up the ball carrier and needs to go with more effort in backside pursuit.
SUMMARY - Wreh-Wilson is an extremely athletic player that has excellent coverage skills and excellent ball skills. He has the quickness and speed to stay with a receivers deep down the field but he does need to do a better job of flipping his hips as he can get turned around by some of the better route runners and quicker receivers at the next level. He has the quickness to come up on a TE or RB, but he needs to explode to the ball carrier more than he does. His quick feet , instincts, and physicality allow him to break away from a block quickly and gives him the opportunity to make a play on the ball carrier. He has the skill set to be a very good player in the NFL but he needs to become more consistent and be a guy that has a nose for the football. He too often lets up on a play and does not go with 100% effort throughout the play. On the other end there are times where he will try too hard and try to make a blow up hit and will launch his body instead of squaring up and making a sound tackle. Overall, Wreh-Wilson has a very good chance at becoming a starting CB in the NFL, however until he can improve on his weaknesses and his effort level, it will be difficult to use him as an every down corner.
