News: Wilson has taken many of the first-team nickel reps at Lions camp, the team's official site reports.
Impact: The team's nickelbacks were plagued by injuries and uneven play in 2014, but defensive coordinator Teryl Austin reportedly feels better about the position coming into 2015. Wilson's experience in the slot has a lot to do with that. He had one interception and seven passes defended in each of the past two seasons in Washington and Atlanta, respectively. Rookie Quandre Diggs has also received first-team reps at nickel, according to the team's site. In four seasons at Texas, Diggs picked off 11 passes with 43 passes defended and 151 tackles.
