    Wilson is a hard worker and smart player who doesn’t rely on his athleticism to win matchups. He routinely flies to the football even if it’s on the complete opposite side of the field. This is why he’s such a promising prospect because he has elite athleticism to go along with top-notch technique.

    He’s a sound tackler who doesn’t hesitate to come up to support the run.

    Wilson jumps off the screen because of his ability to limit separation. He’s always in stride with his target on deep routes and in the hip pocket on quick hitters. This is the type of cornerback a defensive coordinator can feel comfortable putting on an island.

    His ball skills make him a threat to create turnovers and also generate pass breakups. Overall, this is a player who isn’t flashy but gets the job done. Wilson has as much upside as any defensive back in the 2017 NFL Draft class.
