Projection: A Outside CB that can play in a zone heavy scheme where he can use his length and speed to make plays on the ball.

Scheme Fit: Boundary Corner In a zone Scheme

Summary: Played two years at Arkansas Baptist as a Free safety where he accumulated more than 100 tackles, forced four fumbles, intercepted three passes, recovered two fumbles and scored one touchdown. A player that will thrive in a zone heavy scheme. With a combination of height and speed, a very aggressive playstyle. Play at a good speed, does a good job when playing press man coverage. But has stiff hips, which makes him struggle against smaller and quicker WR’s. Excel at playing the Wide receiver in off man coverage or Zone which allows him to use his speed and length to make plays, best example of this was during the LSU game in which he picked off Joe Burrow playing in off zone coverage. Also earlier that game he had a nice pass break up playing in off Man against Terrace Marshall Jr. Tends to be a wrapup tackler but can try to go for the big hit sometimes and miss. Uses long arms help him get off of Wideouts.

Wilson Is a Boundary Corner at the next level, plays best in a zone coverage scheme where he can utilize his speed and length to make plays on the ball. Can be a man defender but should be matched against bigger slower Receivers so he can take advantage of there lack of quickness, Safety could be a option as well due to his Zone coverage skills and his ability to break on the ball could very useful for a team looking for a solid Zone safety.
