New Free Agency Winners and Losers

Josh Wilson CB 5'9 189 Maryland 4.42

By: Robert Davis

After two years where he combined for just 29 tackles, Wilson busted out as a junior in 2005. He had 73 tackles, 3.5 for loss, two sacks, an interception, and eight passes broken up on the year. As a senior, he posted 55/2.5/2 to go with an interception, and 12 passes broken up. He also averaged over 27 yards per kick return this past season.

Wilson has tremendous speed, and is arguably one of the fastest players in this draft. It translates on the field, as he can keep up with any receiver he matches up with all over the field. He has the quickness to match a receivers moves throughout his route, and the speed to not allow any separation. Wilson also shows the toughness to battle against bigger receivers, and come up to the line of scrimmage in run support. He also has the ability to return kicks and be a playmaker on special teams.

Size is the glaring weakness in Wilsonís game. He lacks the height to match up with taller receivers, and the strength to play against more physical players and help support the run. Despite being able to locate the ball and break plays up, Wilson has never been a real playmaker as a corner. He has only two career interceptions in his career.

Josh Wilson is a talented corner prospect. He has the pure cover skills to make it in the NFL, along with the toughness and versatility to help out in other ways. His lack of size is a concern, but he could develop into a quality nickel corner and kick returner in the NFL.
