Wilson is a big tough corner out of Florida with incredible confidence, and the ball skills to make some plays at the next level. More suited to playing in a press man system than a zone, Wilson will likely get attention between selections 30-60 in this months NFL draft.

  • Good hands, shows an ability to make a play on the ball.
  • Gets his head around in coverage to avoid needless flags.

  • Backpedal is very choppy and sloppy.
  • Change of direction is bang average, can get caught on double moves.

Draft Grade - 2nd

Some have mentioned Wilson as a first day prospect, but I think his name will be called in the 2nd. He has the size, length, strength and attitude to be a first day prospect, but his stiffness and average change of direction ability will keep him out of there IMO. I still have a lot of time for Quincy, he's much better suited to playing a lot of press man coverage on the outside than playing in a zone or in the slot, I doubt he ever becomes a true number one guy in the NFL (although he certainly has the attitude and desire to get there), but I think he'll be an excellent and reliable number 2 corner for a number of years.

Wilson on Wilson

"I see myself as the best really; I feel that me and Jalen (Tabor) are the two best right now. As of just playmaking ability and just going out there each and every week and making plays. I’m fast, I’m big, some people think I can’t move because I’m big but there no receiver that has ever run pass me so I feel like I’m the best. I know I’m the best" - On where he sees himself in this class.
