Once again, Gang Green adds additional talent to its arsenal of defensive players by trading the 211th pick to the Indiana Colts for cornerback Quincy Wilson.
The 6-foot-2, 193-pound defensive back was drafted in 2017 in the second round out of Florida. In his first two seasons, Wilson showed a tremendous amount of potential. PFF gave him an overall grade of 71.1 in 2017 (rookie year) and 69.9 in 2018-promising marks for a young, emerging player. However, last season, he battled through injuries, playing only nine games. He registered some snaps in the slot, but he remains predominantly an outside corner.2017 NFL Combine:
- 40 Yard Dash – 4.54 seconds
- Bench Press – 14 reps
- Vertical Jump – 32 inches
- Broad Jump – 118 inches
- 3 Cone Drill – 6.86 seconds
- 20 Yard Shuttle – 4.02 seconds (top performer)
Wilson is physical, aggressive, and ultra-competitive; he may not be the fastest in terms of speed, but he rises to the occasion with grit and determination. He’s at his best when utilized in man coverage, and a late sixth-round pick is a good deal for a player of his upside and caliber.
