Quincy Wilson NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’1 211lbs
- Great size
- Physical style of play
- Solid tackler
Analysis: Quincy Wilson passes the eye test. He has the prototypical size for a cornerback in today’s NFL. Big and physical. Very competitive. Willing to accept challenge of taking on a team’s top wideout. Uses play strength to overcome some athletic and speed deficiencies. Can maul receivers off line of scrimmage and eliminate them from a route if they don’t get clean release against his press. Plus anticipation in coverage. Makes quick reads on in-breaking routes and attacks in front of the route. Finished career with six interceptions. Good feel for when to step downhill as tackler. Plays off perimeter blocks quickly. Willing to stick his nose in as a tackler. Willing to be the hammer and not just the nail when it comes to challenging running backs.
- Not the fastest or most athletic corner
- Can get beat deep
Analysis: Quincy Wilson is your typical physical cornerback who can struggle with footwork and technique. His hips and feet can be exceedingly sticky in his transitions. Will fight his feet a little in his backpedal and shuffle. Footwork average in space. When feet fail him, he opts to use his hands. Could see spike in illegal contact and holding penalties if asked to play corner early in career. Reliant upon strength and grit in man coverage over speed and athleticism. Plays too tall which hinders click-and-close burst. Allows too much separation against complex routes. Below average reactive athleticism for the position and will struggle to carry long speed.
What the scouts say: “He may not be that clean with his coverage but I would rather go to war with him over (Teez) Tabor any day. He’s big and he’s tough. Tabor has more talent but Wilson just has to find the right spot because he’s got the mindset to be a pro player.” — AFC scout
NFL Comparison: Xavier Rhodes
