2017 NFL Draft Profile: Quincy Wilson

Quincy Wilson, Florida, Cornerback
6-1, 211
Wilson was a three year player at Florida, and started just 11 games as a freshman and sophomore combined before being named a full time starter as a junior. He did not receive any major awards while at Florida.
As a freshman, he finished with 22 tackles, one TFL, three PBUs, a forced fumble, and one INT.
As a sophomore, he finished with 29 tackles, five PBUs, and two INTs.
As a senior, he finished with 33 tackles, 3.5 TFLs, a sack, six PBUs, a QB hurry, and three INTs.
The Good
Has the size you are looking for in the secondary.
Has generally been assigned to the best the opposition has to offer at receiver.
Plays with solid strength.
Gets into a receivers face off of the snap, and jams like a pro. Very physical.
Good understanding of a route tree, and takes plays away.
Doesn't bite much on play action.
Sheds blocks well on run plays.
Will get after a back as a run defender.
The Bad
40 time is average, and is not the most athletic guy on the field.
Is more physical than most, but has to be.
Footwork is not the best.
Gets to being grabby one a receiver starts to get by him.
Doesn't have good technique off of the snap, and plays tall.
May have to be moved to safety to cover has lack of general athleticism in coverage.
Is not a traditional ball hawk. Just six picks in three years, which is not nearly an elite cover man number.
Final Overview
Wilson could have used another year in school in my opinion, but nobody believes in him like he does, so here we are. He is an arrogant individual who lets his mouth get the best of him at times, and he really believes that he is better than he is, which some have bought into. I am not one of those people. In general, I find Wilson to be a fairly average corner when it comes to ball hawk ability, and nothing he does really jumps off of the film for me. He never won an All-SEC or All-American selection, so others know where I am coming from. In short, he will end up at safety, where he will be a dime a dozen player, but gets a low second round grade average based on hype that he himself has perpetuated.
