C J Wilson   CB   Baylor

 

STRENGTHS 

C J has very good size and speed to play his position.  He has all the athletic talent to be a good CB for the next level.  He has the correct measurables and does a good job on the field in both man-to-man and zone coverages.  C J is a solid tackler and looks like he is a good teammate; he did a solid job for his college team. 

 

NEEDS TO IMPROVE

C J has the talent, but his biggest problem is all in his head.  He needs to understand situational football to help him understand when to take calculated risks.  He looks too much into the backfield and can be easily fooled and set up for the big play.  He needs more coaching, but the truth is, you have to wonder how well C J takes what he learns on the practice field and puts it into play.  I also question his hands for special team duties.  A lower round CB has to be able to impact on special teams to give himself time to improve his CB skills.

 

TALENT BOARD ROUND: 6

C J has very good potential to be a starter, but he has to improve his on-field intelligence.  He has to play smarter and start developing some better instincts.  Later in the draft, C J is definitely worth drafting and developing provided he can impact on special teams during the learning process.  C J shows good potential to become a #2 CB for the team that drafts him.
