Blidi Wreh-Wilson, CB, Connecticut

Blidi Wreh-Wilson of the University of Connecticut is a tall cornerback prospect with some concerns about his speed. A few analysts have noted he has good speed, while others (specifically at the Senior Bowl) said he struggled to keep up in man coverage.

Wreh-Wilson excels in press coverage and could also fare well in Cover 2 scheme. Very fluid movement skills. Sometimes gets too wide with his feet when transitioning in coverage, which leaves him a step late in pursuit. Good play and route recognition. Gets after the run quickly.

Drops his weight well when in a backpedal. Turns his hips smoothly. Above-average athlete and physicality is not an issue. Tackles and wraps up well for a cornerback. Not afraid to scrap in a pile or crowd. Can shed blockers and has above-average strength in his upper body. He will sometimes take an over-aggressive angle at the ball-carrier. Below-average ball skills. Long arms help him swat away passes but doesn't haul in many interceptions.

Given his long frame and above-average athleticism, Wreh-Wilson projects as an early second round pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.
