2017 NFL mock draft: New Orleans Saints select Quincy Wilson
When the New Orleans Saints got tight end Evan Engram in the first round of the SB Nation NFL writers’ mock draft, I thought it was risky. The Saints need a cornerback, and getting Engram felt a little bit like a luxury selection.
I was wrong. The gang over at Canal Street Chronicles proved themselves to be correct because their Kevin Skiver was able to find a cornerback.
Skiver: As part of what may have been the second best duo of corners in Cheap Jerseys Wholesale the country alongside Jalen Tabor (behind Ohio State’s Marcus Lattimore and Gareon Conley), Quincy Wilson had a quality 2016 campaign. He had 33 tackles, six breakups, and three interceptions. He also has the size that you look for out of an NFL corner, standing at 6’1 and 211 pounds. Wilson is a lengthy, speedy, press-man corner, but he needs to work on being less handsy with receivers (particularly downfield). His completion percentage against was lower than 40 percent throughout the year. Wilson started out the season as a likely nickel corner in the NFL, but he’s earned consideration as Cheap Germany Soccer Jerseys an outside defensive back.
Wilson’s most glaring weakness is his footwork. He seems to get lost on routes at times, and is susceptible to the double move. Although he has good straight-line speed, he’ll need work as a closer.
