Pos: 
Well-rounded safety who rebounded nicely off the injury that sidelined him in 2017. Physical, constantly around the action and works well with cornerbacks. Has a nasty attitude, flies around the ball and works to make positive plays. Fluid out to the flanks in coverage, quickly makes his move up the field to defend screen passes and run plays and displays a good head for the ball. Quickly picks up assignments in underneath coverage and stays with the action. Squares and wraps up tackling.
Neg: 
Does not always take proper angles to the action and overruns plays. Ankle injury that kept them on the sidelines in 2017 must be checked out.
Analysis: 
Wilson offers solid size and a complete game as both a run defender and in coverage. He lacks great long speed but could be used as a traditional strong safety or in a zone system and comes with a special-teams mentality.
