Pos: 
Explosive, hard-hitting safety best in a straight line. Fires up the field, has a closing burst and plays physical, aggressive football. Squares into ball carriers and brings bigger opponents down at the point of contact. Sells out to defend the run and on the blitz. Jars the ball loose from opponents with devastating hits. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action, takes proper angles to plays and works hard.
Neg: 
Usually a half-step late in coverage. Hesitant. Possesses average ball skills.
Analysis: 
Wiley is an underrated defensive back who fits the mold of a traditional strong safety. He's a terrific run defender who's best between the numbers and could back up at the next level and play on coverage units.
