Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the New York Jets in the 1st round with the #29 pick.
Kyle Wilson is a tremendous football player and will team with Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie to form the best trio of corners in the NFL. Wilson has natural cover skills in both man and zone and is also a dangerous punt returner. Despite the team's depth at the cornerback position expect Wilson to make an impact sooner than later. It was surprising to see the Jets pass on rush linebackers Jerry Hughes and Sergio Kindle both of whom would have filled the team's need for a young pass rusher. Rex Ryan is one of the most creative minds in the NFL and having three cover corners gives the Jets a great deal of flexibility in their front seven.

  • Confident, playmaking cornerback
  • Comfortable in zone or man (press or off) coverage

  • Turns his hips and transitions well
  • Good change of direction
  • Dangerous returner
  • 4 year starter
  • Top cornerback at the Senior Bowl
 

Weaknesses

  • Undersized at 5'10 186 pounds
  • Only an average tackler
  • Not overly aggressive in run support
  • More quick than fast - Does not possess ideal long speed
