Quincy Wilson drafted in second round of the NFL Draft by the Colts

The NFL’s Indianapolis Colts just made their secondary better by taking University of Florida junior cornerback Quincy Wilson in the middle of the second round of the 2017 NFL Draft.

There were thoughts that Quincy Wilson might be a first round selection as we headed to the start of the NFL Draft, and although that didn’t happen for Wilson, he is now living the dream of being drafted to play at the highest level of the sport he loves.

Wilson had a terrific junior season as the only defender on the roster that started all 13 games for the Gators. He had three interceptions, including one for a touchdown totaling six INT in his three year career. In three years he also totaled 84 tackles, 5.5 tackles for loss, and 17 passes broken up.

Wilson is as physical a corner as any that payed in college football in 2016 and will bring that physical nature to Indianapolis. He’s got terrific size and surprised some in combine situations with how fast he ran.

Wilson more than lived up to his recruiting status out of high school where most services labeled him a safety because of his size. His terrific athletic ability makes him a special player at the corner position for his size.
