Prospect Profile: Stanley Wilson

Stanley Wilson School: Stanford
Ht: 5-11.5 Wt: 185 40: 4.41 Year: 5Sr

Bio: Three-year starter who posted 54/1/5 as a senior after 27/1/6 the prior year when he was used in a three-man rotation. Sprinter on the track team who ranks as one of Stanford's fastest athletes.

Positives: Athletic defensive back best facing the quarterback. Alert, reads the action and quickly diagnoses plays. Sees the field, moves well laterally and works hard. Immediately breaks on the throw, possesses a burst of closing speed and flashes on the scene. Good job backed off the line of scrimmage or in zone coverage. Has opposing quarterbacks looking away from him.

Negatives: Has a thin build and not strong at the point. Struggles getting off blocks or bringing down ball carriers on initial contact.

Analysis: A player with terrific measurables, Wilson made major improvements to his game as a senior. Will not be able to play in press coverage, but a solid first day pick for a team who uses cornerbacks off the line of scrimmage.
