CS: You’ve been on the practice field for three days now, who’s been the best wide receiver that you lined up against?

Wilson: Mardy Gilyard has been the best, but the guy from Ohio (Taylor Price) has also done a nice job. Those two are the most polished and they get out of their breaks faster then the rest of the receivers.

CS: What aspect of your game are you trying to improve on this week?

Wilson: I want to work on my technique and my intelligence in the classroom. But I also want to improve all around, and make plays against the best competition in the nation.

CS: How do you think you compare with the other cornerbacks on the North roster?

Wilson: I think I’m the best at what I do. I strive to be the best. I pay attention to all of the small details and I go out there and compete. I love to compete and I don’t like to give up anything. I try to make it tough for the offense and the receiver I go up against.

CS: What NFL teams have you met with since you arrived in Mobile?

Wilson: There have been a lot of teams… I had a lot of interviews.

CS: Did any team show more interest than another?

Wilson: No, not really, I’ve had numerous interviews with almost every team, but I don’t recall a team standing out over another.

CS: In those interviews, did teams just conduct background checks or was there some chalk talk?

Wilson: It’s basically been a lot of background checks, but they also tested my football IQ. They wanted to know me as a person, because they’ve watched a lot of film and know what I am as a player. They just wanted to know the real me.

CS: Looking ahead to game day Saturday, what do you expect the atmosphere to be like?

Wilson: I’d expect it to be like another game. I’ll prepare for it just like I always prepare for a game. I expect to make a lot of plays on Saturday.
