2. Julian Wilson, Oklahoma
Julian Wilson played cornerback at Oklahoma as 6’2″ and 205 pound machine. He’s a hard worker who even played with a broken thumb because he didn’t want to let his teammates down. Wilson embodies the kind of players that defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo loves to have on his defense.
He can cover and run along with the best wide receivers coming his way. He was a sprinter in high school and can bring extra speed to the Giants’ defensive secondary. Wilson had good combine as well where he ran a 40-yard dash in 4.8 seconds and bench pressed 225lbs for 15 reps.
Overall, I like Wilson and what he brings to the table. With his speed and dedication to being the best of the best, he could be quite the hidden gem in this year’s draft under the right coaching and leadership.
