Chargers NFL Draft Watch: UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson

The San Diego Chargers sent out secondary coaches to UConn’s Pro Day yesterday to take an extra look at CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson. Doesn’t that sound like a name that Tom Telesco would love to pick up? He loves those crazy names!

Wreh-Wilson is a 6-foot-1, 195 pound corner that is projected to be drafted in the 2nd or 3rd round. He is a big and physical corner that could get a lot of playing time with Derek Cox in the secondary. It is awesome to have those physical players on the outside.

During Wreh-Wilson’s Pro Day, scouts kept their eyes toward him during his 40-run and he did not disappoint. He was clocked in the low-to-mid 4.3 range. Big and fast.

During his collegiate career, he racked up 181 tackles, 27 passes defensed and 8 interceptions.

I would love the selection. Wreh-Wilson looks the part. His tackling leaves something to be desired right now, but it would be nice to have to 6-foot-1 corners getting physical with receivers. Coaches should be able to help him with tackling. He isn’t scared like Antonio Cromartie is of tackling, he just doesn’t do it right.
