Boise State cornerback Kyle Wilson’s stock has seemed to be on the rise since a very good Pro Day performance in late March. But his stock may be rising even higher than anyone thinks.
Charles Robinson of Yahoo reported today that Wilson could be the first cornerback drafted, and that many teams like him better than Florida’s Joe Haden.
Following up on Robinson’s report, Michael Smith of ESPN tweeted that Wilson could go as high as seventh overall, where the Cleveland Browns are drafting.
Per Robinson, teams think Wilson is better than Haden in man coverage, has more lateral quickness and changes direction better.
Our last mock draft had Wilson going 19th overall. As draft day gets closer, his chances of going high in the first round appear to be getting better.
