Not many of the draft resources seem to think much of Mr. Wilson, however Frank Coyle of Draft Insiders Digest loves him. He's his hidden gem of this safety class. Frank's a lifer with legit skins on the wall so it's nice to see this. Here's the write up. Even has him in the top 10 at the position. - NFL Premier Player - Harrison Smith Blue Chip - Nasir Adderley Blue Chip - Johnathan Abram Blue Chip - Darnell Savage Rising - Amani Hooker Falling - Taylor Rapp Underrated - Juan Thornhill Overrated - Lukas Denis Sleeper - Saquan Hampton Boom/Bust - Zedrick Woods Hidden Gem - Donovan Wilson Over drafted - Deionte Thompson 9) Donovan Wilson #6 6-0 200 Texas A&M - Sp. 4.50 Hindu Theory: Sean Davis Rating 78 Rangy, fifth year senior has been a key contributor on the Aggies’ defense, starting for three seasons. Made a fine return from a 2017 injury to be a core starter for the talented Aggie defense. Former 3-star recruit became an early contributor in sub packages and special team units. Started one game as a true freshman before fulltime duty midway of his sophomore season. Missed the 2017 season with an opening day ankle injury. Stepped into the starting lineup midway in 2015 as a nickel corner. Wiry physique with good movement skills and overall athleticism. Aggressive alert playmaker with fine range and field speed that clubs seek in a centerfielder. Displays fine read-react ability on underneath routes. Recognizes routes as they are developing. Displays good vision for reading the QB and is a student of the game with good work ethic and the film work to know his opponent's tendencies. Decisive attacker who does not shy away from contact despite only average frame. Shows the agility to slip through the trash and take down runners. Good awareness and ball-skills with the quickness to close on the ball at the catch point. Fine body control with some impressive acrobatic diving plays. Flexible in the lower body and moves easily in the secondary with quick change of direction. Flips his hips quickly with the ability to mirror down the field and his time at nickel helped his coverage skills immensely. At times, looks good in his pedal and accelerates nicely out of his breaks, losing little in transition with sound initial reads. In run support, he can at times use too sharp of pursuit angles and miss runners. Gets out of control sometimes when breaking down to tackle on the move. Despite good catch up speed, he can be put at a disadvantage if he takes many false steps. Sometimes keeps his eyes on the QB too long and loses a step in coverage. Possesses the length, reach and speed to turn and cover deep with his back to the QB. His matchup abilities with tight ends probably gets him drafted. Tendency to be overly aggressive which causes him to give up some big plays, but his playmaking and ball skills help him rack up his share of plays. Shows the makeup to start as single-high free safety and make plays. As a senior, he returned to the field from a season ending injury in the opening game of the 2017 seasons. For 2018, he started 12 games and made 66 tackles with 4.5 TFL, 1 FF, 2 sacks, 2 picks and 3 PBU. As a junior in 2016, he started 7 games at nickel and made 59 tackles, 5.5 TFL, 1 interception and 3 PBU. At the NFL Combine, he came in at 6’ and 199 lbs. with 33 3/8” arms and did 18 reps. He did not run, but added a 36” VL and a 10’7” BJ with no agility drills. Finished with good positional drills. At his pro day, he did a 38.5” VL and 6.94 three cone. Maintains sound positioning to play the back quarter with the skills to be a starting free safety. Aggressive developing centerfielder who can drop over the slot receiver and matchup with tight ends. Needs refinement in his decision making to become a starting centerfielder. Rising marginal top 150 prospect with well-rounded skill set to start in time. Major college sleeper and excellent late value to become a total surprise. Very good for early package defense and coverage units. Hidden gem in this group. Draft Projection: 4th-5th Round - I ended up sending Frank an e-mail after reading that with the subject title "Cowboys!". Odd that he loves him as a rangy FS when the rest of the world calls him a box safety but whatevs.
