Name: Tavon Wilson
Selected: Round 2, Pick 16
Height: 6 – 0
– Tough, physical player that plays the run well.

– Reads and reacts quickly, better in zone coverage.
– Can be a liability in coverage.
– Mediocre tackler and must improve to play safety.
– Needs to clean up his backpedal
This is a head scratcher for many Patriots fans. For starters, Wilson was supposed to be a fifth round to even potential undrafted free agent player, not a second round selection. Obviously New England loves him, but I am certainly left wondering why the Pats couldn’t have traded down to acquire the right “value” which they put such a high standard on.
In any case, a second round pick is expected to contribute right away, if not start. I would think Belichick has plans for Wilson to contribute early and he could add some Patrick Chung insurance.
