Apparently one of the reasons Wilson has been working so much at corner in camp is that he will be playing corner in the nickel. (According to Solomon). Our nickel D looks like Seymour-Wilfork-Warren Vrabel-Bruschi-Colvin Samuel-Hobbs-Wilson-Harrison-Sanders Over the course of a season we play 50% or more of our defensive downs in the nickel or dime. Against some teams, ie Indy, the nickel is our base. That is an awful good looking nickel package. And as Solomon alluded to we may play it more and more as a 'regular D' It makes some sense to me because with Harrison at S and Wilson at corner, we have excellent run support from the secondary. I would want Wilson playing outside as the weakside corner because where we are susceptible in the run game from this set is outisde on the weakside. As a sidenote, I have seen BB play this scheme on first down with both the base D removing the weakside ILB or the weakside OLB, that is line up in the base with an ILB or OLB replaced by an extra DB. Wilson strikes me as one of the best run support corners in the league if he plays there. Essentially you would have the front 3 aligned as normal, Colvin SSOLB, Bruschi strongside ILB, and Vrabel weakside ILB/OLB. Vs. the Colts last year they ran this with Bruschi on the weakside, and he was able to get outside on wide runs because there was no TE, Seymour was head up on the T, and the G couldnt reach him. I like Vrabel better in this role however. Wilson would be the weakside corner to play force, and Harrison would provide run support inside. Convert this to the base 3-4 by removing any one of the dbs and inserting Beisel, Brown, or TBC. Vrabel is going to turn out to be 1/2 OLB, half ILB.
