Prospect-A-Day Packers Edition: CB Kyle Wilson (Boise State)

Adam BayerContributor IIApril 10, 2010

Today's Prospect: Kyle Wilson, Cornerback

At only 5'10'', he doesn't fit the mold of a prototypical Ted Thompson corner. Thompson's preference is 5'11'' or taller, but in this case I think he should give an inch leeway. His height hasn't hindered his performance much, if at all, in college.

Wilson is the 2nd rated CB behind Joe Haden and has the necessary skill set to make a successful leap to the NFL.  Kyle is an all-out playmaker with excellent balance and cover skills to go along with good instincts and smarts. He's also a dynamic return man. On a personal note, his hair would fit in with the likes of Al Harris, Clay Matthews and A.J. Hawk.

Where does he fit in Green Bay?

Wilson is one of the duel-purpose players that Ted Thompson covets. He can instantly step in as the return man as well as play in nickel packages. He would be the top option to step in if needed. Not to mention Al Harris is 35 and recovering from a knee injury and Woodson isn't getting any younger. Depth at CB is a must find in this years draft.
