Quincy Wilson was the 14th pick in the second round (No. 46 overall) of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Indianapolis Colts.
Wilson arrived in Gainesville as an Under Armour All-American out of Fort Lauderdale’s University School, but he was often overshadowed in the Gators’ star-studded secondary. He declared for the draft after an All-SEC second-team effort as a junior, during which he recorded 33 tackles, three interceptions and six pass break-ups. His father, Chad Wilson, was an All-Big East defensive back at Miami, and his younger brother, Marco, is a four-star defensive back signed to Florida.
Wilson boasts the size, physicality and competitiveness of an NFL corner. He uses press coverage to harass receivers and mask some athletic and speed shortcomings. His coverage isn’t always clean, but it’s effective: He allowed an NFL passer rating of only 29.9 on throws against him last season, according to Pro Football Focus. His future might be at safety, where NFL.com wrote “his instincts, ball skills and willingness to tackle will all serve him well.”

Quote of note:
“Wilson is a gambler and that’s more than likely to see big plays, both good and bad, on his NFL highlight reel. … He has a chance to be a Day 1 starter in the NFL.” — Pro Football Focus.
