    Florida DB Quincy Wilson Earns 2nd Rd. Grade For Physicality, Fearlessness

    At this point, we all know where the biggest holes on the roster are. Whether through or simply poor play, it doesn't take a genius to figure out the Cowboys are probably going to draft at least one in the 2017 .

    Having needs at both cornerback and safety, it could potentially behoove them to select a player early on who has some position versatility.

    Similar to the Cowboys' 2015 draft pick , getting a player with the ability to play in a traditional safety role as well as come down to challenge wide receivers and tight ends would be of great help to a lackluster Dallas .

    If the Cowboys do in fact go this route, Florida Gators defensive back Quincy Wilson may just be the player for them.

    Per usual, I wrote up a scouting report on Quincy Wilson for Slant Sports, and came away giving him a grade. Personally, I can see him playing as an outside cornerback in the NFL, but other draft experts such as CBSSports' Dan Brugler believe he is more suited for safety.

    Consistently showing the ability to jump on in-breaking routes, Wilson’s coverage skills in man are more than adequate. With his size and coverage skills, Wilson could potentially play in a press-man scheme at the next level.

    At 6'1″ 211 pounds, Wilson has the ideal length and frame you'd hope for in an NFL defensive back. He has long arms which he uses to his advantage in coverage, batting down balls and winning on in-breaking routes.

    A gambler in coverage, Wilson plays with extreme confidence and loves to go after the splashy plays. While this willingness to take chances could come back to bite him at times, I love the cockiness that Wilson plays the game with.

    Oh, and that he tweets with.

    Quincy Wilson did a great job of shedding blocks on the perimeter in college, and was always willing to stick his nose in the pile. Not afraid of contact, this willingness to is admirable in someone who primarily played right cornerback during his time at Florida.

    While he displays adequate cover skills and is a physical, balanced athlete, some scouts don't believe Wilson has the suddenness or lateral quickness to make it at corner in the NFL. He is clearly not a very fast player, and at times will trail off when chasing wide-outs down the field.

    Considering how well he plays with everything in front of him, a move to safety full-time might be best.

    Either way, I think Quincy Wilson can be a solid defensive back for the Dallas Cowboys. Not wiling to use the 28th overall pick on Wilson, I would not be afraid to pull the trigger at 60 to add Wilson to the roster.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe Quincy Wilson will be around come the Cowboys second round pick.

    I think Wilson might be a better safety in the NFL.
