Comparison

Marco Wilson Arizona Cardinals

A big-time cornerback prospect that has the tools required to shut down one side of the field on Saturdays. Measured roughly 6-foot-1, 190 pounds the spring before senior season. More importantly, tested in the upper percentile with a laser-timed 4.5 in the 40-yard dash on record to go along with a 4.4 short shuttle. Smooth and controlled in his backpedal as he’s quick to gain depth. Fires out of his breaks with ease more times than not and is able to change directions better than most with his length. Does a nice job of feeling out routes and putting himself in position to make plays, which he did frequently as a junior picking off six passes and returning four of them for touchdowns. Those interceptions helped a Tampa Wharton program, which is coached by former NFL first round pick Mike Williams, make a deep run in Florida's state playoffs. Not one to shy away from contact and isn’t afraid to put his hands on a wide receiver, but must contribute to develop press technique if he’s going be a true bump-and-run corner at the next level. Has to also stop relying on his extra gear to bail him out as college wideouts will be much faster. Should be viewed as one of the top prospects on Florida’s I-4 corridor for the 2023 cycle and a potential difference maker at the Power 5 level given his size, movement patterns and ability to create takeaways. NFL upside with his wingspan and speed.
