Wilson's a great tackler ... gets lots of practice with opposing receivers ALWAYS catching the ball when he's covering them.
You know who are first round busts....brandon merriweather, gholston, derrick harvey, heyward-bey, maybin.
If we cut wilson, he would be signed in a day, and starting on prob 25 teams in the NFL.
Is he a pro-bowler, nope, but only on JI do people think that every pick that doesnt make all-pro is a bust.
Arguing perfection and justification - it's like an how-many-angels-fit-on-the-head-of-a-pin argument. Quite a serious kerfuffle a few centuries back, before the internet! But in football terms Wilson has been okay and done it cheaply. He may not 'justify' his draft pick but he certainly justifies his role on the team and salary.
And no one has to make apologies for that. If we have an extra Million to spend on the OLB everyone wants or whatever - Wilson's value is a piece of the reason we'll have it.
Just because you don't like some of his antics (for the record I hate the finger waving just like tones first down move) doesn't mean he completely sucks.For all the howling Wilson draws whenever he allows a completion, the truth is that he's been pretty good this season pressed into a starting role by Revis' injury. Among corners who have played in half their team's snaps, Kyle is top 30 in receptions allowed, yards allowed, snaps per reception allowed, and snaps per yard. If you judge him against Revis and Cromartie, he won't look great. Judge him against the rest of the league, and you'll see a slightly above average starter.
Wilson's not very good. But I'm ok with him starting if it means some of the money over-invested into CB to facilitate Rex's defensive system is put into the offense or the acquisition of a 10+ sacks a year D-lineman who is decent against the run.
