Thread: Bleacher report ranks Kyle Wilson as 9th best nickleback...

  1. #1

    Bleacher report ranks Kyle Wilson as 9th best nickleback...

    www.bleacherreport.com
    =The former first-round pick from Boise State was well on his way to being considered a surefire bust until the New York Jets moved him from outside to nickelback in late 2012. The results were limited, but productive. Since 2012, Wilson has allowed a passer rating of just 72.15, which was good enough for eight in the NFL over that time span.

    Wilson was tied for first amongst all slot cornerbacks in snaps per reception, finishing with 11.6. The 71 yards after catch allowed was the best in league by 32 yards. He isnít the most effective cornerback at deterring targets because heís not a technically refined player, but he is effective at limiting big plays.

    Wilson has room to improve his instincts and ability to force turnovers and likely will need to if he is going to move up this list. Heís a good athlete who might have found his role in the league now,

    Kyle has a lot to live down; but I am happy that he always has been a sound tackler; and now the numbers show it. "Best by 32 yards"...I'll take it; the guy will put you on the ground.


    Actually I am happy that I can still trust my eyes.

    He's gone from overrated bust to underrated solid in two years, nobody talks about this guy, but he's a good player.

    He still can't turn his head. How long does does it take to learn to do something like that?

    He'll never learn. We'll just have to deal with it.

    While we were focused on Milliners ups and downs last year, Wilson settled into a solid CB. (after the 3 penalty in a row game)

    Wilson played last year with lady luck over his shoulder. He had more guys drop passes, and get overthrown by QBs than anyone in the league.
    He was also playing with the worst CBs in the league. The outside receivers were open all day so his man over the middle was targeted less than anyone else.

    Also ranks first in post-overthrow bravado and posturing.

    KW is a solid CB. The Jets want him to make more plays

    Being dragged all over the field by WR's while he's tackling: McCourty

    Wilson is the player every loves to hate, until he leaves the Jets and we see him play solidly for someone else and then everyone will cry that we let him go. I remember when everyone wanted Dwight Lowery gone, then he left and was decent for a couple of years and everyone whined about letting him go. As an outside Corner he is bad, as a nickleback he is pretty good.

    Compared to Revis as a 1st round pick, Wilson is a bust, but to most a bust is a player like Vernon Gholston or Vlad Ducasse (guys who don't belong in the NFL).

    He's the exact same player as Hill. Hill gets open, but has no ball skills.
    He doesn't do too badly because he's usually in pretty good position. QBs don't usually throw at him, but when they do he just really sucks at making a play on the ball.
    I don't think that'll change at this point. Hill has a better chance of turning things around.

    I'd rather bang Melissa McCarthy without a rubber than read another one of their stupid slide shows.
