Report: Steelers To Bring In Connecticut CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson Tuesday For A Pre Draft Visit


Tony Pauline is reporting Monday on Twitter that Connecticut cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson will have a pre draft visit with the Pittsburgh Steelers on Tuesday.

Wreh-Wilson measured in at the NFL combine at 6006 and 195 pounds. During the agility drills, the cornerback posted a 4.53 40-yard dash, 1.64 10-yard dash, 2.66 20-yard dash, 4.12 20-yard shuttle, 11.56 60-yard shuttle, 6.97 three-cone drill, 36-inch vertical jump, 10’8” broad jump and bench pressed 225 pounds 14 times.

In his 46 games at Connecticut, Wreh-Wilson amassed 180 total tackles, 8 interceptions and 27 pass breakups.

Wreh-Wilson is a long corner that plays on the outside. He possesses above average closing speed to go along with good short area quickness when breaking on the ball. He is, however, not regarded as a great tackler, which is a must attribute for Steelers cornerbacks.

As evidenced by his 8 interceptions, Wreh-Wilson does have good ball skills. His lack of hip fluidity, however, would make him a liability in man coverage, so he likely best fits a zone heavy defensive scheme.

    I like his size.. but unless he learns to be a sound tackler and throw his body around, no thank you
