Kyle Wilson cornerback for the Jets is entering his third season out of Boise State as the Jets third cornerback. On a good day Revis and Cromartie are locking down the two best receivers, and with the acquisitions of safeties Yeremiah Bell and LaRon Landry what role does Wilson play? He's played in all 32 games has 62 tackles and 2 interceptions. He isn't a pass rusher, we think, and he isn't a safety type of cornerback, so where does he fit. Besides covering the third best receiver he could fill in the second best receiver and Cromartie can go number one and Revis can rush the quarterback or Cromartie can rush the QB. Wilson will be used a lot of different way and no matter where he is someone on the Jets team will benefit from where he plays.
Wilson in a lot of plays will probably be playing a zone type of corner and let the wide receiver get passed him for Landry or Bell to guard and Wilson will be there for a short drop pass or a late pitch to the running back, a screen, or a QB rush which has hurt the Jets in the past. He needs to get better at recognizing the offense and recognizing what type of play it is after the snap. If its a throw back up, a pitch go get the running back. I expect Wilson to get more tackles this season and have a successful season all in all.
