Quincy Wilson, CB, Florida (6-foot-1, 211-pounds)

The Cowboys saw several cornerbacks drafted in front of them in the community mock with Conley, King, and Humphrey all going in a row from 24th-26th. That’s not great news for them, as they desperately need secondary help after turning in the 26th ranked pass defense in 2016. Ultimately, their poor secondary play led to an early exit in the playoffs, courtesy of Aaron Rodgers.

With Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr out of the picture, they certainly need at least one cornerback with Orlando Scandrick and new free agency pickup Nolan Carroll. Both turned 30 in 2017, and Florida’s Quincy Wilson would be a very welcomed addition in the secondary for Dallas.

Wilson is one player one of our writers profiled not that long ago, and my thoughts echo a lot of what Bob Rose said:

He is a much better man-to-man player than in zone, where he sometimes gets lost or struggles to find his man. Nevertheless, Wilson has terrific anticipation and a strong break on the ball once thrown. He has shown some vulnerability on inside and post routes, but his anticipation and long reach allows him to often undercut those patterns to make plays. Wilson's size, athleticism, and play recognition cause many to believe that he could also transition to safety.

With the addition of the Florida corner, the Cowboys could keep using Scandrick in the slot and kick Wilson and Carroll on the outside.
