The National Football Post’s Aaron Wilson is doing a great job tracking down these pre-draft visits, and he’s got one more guy who’s coming to Foxborough: Boise State CB Kyle Wilson. I’ve verified that he’s meeting with the team.
It’s one of the 30 pre-draft visits allowed by the league. Wilson, according to the NFP’s Wilson, is also scheduled to go to Baltimore, Jacksonville and St. Louis, and has already been to Tennessee, Cleveland, the Jets, Dallas, Pittsburgh and San Diego.
The Broncos have built a history, of late, of producing pro defensive backs, with Eagles safety Quintin Mikell and Cowboys cornerback Orlando Scandrick prominent in that group.
Wilson brings value in the return game (as you can see in that video) and is tough and competitive defensively, with that trademark Boise edge to his game. He’ll probably go somewhere in the second round. One reason to bring him in is the medical: Wilson sat out workouts at the combine because of a bad hammy, but did go through the paces at his pro day.
While we’re here, word got passed along yesterday to me that the visit UCLA DT Brian Price had with the Patriots was called off. Had Price as part of my list yesterday, so I wanted to mention it here. Apparently, New England felt comfortable with its evaluation on the defensive linemen and need to get medical verification on some other prospects.
