Titans selected UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson with the No. 70 overall pick.
It's the third UConn player to go in the last seven picks. Wreh-Wilson (6-1, 195) made 39 starts, recording eight career interceptions and returning two for touchdowns. He ran 4.53 at the Combine with a 36-inch vertical and 10-foot-8 broad jump. A long, lanky corner with some stiffness, Wreh-Wilson is considered a high-character prospect who is willing in run support. He has the potential to grow into a solid No. 2 cornerback.

Draft insider Tony Pauline keeps hearing UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson mentioned in the first-round discussion.

Just like others in this class, Wreh-Wilson is fairly new to football and is still growing at the edge corner position. He has plenty of speed and takes upfield angles to force runs inside, albeit infrequently making tackles in run defense, but teams will like Wreh-Wilson's length and upside. He recently visited the Falcons.

UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson finished a visit with the Steelers and is heading to meet with the Bucs on Wednesday.

Wreh-Wilson also worked out for the Jaguars recently. Plenty has been made about Ezekiel Ansah and Margus Hunt in terms of their lack of football experience, but Wreh-Wilson only has a few seasons of the game under his belt. He can be a bit tight in his hips, but the UConn product closes quickly and has good length.

ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss reports that the New England Patriots attended Connecticut's pro day and may be eying CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson.

Reiss reported the latter from a scout he spoke to. "The scout drew a comparison between Wreh-Wilson and Devin McCourty in the sense that both have "plus-intangibles" and are the type of prospects a coach would want an entire rookie class looking toward as the way things are supposed to be done," Reiss writes. "From a football perspective, Wreh-Wilson is said to have excellent size and length, runs well, can excel in man coverage, but lacks a bit in the playmaking area. If I was putting together a short list of prospects the Patriots might consider with one of their top picks, wherever it winds up landing, Wreh-Wilson would be on it."

The NFL Network's Daniel Jeremiah expects a "huge" run on CBs, starting at the end of the first- or early second-round.

The "position will be very picked over by the" third-round, Jeremiah said. Expect Alabama's Dee Milliner and FSU's Xavier Rhodes to be selected int he early parts of the first-round, but the senior class at the position is loaded up with talent. UConn's Blidi Wreh-Wilson, San Diego State's Leon McFadden, and William & Mary's B.W. Webb are three possibilities to fit in that pick projection.

UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson was given freedom in deciding how to play receivers after receiving the defensive play call.

"Coaches made the play call, then gave me the choice to play either press or off in coverage," Wreh-Wilson said. The UConn cornerback is one of the most intriguing players at the combine, being mentioned as a "wildcard" in this year's draft. Previous reports have suggested some teams view the lanky defender as a first round pick while others a third.

Draft insider Tony Pauline says UConn's Blidi Wreh-Wilson could be the wildcard of the CB group.

Pauline goes as far to say that Wreh-Wilson could sneak into the first-round. "while I don’t agree with the later portion of that opinion, the fact several people are mentioning this makes it notable," Pauline writes. We see the UConn corner more as a second-round pick.

Draft analyst Tony Pauline revealed that teams have UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson in the first round while others have him in the third.

This is not the first time there's been chatter about Wreh-Wilson's talent, as Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay rated him No. 20 on his January big board. We like Wreh-Wilson's long arms and instincts but we'd like to see him force more turnovers. He only had one last season.

Scouts Inc.'s Todd McShay lists UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson as the No. 20 prospect on his updated Big Board.

Wreh-Wilson was previously unranked, so we thought the addition was noteworthy. I'm impressed with Wreh-Wilson's overall skill set after additional film work and a strong week at the Senior Bowl," McShay writes. "He plays with balance and body control in man coverage, and he supports the run effectively." The Husky is the second highest ranked cornerback behind Alabama's Dee Milliner.

After watching coaches' tape, Scouts Inc.'s Kevin Weidl believes UConn senior CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson looks like an early second-day pick.

Weidl cited Wreh-Wilson's "instinctive, physical and balanced" style. The UConn corner will have a great test during the Senior Bowl and offers good length and trailing speed to stick with receivers downfield.

UConn CB Blidi Wreh-Wilson has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Wreh-Wilson is one of the top senior corners in the country and a likely second day pick. He is coming off of a knee injury in 2011, but Wreh-Wilson looked solid throughout the year against some top competition. The Husky also offers valuable size and length to stick with corners down the field and win at the catch point.

Former NFL scout Russ Lande believes that Connecticut senior Blidi Wreh-Wilson is the third best draft-eligible CB prospect heading into the 2012 season.

Lande does admit that Wreh-Wilson has to prove he can stay healthy throughout an entire season after missing half of last year with a knee injury. "With excellent height, the speed to stay with receivers on deep routes and ball skills, he has the tools to be a top starter in the NFL," Lande explained. Many taller corners struggle with quicker receivers, but Wreh-Wilson does well to flip his hips and stay in his opposition's hip pocket.
