2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Tavon Wilson, FS, Illinois

Fighting Illini defensive back Tavon Wilson was a team captain and all-around reliable player.

Wilson primarily played free safety, but on occasion could line up man-to-man with wide receivers. He has enough speed to play either hip, inside or outside. He likes to get after the ball when it's in the air and will typically look to knock it loose rather than go for the interception. Wilson doesn't shy away from contact and does look to lay down big hits at times. He does well to maintain gap leverage and take good angles. He wraps up well on contact.

Wilson's positional versatility will be helpful to him if drafted. The larger issues is that he doesn't particularly do anything especially well. He's a solid football player with very limited upside or athleticism. He wasn't invited to the combine but did run a solid 4.5 40 yard dash at his pro day.

In all likelihood, Wilson will not be drafted and should receive a shot as an undrafted free agent. With the high priority teams place on pass defense, he could earn his shot somewhere.
