The Jaguars sent their 'braintrust' to Connecticut to work out Huskies cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson on Saturday, according to a report from Tony Pauline of USA Today.
Wreh-Wilson has been a player that has been a logical connection for the Jaguars considering his size and length. At 6-1, 195 pounds with 32-inch arms, he fits the mold of the type of lengthy player that found success in Gus Bradley's defensive system in Seattle; however, the size doesn't necessarily mean that he is a great fit in a press system.
Rob Rang of CBS Sports broke down the strengths and weaknesses of Wreh-Wilson and said he wouldn't trust the former-Huskies cornerback to play in man coverage:
He lined up in both press and off-coverage in Mobile, but struggles in his transition to quickly flip his hips and blanket his man downfield. Not every cornerback can play man coverage and I'm not sure I would trust Wreh-Wilson outside of zone coverage.
Wreh-Wilson was a starter for the Huskies as a freshman and had a strong sophomore season with four interceptions, two of which were returned for touchdowns. After missing most of his junior season with a knee injury, he was named the team's most valuable player as a senior.
Update: Wreh-Wilson wasn't the only one the Jaguars were in town to see, according to Pauline.
