Junior totals included 30 tackles and an interception, with averages of 29.1 yards on 22 kick returns and 12.9 yards on 23 punt returns.
Positive: Short yet explosive defensive back who alters the momentum of games with long returns. Fluid transitioning with opponents off the line, he quickly turns back to locate the pass in the air and fights hard to break up throws.

Negative: Not a strong or sturdy corner and beaten by large opponents. Does not consistently play to his speed on defense.
Analysis: McGee is an adequately sized defensive back to be used in nickel or dime situations backed off the line of scrimmage. Size is a limiting factor, yet his return skills are enticing and could help him secure a spot on the roster the fall.

Positive: Athletic defensive back with tremendous size/speed numbers. Aggressive, quick up the field, and willingly defends the run. Effective when he keeps the action in front of him and fights hard to defend the throw.
Negative: Slow transitioning with opponents off the line and loses a half step off the snap of the ball. Does not show the ability to stay with receivers out from their breaks. Not overly instinctive.
Analysis: Weaver possesses the size and speed to play at the next level yet has never fully transferred his athleticism onto the football field. He needs a lot of work before he'll be NFL ready but his measurables make him worth bringing him into camp.

Rod Williams

School: Alcorn State
Position: CB
Bio: Three-year starter and previous All-Conference selection. Senior totals included 27 tackles and seven pass defenses as well as a 13.8 yard average on 13 punt returns. Posted 36 tackles and broke up seven passes as a junior when he also blocked a punt.
Positive: Fundamentally sound defensive back who helps out on special teams. Fluid pedaling in reverse, smooth turning his hips in transition and works hard to defend the throw. Aggressively works to get off blocks and come up the field to defend the run or screens. Shows a burst to the action out of his plant. Effectively positions himself to defend the throw.
Negative: Undersized and struggles against large opponents. More of a loping runner with built-up speed.
Analysis: Williams lacks the dimensions to be anything other than a dime back at the next level. His real value to an NFL team will be returning punts.

Kyle Wilson

School: Boise State
Position: CB
Bio: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore season and named as an all-American last year. Senior defensive totals last year included 42/3/4, when he also averaged 10.4 yards on 24 kick returns. Junior numbers included 35/5/10, with a 14.2 yard average on 33 kick returns and three scores.
Positive: Solid cover cornerback who will also help a team as a punt returner. Physical, mixes it up with receivers and sells out on the blitz. Fluid pedaling in reverse, shows a nice burst of speed, and quickly breaks to the ball from his plant. Plays with a nice degree of suddenness and flashes on the scene. Gets vertical, displays good hands for the interception, and makes a lot of athletic plays on the field. Terrific return specialist who sees the field and finds the openings.
Negative: Slow getting his head back around to locate the pass and tends to do a bit of face guarding. May not possess the top end speed to stay downfield with opponents.
Analysis: Wilson has been a solid cornerback for Boise State the past three years, and as a prospect, he is best suited in a zone system or backed off the line of scrimmage. He offers a good degree of upside and could eventually start for an NFL team, but his ability to produce returning punts will help him see action as a rookie.

Anthony Wiseman

School: Maryland
Position: CB
Bio: Two-year starter who finished his senior season with 56 tackles while breaking up nine passes. Junior numbers included 49 tackles and 10 passes broken up. Never recorded in interception in college.
Positive: Hard-working cornerback with average physical skills. Displays good route recognition in zone, stays with assignments, and quickly closes on the ball. Follows receivers anywhere on the field and works hard to make plays. Displays a physical nature to his game.
Negative: Slow transitioning off the line to run with opponents downfield. Possesses marginal recovery speed.
Analysis: Wiseman has been a solid player the past two seasons and projects as a dime back for a zone system at the next level.
