Blewett’s Blitz breaks down cornerback Quincy Wilson, a man who offers plenty of versatility for Gregg Williams’ New York Jets defense.

Quincy Wilson may not be a starter at the moment, but that doesn’t mean it’ll remain that way all season.

The former Indianapolis Colts defensive back offers serious versatility that will help Gregg Williams and the New York Jets defense in 2020. From his cornerback duties to sliding to safety, the man can do it all.

Blewett’s Blitz digs into Wilson’s versatile game.

Wilson is in a cover 2 curl-flat zone. Lined up with outside leverage, the wide receiver stems inside with a hop-step. Wilson maintains his outside leverage (as he should) but does get his weight back onto his heels a bit as he angles off inside.

Wilson is able to recover as the WR breaks outside, and he throws an aggressive two-handed punch that widens the WR towards the sideline. Wilson quickly checks the quarterback to see if he is being targeted, gets hands-on again, shoving the WR out of bounds, speed turns and finds the ball.

Wilson needs to make this interception 10 of 10 times. He doesn’t, but it leads to an INT for the defense. Really good (mostly) aggressive jam in that five-yard window which completely erases the WR.

Wilson (near hash) is standing over top of the point WR in this trips set as he is in a hook-seam zone (different zone from the last play, where you usually see linebackers or safeties). Wilson allows the WR to get into the chest off of the snap, which you would want to see him more “ready” with his hands.

As the WR pushes upfield and becomes the No. 1 threat, Wilson drops because he is passing it off to the curl-flat cornerback who is responsible for that threat. Wilson shuffles inside, gets hands-on the No. 2, getting a nice re-route to help the LB who is matching.

Wilson shows awareness through all of this traffic to see the boundary side No. 2 working to his side on the mesh concept, and jumps on the route. He effectively guards three routes on the same play.

Wilson (near on 30-yard line) gains depth at first and then realizes the screen. Wilson maintains outside leverage on the blocking WR, being the “force” player, making the WR cut inside into traffic.

Wilson engages the WR shoving him backward. He takes an angle to cut off the WR, but the wideout throws the stiff arm that misses. Wilson gets into the armpit of the WR throwing him out of bounds, showing off some of his physicality and strength.
