ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper on Wednesday projected the Redskins to draft Connecticut cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson with the 51st pick.
“In this league, you’ve got to go be able to cover,” Kiper said. “Certainly, Blidi Wreh-Wilson can do that. He has, obviously, the height you want. He’s over 6-feet. You think about the length. You think about the ability he showed at Connecticut to match up in coverage and do a good job. His tackling is so-so at times – a little sloppy as a tackler. He’s got to shore that up. He’s worthy of being a second-round draft choice.
