Blidi Wreh-Wilson

General McLane graduate Blidi Wreh-Wilson has an excellent chance at becoming the first former Erie County high school player to be selected in the NFL draft since Bob Sanders in 2004.

Wreh-Wilson, who recently completed his senior season at Connecticut, has received a solid grade on the nfl.com draft tracker. Out of the 32 cornerbacks currently graded on the site, Wreh-Wilson ranks sixth with a 77.2.

He is ranked ahead of former LSU star Tyrann Mathieu, who has a 73.0 grade.

Wreh-Wilson, who stands about 6 feet 2 inches, has caught scouts’ attention with his “tall, long frame” and his ball skills.

Here’s on excerpt from the site: “He owns the closing speed to cut down receivers quickly after the catch when playing off, and uses his long arms to knock the ball away out of their hands. But he also presents short-area foot quickness to stay with receivers when tight on the line, as well as the powerful extension to knock them off their routes.” Check out his entire draft profile on the website.

He is expected to appear at the NFL Scouting Combine later this month in Indianapolis.

We’ll provide more updates on Wreh-Wilson as the draft approaches.
