Chris Wilcox DB BYU | NFL Draft 2021 Scouting Report

40-yard dash time: 4.50-seconds
Height: 6-2 Weight: 195 lbs
Position rank: #79
Overall Rating: 57/100
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 7 - Pick Number: 251 (TB)
Strengths
  • Understands zone concepts and is aware of his surroundings. Reliable tackler who reacts quickly when he sees it.
  • Very good instincts, especially in the box. Sound and solid tackler. Takes good angles in pursuit.
  • Takes accurate angles to the ballcarrier. A strong, aggressive tackler and doesn't back down against the run.
  • Good instincts and anticipation reads and reacts with discipline. Dangerous with the ball in his hands.
  • Flashes some physicality as a hitter.
Weaknesses
  • Doesn't look comfortable in reverse and can't be trusted in man coverage on an island - sloppy transition and is not explosive.
  • Opens his hips too early and allows himself to get turned around in coverage.
  • Lacks elite speed to recover if beaten on double move. Ducks his head and swipes too often on open-field tackles.
  • Overaggressive and will miss tackle attempts. Needs to do a better job breaking down in space and using proper technique. Suspect anticipation and ball skills.
  • Not an explosive player and needs to show better bend and flexibility in his drops - plays too high.
