3. Marco Wilson, DB, Florida
The Denver Broncos have some pretty significant question marks in the secondary heading into the 2020 season.
Things could work out in such a way where this team doesn’t even touch the secondary in the 2021 NFL Draft. They could also work out to where the Broncos would need to use two of their top three selections in the secondary.
If AJ Bouye doesn’t perform like he did two years ago or Bryce Callahan can’t stay healthy, the Broncos could prioritize cornerback even higher than this.
After using a third-round pick in the 2020 NFL Draft on Iowa’s Michael Ojemudia, they use a third-round pick here on Marco Wilson out of Florida.
Wilson was a starter as a true freshman at Florida, then tore his ACL in 2018. In 2019, he re-established himself as one of the best and most versatile defensive backs on the team, racking up 36 total tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss, and three interceptions.
With his versatility, there’s potential you could look at Wilson as a potential long-term replacement for a player like Kareem Jackson.
