RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

Wilson signed with the Lions to presumably fill the teamís vacancy at free safety, but fellow free-agent acquiree Rafael Bush appears to have won that job. Subsequently, Wilson will be relegated to a role in nickel packages and likely wonít see enough playing time to flash any IDP appeal.

2015

With Devin McCourty and Patrick Chung set to start at safty for the Patriots, Wilson -- a 2012 second-rounder, who recorded 22 tackles last season, will look to stick around as in a reserve/special teams role.

2014

Provides the Patriots with depth at free safety, but no lock to secure a big role after recording just three tackles last season, his second as a pro.

2013

Wilson, considered by most a major second-round reach in 2012, played both corner and safety in college, given him the sort of versatility the Patriots covet. He'll begin the 2013 season as a reserve. As a rookie, he racked up 41 tackles, including 10 in Week 5, when he drew a spot start. He's one to watch if injuries hit the New England secondary.

2012

The Patriots selected Wilson in the second round of the 2012 NFL Draft, 48th overall, which was viewed by many as a reach. Still, he's penciled in as the team's backup strong safety behind the productive (when healthy) Patrick Chung.
