    Quincy Wilson’s 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine, as the former Florida star looks to increase his draft stock.


    He wasn’t as highly recruited as Vernon Hargreaves III or Teez Tabor were, but when Quincy Wilson got to Florida, he made the most of his opportunities.

    With Hargreaves serving as a rookie for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this past season, Wilson stepped into a full-time role as a starting cornerback for the Gators opposite Tabor.

    And he quickly evolved from a Day 2 selection into a potential top-10 draft pick. He picked off three passes and returned one for a touchdown. Wilson also totaled 33 tackles and broke up six passes.

    After the three years he spent in Gainesville, though, Wilson finished with six interceptions, 14 pass deflections and 84 tackles. Many have flipped their positions and now believe Wilson is the superior cornerback to Tabor.

    He needed a respectable time in the 40-yard dash to increase his chances of being a top-10 pick, and the 6-foot-1, 213-pound cornerback did just that. On his first attempt, Wilson beat out Tabor by posting a time of 4.56 seconds. On his second attempt, Wilson posted a time of 4.54 seconds.

    For a lengthy, physical defensive back like Wilson, that’s a superb time. Assuming he does well in his team interviews, that performance in the 40-yard dash should all but guarantee Wilson a spot within the top 15 draft picks, let alone a spot as a first-round selection.
