Quincy Wilson was a second round draft pick back in 2017. He had a lot of expectations coming out of Florida. The Colts thought he was going to be a great piece to build with in the secondary. That has not been the case so far for his career.
Wilson was largely disappointing in his rookie season. He was oft injured and didn’t seem to take practice seriously. He didn’t start coming on until the second half of last season after some veteran advice from safety Mike Mitchell. But was that enough to save his job?
In his career, Wilson only has two interceptions and one fumble recovery. Only forcing three turnovers in two years isn’t terrible, but the Colts were hoping for more from a second round pick. Wilson faces steep competition this season as well.
With the re-signing of Pierre Desir and the drafting of Rock Ya-Sin and Marvell Tell, the cornerback position is the most crowded it has been in several years. The Colts are more likely to invest their time and effort on young players who they have drafted recently who have shown potential than a disappointing former pick.
Wilson has an opportunity to play his way onto this squad, and perhaps a staring position. But if he plays poorly in the preseason, he could find himself without a job.
