Jets 1st-rounder Wilson likely headed back to NB

Jets first-round rookie cornerback Kyle Wilson appears to be headed for a demotion…sort of. Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post says, “From listening to Kyle Wilson, it appears Wilson is moving back to the nickel spot this week with Drew Coleman starting at corner.”

The plan all along has been for Wilson to handle the nickel duties. However, with Darrelle Revis on the mend, Wilson has been serving as the No. 2 corner. And, he’s been getting shredded. K. Wilson (US Presswire)

The Boise State product has struggled with his hand placement in man coverage, and his ball location and timing in zone have often been iffy. In cases where Wilson has arrived at the receiver when the ball’s headed that way, he’s usually drawn a flag.

Wilson played primarily outside in college. In the Jets’ scheme, the slot corner is arguably the most challenging position. But Wilson’s struggles thus far have come when he’s lined up outside, not over the slot.

In fairness, Wilson has made a few plays each game, and his raw skills pass the eyeball test for a first-round pick. But it’s a tall order for any rookie to step into Rex Ryan’s scheme and handle the frequent zero-coverage (i.e. no safety help) demands.

Coleman is not a scintillating athlete, but he at least won’t be a liability outside. It will be interesting to see what the Jets do with Wilson once Revis returns. Will the rookie continue to man the nickel spot, or will it be Coleman? It’s possible the Jets want Wilson to get comfortable in the role he’ll have all season long. Perhaps they’ve realized that playing him out of position this early could stunt his development.
